Today You Yun joins me to talk about Social-Emotional Learning. She critiques the approach to SEL advocated by western organizations by showing how conceptions of the self, other, and emotions are not universal. By exploring these concepts from Confucian and Daoist philosophies, she begins to show alternative ways to think about SEL.

You Yun is an Associate Professor in the department of Education at the East China Normal University. Her new article is Learn to become a unique interrelated person: An alternative of social-emotional learning drawing on Confucianism and Daoism, which was published in Educational Philosophy and Theory.
