Emotions matter. They influence our thinking, decisions, relationships, health, and everyday effectiveness. In this highly interactive presentation, participants will learn about the ability model of emotional intelligence, including what emotional intelligence predicts about people's lives. Our Center’s evidence-based approach to teaching emotional intelligence in schools, RULER, also will be highlighted. RULER involves training for students, teachers, leaders, and families, and has been adopted by over 1000 schools around the world.
