Brackett’s Emotional Intelligence presentation slides
The practice of emotional intelligence to reduce stress, gain inner strength and interpersonal success.
Educational psychologists agree that emotional intelligence has much more influence on a child’s lifelong success than their IQ. Emotional intelligence helps foster happiness, grit and self-esteem. It is the ability to manage emotions to become self-aware, form healthier relationships, overcome challenges and relieve stress. These skills are an essential component of every teen’s learning and lead to a more fulfilling life.
This free event will begin at 7 p.m. Dec. 2 in the auditorium at Glenbard South High School, 23W200 Butterfield Road in Glen Ellyn.
Bracket is the director of the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence and a senior research scientist focusing on the role of emotional intelligence to advance learning, good mental health and school climate.
CPDUs are available for education professionals.
