Unlocking the Power of Emotions

Free for member school parents and for educators from member and non-member schools. Registration closes two hours before the start of this event or when maximum registration is reached.

As we continue to navigate this post-pandemic life our emotions can serve as key sign-posts for developing strategies to better manage the stress and uncertainty of what comes next. Tapping into our emotions and naming them can help us make better decisions, build stronger relationships, perform better academically and professionally and improve our health. In this talk Dr. Brackett will discuss how giving our children and ourselves permission to feel our feelings and name them can increase our ability to regulate tough emotions using tools such as the “mood meter” and “meta moment” to be our best selves in addressing day to day stressors.
