Teaching is no longer only about academics—it has become about educating the whole child. Practical and research-based, this resource empowers teachers, school counselors, psychologists, and social workers to harness their collective power to support learners in their social-emotional lives. Discover how to form teams, navigate group challenges, and collectively pave the pathway to meaningful, purposeful, and sustainable student success.

  • Understand why teams, rather than just groups, matter and how they can achieve true team cohesion through practical advice for connection building and goal setting.
  • Develop greater sensitivity to the needs of a diverse array of students, and discover ways to build trust, respect, and inclusivity within schools.
  • Learn how to examine and resist one’s own implicit biases.
  • Gain a deeper understanding of how social-emotional learning (SEL) positively impacts students and classrooms and how to incorporate it into everyday instruction.
  • Access professional development activities designed to help teams enact each chapter’s content and strengthen the group dynamic.
