Please join NYC-Parents in Action as we learn from one of the foremost experts in Emotional Intelligence, Marc Brackett, Ph.D. Dr. Brackett is founding director of the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence and professor in the Child Study Center at Yale University. His presentation will focus on innovative strategies for developing and harnessing the power of emotional intelligence in our children.
Dr. Brackett is the lead developer of RULER, an evidence-based approach to social and emotional learning that has been adopted by thousands of schools. RULER applies a “hard science” approach to teaching what have historically been called “soft skills:” recognizing, understanding, labeling, expressing, and regulating emotion. In his talk, he also will expound upon his most recent book, Permission to Feel, which uses science and storytelling to inspire a new mindset around the value of emotions and how to unlock their power in adults and children.

Parents Talking to Parents
This discussion is not a Parent Forum and there will not be members of the faculty attending.
“Parent Talks” are facilitated discussion groups dedicated to an individual grade. The talks are led by NYC-Parents in Action (PIA). Each year PIA coordinates over 250 Parent Talk facilitated meetings in participating New York City area Independent Schools.
Parent Talk Facilitated Discussion Groups provide an opportunity for parents in the same grade level to come together to talk about a variety of issues they face as parents. Our meeting will be spent discussing topics important to and generated by us. Subjects at Parent Talks can range from bedtimes, television and friends in the lower grades, to safety in the streets and online, unsupervised parties and experimentation with alcohol in the upper grades – and everything in between. Any topic apart from changing school policy is fair game. Parents in Action Facilitators will be there to guide our discussion. If there’s an issue you’d like to hear discussed, please reach out to one of your parent reps so they can forward it anonymously to the PIA Facilitators.
NYC-Parents in Action is an independent, not-for-profit organization that, since 1980, has encouraged communication between parents and children and among parents.
Please note that this event is for parents only.
