Analysis of school-based, universal social and emotional learning programmes assessed impact on:
– Social and emotional skills (identifying emotions from social cues, goal setting, perspective taking, interpersonal problem solving, conflict resolution, and decision making);
attitudes towards self and others (including self-perceptions e.g., self-esteem, self- concept, and self-efficacy);
– School bonding (e.g. attitudes toward school and teachers, and conventional i.e., pro-social beliefs about violence, helping others, social justice, and drug use), positive social behaviour;
– Conduct problems;
– Emotional distress, and;
– Academic performance.
