Second Step

The Second Step programme is a universal, classroom-based programme designed to increase students’ school success, improve peer relationships, and decrease problem behaviours by promoting social-emotional competence and self-regulation. It teaches skills that strengthen students’ ability to learn, have empathy, manage their emotions and behaviours and solve problems. The Second Step programme was developed by Committee for Children (CfC), a non-profit organisation in Seattle, Washington, dedicated to fostering the safety and well-being of children through social-emotional learning and development.
