Announcing a new partnership offering a complete,integrated SEL solution for Educators and Students

Respectful Ways Expands its SEL Programming In Partnership with Tickit Health Student Assessments

The collaboration arms administrators and educators with an integrated tool to first assess students’ mental health then target social and emotional learning (SEL) programs.


Respectful Ways, a provider of Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) Programs and Professional Development workshops for PreK-12 students and educators, is pleased to announce its partnership with Tickit Health. Through this alliance, they now provide a complete solution to schools and programs that need SEL assessments & curriculum for students, and SEL training for educators.

Respectful Ways SEL programs bring trauma-informed, digital curriculum to the home and classroom through a combination of online lessons and classroom aids and activities. It is the only SEL curriculum vetted as trauma-informed and endorsed by the Attachment & Trauma Network, empowering trauma-informed families, schools, and communities.

The partnership will leverage Tickit Health’s Digital Empathy Design framework, an approach that supports equity, more effective communication, and relevant engagement. Digital Empathy takes into account the science and psychology of communication and applies principles of compassion, cognition, emotion, and child development, to help students trust and engage with the processes and people who are there to support them.


SEL and Student Assessment

"We chose Tickit Health’s SEL assessment approach not only because it’s based on the brilliant, unique concept of Digital Empathy, but because they have continually demonstrated that empathetic assessments out-perform conventional survey techniques, particularly in diverse populations such as schools,” said Pam McNall, Founder and CEO, Respectful Ways. “Tickit Health is a perfect fit to build on our trauma-informed SEL materials for students and our Professional Development [PD] training for staff. This 3-tiered integrated solution of Student Assessment, leading into targeted SEL curriculum, and culminating in Educator PD is truly a win/win/win.”

“The pandemic has isolated young people, often creating or exacerbating depression and anxiety, while at the same time making it more difficult for educators to reach and engage meaningfully with them,” said Dr. Sandy Whitehouse, CEO and CMO, Tickit Health. “By partnering with Tickit Health, Respectful Ways now has an evidence-based, individual student-based SEL assessment tool to help educators understand the needs of their students, and to guide any subsequent support.”

While the two companies have been collaborating for some time, this agreement further solidifies the partnership, streamlining their respective clients’ abilities to leverage both solutions.
