Across cultures, there are many common themes to how conflict is expressed and managed; yet the social and cultural context of a student’s experience, particularly in International Schools, also plays a major role.

"IFSEL's approach to implementing SEL teaching practices, especially in the realm of conflict resolution, has had a remarkable impact on our school. After a short period of time, the work done in one division was noted by faculty, administration, the board, and our parent community to such an extent that it became an inspiration for the entire institution.. "
