INEE Round Table on Psychosocial Support and Social and Emotional Learning

This round table brings together education and psychosocial support practitioners and researchers working in the field of education in emergencies (EiE) and protracted crises, with the aim of sharing recent research and tools, discussing innovative approaches, and articulating knowledge gaps in the field of psychosocial support (PSS) and social and emotional learning (SEL).

Attendees are invited to participate in group discussions and draft policy recommendations and strategies for action. It is expected that strong inter-agency commitment to this project will ensure high quality outcomes from the event.

Roundtable objectives: 

  1. Discuss innovative approaches to addressing psychosocial well-being and supporting social and emotionally intelligent communities in emergencies (examples will be drawn from multiple agencies and programmes); 
  2. Articulate key knowledge gaps in the field of PSS and SEL, especially linkages between PSS & SEL programs with learning outcomes;
  3. Develop policy recommendations for PSS and SEL programming in education in emergencies.
  4. Share progress on the forthcoming INEE Guidance Note on PSS and SEL.

This Round Table is a collaborative effort of INEE, the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC), and the University of Florence.
