SEL for Tier II Interventions: Creating the Perfect Circle

The Perfect Circle: Group Methodology for SEL

Schools and youth programs are stretched thin when it comes to serving students who need extra support. Group work – such as boys’/girls’ groups, lunch bunches, or Tier 2 social support groups – can be a great way to provide targeted SEL services to more of our students. The group process is also a powerful way to help our students develop. In this workshop, participants will learn strategies to make Tier 2 SEL groups effective. Our methodology can help you design a group for your students’ needs and build your own Perfect Circle.

Participants will:

  • Explore phases of group development and learn activity models to guide groups through their development.
  • Learn the role of rituals and shared values in the creation of a positive group experience.
  • Discover best practices in group facilitation including recruitment, curriculum design, conflict management, reflection, and transition/termination.

This workshop is great for counselors, teachers, youth workers, advisory program leaders, or any other facilitator of groups.
