Brackett’s Emotional Intelligence presentation slides

Notes on Brackett’s Mood Meter

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.
