In this episode I interview Dr. Maurice Elias, an accomplished author and professor of clinical psychology and clinical health at Rutgers University.   He is also the director of the Rutgers Social-Emotional Learning Lab, and Academic Director of The Collaborative, Rutgers' Center for Community-Based Research and Service.  Maurice and I talk about the importance of social emotional learning and character development, particularly when it comes to adolescents.   We get into emotional intelligence, misconceptions about SEL, what’s most important for school leaders to know, trauma-informed care, fostering a supportive climate, and mistakes to avoid.  Maurice mentions several helpful links during the interview including the following:

He also blogs at edutopia.org: http://www.edutopia.org/user/67.  And I encourage you to check out his book The Other Side of the Report Card: Assessing Students' Social, Emotional, and Character Development.  I found it on Amazon.com.  You can learn more about Maurice and his work at http://www.secdlab.org/.

Dr. Rebecca Stobaugh is an experienced teacher and principal who is now an author, consultant, and college professor.  Early in her career as a middle school principal, Beckie saw the need to improve the critical thinking skills of her students.  We talk about what she learned during that process including the five misconceptions about critical thinking.  While we focus primarily on supporting teachers as they support students developing critical thinking skills, the conversation transcends the specific content and hits many important leadership concepts - the importance of mentors, achieving critical mass for change, focusing initiatives.  This was a great conversation, and you can learn more about Beckie and her work at the Mentoring Minds website: https://www.mentoringminds.com/meet-us.  You can also follow Beckie on Twitter @RebeccaStobaugh.
