SEL fosters holistic development.I practice this and encourage this in my teacher training classrooms too. I have been seeing the benefits both in my teacher trainer groups, workshops as well as the classrooms that they have been in! A thought has been assailing me these last two days - When SEL gains predominance is there a less of spontaniety? Would individuals stay constantly sensitive to others' vis-a-vis their own selves that "spontaniety" can become a shade paler? I am intrigued! I am sure this issue can be entangled with so many of you with me in this forum. Reflecting while awaiting, Malathi Swaminathan
