Yale’s Marc Brackett to discuss his book on unlocking the power of emotions
Marc Brackett, founding director of the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence and professor in the Child Study Center, will discuss his new book, “Permission to Feel: Unlocking the Power of Emotions to Help Our Kids, Ourselves, and Our Society Thrive,” with renowned journalist Joanne Lipman ’83 from noon to 1:30 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 26 in Battell Chapel, corner of Elm and College streets.
All are invited. The first 100 guests will receive a copy of the book and a boxed lunch. The event is being hosted by the Office for Student Life at Yale.
In “Permission to Feel” Brackett outlines a blueprint for understanding emotions and using them wisely so that they help, rather than hinder, success and well-being.
Brackett has done extensive research on emotional intelligence and its relationship to learning and health. He is the lead developer of RULER, a systemic, evidence-based approach to social and emotional learning that has been adopted by over 2,000 public, charter, and private pre-schools through high schools across the United States and in other countries.
A renowned journalist and television commentator who was former chief content editor for Gannet and former editor-in-chief of USA Today, Lipman is the author of the best-selling book “That’s What She Said: What Men and Women Need to Know About Working Together.”
