The socio-emotional dimension in education: A systematic review

Becky Román Pérez and Marly Johana Bahamón Muñetón
Universidad Simón Bolívar, Colombia

The main goal of this review is to summarise the findings in research articles about the socio-emotional dimension in education in Colombia between the years 2015 and 2021 published in high impact databases such as Scopus, Dialnet, Science Direct and Redalyc. Seventy-eight papers were reviewed. It was highlighted that most studies focused on the emotional education and the development of socio-emotional skills in age groups such as children, adolescents, youth, and adults, with a greater number of works on children and adolescents. The development of some interesting intervention proposals is emphasised, although they do not contribute to innovative theoretical models. It concludes that there is a high level of complexity in this field of research and a need to overcome these shortcomings in order to develop new theories that will promote novel methods and strategies to be applied.
