Illinois Administrators’ Academy #1374:  Implementing Social and Emotional Learning System-wide to Improve Student Achievement


*Marc Brackett, Ph.D., author of Permission To Feel, is the founding director of the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence and a professor in the Child Study Center, Yale School of Medicine at Yale University. His grant-funded research focuses on: (1) the role of emotions and emotional intelligence in learning, decision making, creativity, relationship quality, and mental health; (2) the measurement of emotional intelligence; and (3) the influence of emotional intelligence training on children’s and adults’ health, performance, and workplace performance and climate. He also is a distinguished scientist on the National Commission on Social, Emotional, and Academic Development and on the board of directors for the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL). Marc 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-school through high schools across the United States and in other countries, including Australia, China, England, Italy, Mexico, and Spain. Marc regularly consults with large companies on best practices for integrating the principles of emotional intelligence into training and product design. He is co-founder of Oji Life Lab, a corporate learning firm that develops innovative digital learning systems for emotional intelligence. Marc speaks to tens of thousands of people each year and has been the keynote speaker at over 500 conferences around the world, including the White House, U.S. Departments of Education, Justice, and Defense, the Surgeon General’s office, the New York Times, Microsoft, Google, Facebook, Twitter, ASU-GSV, the Aspen Institute, as well as dozens of education conferences.


How are you feeling? How would you like to feel? Have you been riding a rollercoaster ride of emotions over the last year?

As leaders in our schools, we must take care of our own well-being so that we can both show up as our best selves for our colleagues and students and preserve our own mental and physical health. In this workshop, Dr. Brackett will share research-based strategies to help school leaders (1) manage their own emotions and (2) support educators in building culturally responsive approaches in managing their own and their students’ emotions. In addition, Dr. Brackett will describe recent large-scale studies on the emotional lives of children and adults, including the implications for leading, teaching, and learning. Participants will learn about the systemic, evidence-based approach to social and emotional learning developed at Yale that has been adopted by over 3,000 schools across the globe.

Join us for a powerful day of learning on this timely topic! Obtain the tools you can immediately apply to developing your own emotional intelligence in order to enhance your personal and professional success and systemic change in your school.







Registrants who select the add-on book option will receive a copy of Permission to Feel for an additional cost of $20. Books will be mailed to all participants’ school address prior to the workshop.
