Dr. Marc Brackett: Permission To Feel: Unlocking the Power of Emotions to Help Our Kids, Ourselves and Our Society Thrive

October 12, 2021, 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

We have a crisis on our hands, and its victims are our children.”  — Marc Brackett. The mental well-being of young people and adults is shockingly poor. Marc Brackett, author of Permission to Feel, knows why and he knows what we can do.  In his 25 years as an “emotion scientist,” he has developed a remarkably effective plan to improve the lives of young people and adults – a blueprint for understanding our emotions and using them wisely so that they help, rather than hinder, our success and well-being. His prescription for healthy children (and their parents, teachers, and schools) is a system called RULER, a high-impact and fast-effect approach to understanding and mastering emotions. Join us for an evening of insight into developing the strategies and skills of this tested and proven process. This free event is open to the public and anyone can join.
