Permission to Feel: The Power of Emotional Intelligence to Achieve Well-Being and Success in School and Life

March 18th, 2021 at 3:45pm-5:15pm EST

Presented by Marc A. Brackett, Ph.D., founding director of the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence and professor in the Child Study Center at Yale University

How do we support the social, emotional and mental health of our youth and adults in schools? For the last year, we have experienced the social, emotional and mental health effects of living through a pandemic. While there is hope on the horizon with the vaccine, the emotional/mental health needs will not disappear without systemic, strategic and intentional interventions. This second part of a two part offering will explore the influence of emotions across major life activities along with strategies to support emotional health at the individual, school and district levels.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Describe recent large-scale studies on the emotional lives of children and educators
  2. Share the Center’s model of emotional intelligence
  3. Describe RULER, the systemic, evidence-based approach to social and emotional learning developed at Yale that has been adopted by nearly 3,000 schools across the U.S. and globe
  4. Teach participants tools to develop emotional intelligence to enhance personal and professional success.
