RULER and Emotional Intelligence

Redding and Easton parents are invited to attend this Weston event.

A Presentation by Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence
Weston Middle School Library
24 School Road, Weston CT
February 28, 2018
6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
(Inclement weather make-up date March 7, 2018)
Presented by Yale Parent RULER staff Kathryn Lee and Madeline Chafee

Emotions matter! Our emotions impact our attention, memory, learning, decision making, relationships, and physical and mental health.

Family life is the first place we learn to recognize, understand and manage our emotions. How can we, as parents, provide our children with the experiences that they will need to make sense of their feelings and the feelings of others? How can we demonstrate the importance of ‘choice’ when responding to our own feelings and the feelings of others?

Join us for an interactive workshop to learn about how our school is working to create a positive emotional climate for learning and developing the social and emotional skills of our school leaders, teachers and students. Family members will learn about the science of emotional intelligence and how we are applying the skills of emotional intelligence in our school with RULER. You’ll learn how to use emotional intelligence to help build trusting relationships at home while developing skills that will serve your child for a lifetime.
