Three approaches to preschoolers' social and emotional competence: A summary of impact and implementation findings from Head Start CARES

This fact sheet describes a research project designed to identify the effects of three interventions on levels of children's social-emotional competence. Preschool PATHS (Promoting Alternative Thinking Strategies), the Incredible Years, and Tools of the Mind were implemented in over 300 Head Start classrooms, and measures of the children's social-emotional skills were compared to those of children in business-as-usual control classrooms.
