Humphrey commences his critique providing the reader with an analysis and resume of social and emotional learning (SEL), exploring its historical origins and relevance within progressive educational practice today. A range of global perspectives are provided which stimulate thought processes relating to quality of assessment and implementation of SEL interventions, with opportunities to develop current practice arrangements in schools and consider the benefits of social and emotional competence for children and young people. Contrasting opinions and research findings are integral to each chapter, providing a stimulating and refreshing opportunity to reflect upon and re-evaluate social and emotional teaching and learning and associated outcomes.
