In this article, Dr. Jeffrey Kress discusses the myriad terms used to describe education in the intrapersonal and interpersonal domains (examples include: character education; moral education; education for ethics; whole child; social-emotional learning (SEL); values or middot; identity; meaning and purpose; spiritual development; positive psychology and thriving). Kress suggests that, despite distinctions often made, there are areas in which these approaches intersect in ways that either reinforce or complement one another.
