SEL and Conflict Resolution – A Deep Dive into Relationship Skills

February 10, 2021 @ 12:30 pm - 3:30 pm


Conflict is a natural part of life. When we learn and practice conflict resolution, we become better problem solvers. When establishing and maintaining a culture of equity and excellence, school safety teams  develop and implement strategies and interventions that address student misconduct in a positive, fair and unbiased manner. Educators who value social justice establish schools that reduce exclusionary practices and foster positive social and emotional learning for students. (PSEL #3) Conflict resolution is an antidote to bullying.   Many students express that they are frustrated with the amount of attention being placed on the negative behaviors, instead of teaching students ways in which they could deal with those behaviors. And…when we listen to our students, they will tell you, “Kindness is the key for safer schools.”

This session addresses NJDOE SEL sub-competencies as well as the NJ Career Ready Practices.  Attend this session to:

  • strategize how to tap into the “parts” of students that are empowering to support the “parts” that aren’t (Strength-based);
  • establish “recovery” spaces;
  • review the concepts of conflict resolution;
  • practice a problem solving process;
  • use a conflict resolution model; and
  • practice the language of respect.

Video-Recorded Virtual (Zoom) Sessions and Tips to Maintain your Privacy during a Recorded Session:  As an added value, all virtually-delivered programs are video recorded and accessible to our workshop registrants and Professional Learning Consortium Members subsequent to the session. Therefore, each virtually-delivered workshop and webinar will now have Zoom’s Recording Disclaimer enabled by default. With this feature, attendees will receive a notification when a recording starts or if they join a session that is already being recorded. The participant can then consent to stay in the session and be recorded or choose to leave the session altogether.

Tips to Maintain your Privacy during a Virtually-Delivered Session: Actively engaging in Zoom sessions is important. Participants may have concerns, however, of a Zoom session recording capturing their participation. Meeting hosts or instructors are taking steps to minimize this concern. In addition to the consent, participants can also use the following steps and features to take control of what is shared when a session is being recorded.

  • Change your participant name displayed in Zoom (e.g. only use your first name, replace your name)
  • Disable your video
  • Mute your audio
  • Do not communicate via the chat feature
  • Do not upload an identifiable profile photo

Please refer to Zoom’s Attendee Controls for more information on how to use these features.
