NEW POSTDOCTORAL POSITION OPEN NOW
The Health, Emotion, and Behavior Laboratory is now the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence. We are thrilled to be embarking on this new phase of our work, spurred on by many exciting changes both at Yale and nationwide.
In the fall of 2012, Yale University Provost and HEB Lab Director Peter Salovey was elected President of Yale. Congratulations, President-Elect Salovey! Under the direction of Dr. Marc Brackett, the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence will carry on proudly Dr. Salovey’s decades of research on the refinement, measurement, and practical applications of emotional intelligence, which he and Dr. John Mayer first proposed in 1990.
The Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence also will be the home of The RULER Approach to Social and Emotional Learning (RULER), co-created by Dr. Brackett and Center colleagues Drs. Susan Rivers, David Caruso, and Robin Stern. Rooted in emotional intelligence theory and science, RULER teaches individuals the skills of recognizing, understanding, labeling, expressing, and regulating emotions.
Use of RULER in schools has exploded in the last few years and the approach is now implemented in districts across the US and in countries spanning the globe, from Australia to England to China, from Italy to Canada to the North Pole. Schools that use RULER have classrooms with healthier climates, teachers who use better pedagogy, and students who perform better academically.
At the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence, we believe everyone deserves an education in social and emotional skills. Every day we teach people of all ages, from preschoolers to CEOs, the skills they need to build better relationships and make better decisions. We do this because the well-being of our society depends on each of us using our emotions intelligently.
Think it's time to bring The RULER Approach to your school? Our next Train-the-Trainer workshop is May 14th-17th on Yale's campus. IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS ABOUT RULER TRAINING, PLEASE CALL BONNIE AT (917) 514-9777.
