Innovative Tools for Teaching Social, Emotional & Learning Skills

History of YouthLignt, Inc.

Dr. (Bob) Bowman began his career as a school teacher and school counselor. He started writing SEL materials forty years ago and published his first evidence-based book on teaching SEL concepts and skills to children in 1980. Then, as a professor he taught SEL to graduate students in the Department of Educational Psychology at the University of South Carolina for more than 20 years. During that time he conducted research, authored numerous articles in professional journals on various strategies and programs for teaching SEL to young people. Bob and Susan then started a consulting company, Developmental Resources, that developed national conferences and trainings which reached more than 250,000 total registrants since its inception. He also conducted professional seminars, conference keynotes and motivational presentations across the USA and in several other countries on topics related to SEL.

Susan Bowman, Ed.S. worked as a licensed professional counselor and school counselor before working full-time for their consulting company. Together they have worked for more than 30 years developing workshops, conferences and resources. In 1995, Bob and Susan formally initiated Youthlight, Inc., a publishing company featuring SEL resources. Youthlight has developed more than 280 original-source books, digital resources and other tools for helping young people learn SEL.
