    Social contact is the number one topic of interest for most teenagers, including relationships with friends, teachers, classmates, parents, siblings, sports teammates and more. These all have a huge impact on wellbeing too, and they all depend heavily upon effective communication and appropriate behaviour in different situations.

    Developing an awareness and understanding of their own mix of personality styles, and other people’s, helps young people to improve the life skills that can make or break the success of their relationships. These essential skillsets include capabilities such as being realistic, communication skills, being open-minded, problem solving, being resilient and self-control, which can all be taught through SEL activities.

    Learning to recognise and use these skillsets is a route to the conscious adaptability that can help teenagers to achieve positive outcomes in relationships of all kinds, from friendship groups to getting along with teachers, as well as short but important interactions when they are older such as job interviews.
