JULY 2014




Emotional Intelligence: Social-Emotional Learning in


The June guest is Dr. Marc Brackett. Marc Brackett, Ph.D., is a Research Scientist in the Department of Psychology at Yale University, Deputy Director of Yale’s Health, Emotion, and Behavior Laboratory, and Head of the Emotional Intelligence Unit in the Edward Zigler Center in Child Development and Social Policy. His research focuses on how emotional intelligence impacts one’s quality of life, including mental health, relationships, and academic/work performance, and on the effectiveness of district-wide SEL interventions. He is the author of more than 70 scholarly publications and six social and emotional learning (SEL) programs, and has developed The RULER Approach to teaching SEL, which posits that teaching children how to Recognize, Understand, Label, Express, and Regulate emotions contributes to their personal and academic success. Over 50,000 educators and hundreds of thousands of students have benefitted from his team’s SEL programs, and much of his research is being extended to different cultures, including England and Spain.

Join us on July 16 at 2pm EST to hear more about the importance of having a social-emotional curriculum in schools.
