Abstract [en]

The aim of the project is to test the extent to which systematic long-term work on social emotional learning (SEL) in school can reduce psychological ill-health and maladaptation (violence, bullying, truancy, problems with other pupils, etc,). The SEL program encompasses structured exercises for pupils so as to train self-awareness, empathy, the handling of emotions, motivation, and social competence. The project is being run for three school years at two compulsory schools in Botkyrka Municipality in Stockholm (pupils aged 6 to 16). The program also includes the training and supervision of teachers and other personnel, and the provision of information and motivation to parents. A baseline measurement was taken during the school year before the program was embarked upon. Thereafter annual measurements are taken through pupil self-reports and the reports of teachers and school administrators. Further, 30 randomly selected pupils are investigated in-depth through special personal interviews and interviews with parents and teachers. Classes in two other schools in Botkyrka that are entirely outside the program function as comparison groups.
