Abstract

There is a growing awareness of the importance of addressing students’ social and emotional development and well-being during schooling (e.g. Durlak et al. 2011). Although the bulk of the work in this area has been conducted in North America (e.g. Cook et al. 2000; Rimm-Kaufmann et al. 2014; Schonert-Reichl et al. 2015) and the United Kingdom and Europe (e.g. Banerjee et al. 2014), there is burgeoning interest in this topic in Australia and the Asia-Pacific (e.g. Ee and Ong 2014; Myles-Pallister et al. 2014). This book provides a timely and much-needed opportunity to bring together diverse perspectives and approaches to SEL that are relevant to the Australia Asian-Pacific region
