Programmes rarely work well in schools. Full of theory and belief but practical application is biased in my view. Research on SEAL in UK said programme imlementation was patchy and outcomes vraiable even negative. Too many assumptions. To form such relationships is not about programs but about how a school operates. Look up vertical tutoring which has better answers. While there is a link (we are human), developing SEL needs more thought. A pity academics don't work in schools as teachers. They would better appreciate infidelity to doctrines.
