Permission to Feel: Unlocking the Power of Emotions to Help Our Kids, Ourselves, and Our Society Thrive
In his 25 years as an emotion scientist, Marc Brackett, Ph.D., author of the insightful and compelling new book Permission to Feel: Unlocking the Power of Emotions to Help Our Kids, Ourselves, and Our Society Thrive, has developed a remarkably effective plan to improve the lives of children and adults – a blueprint for understanding our emotions and using them wisely so that they help, rather than hinder, our success and well-being. He has led large research teams to investigate the roots of emotional 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 that has already transformed thousands of schools nationwide. RULER has been proven to reduce stress and burnout, improve school climate, and enhance academic achievement.
Carol Dweck, Ph.D. (FAN ’11 and ’14) notes: “We often create a false dichotomy between thinking and feeling. In this dichotomy, thinking is important, strong, and adaptive, but feeling is not. Marc Brackett shows us how emotions – and our ability to feel, understand, and use them – are key to fulfilling our potential.”
