This year we are excited to welcome guest speaker Dr. Marc Brackett. He is the founding Director of the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence and Professor in the Child Study Center at Yale University.

Dr. Brackett's research focuses on the role of emotional intelligence in learning, decision making, relationship quality, and mental health; the measurement of emotional intelligence; best practices for bringing emotional intelligence into schools and organizations; and the influences of emotional intelligence training on student and educator effectiveness, bullying prevention, and school climate.

He is the author, co-author, and editor of over 125 scholarly publications and the developer of two university courses on emotional intelligence. His most recent book is Permission to Feel: Unlocking the Power of Emotions to Help Our Kids, Ourselves, and Our Society Thrive.
