Emotional Intelligence:
Unlocking the Power of Emotions​
Tues., Jan 25; 7pm-8:15pm
Event details & registration HERE
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.*****

In this talk, she will explore the science of how loneliness affects health and share practical tips for building supportive relationships and staying connected

Tues., Jan. 25; 6:00 – 7:30 pm
Event Details & Registration HERE

Join our interactive workshop on building school-parent partnerships in San Mateo County to promote social-emotional learning (SEL) and a positive school climate.

Parents know how important strong social-emotional skills and a positive school climate are for kids to be engaged learners and to become healthy, happy adults. But, what can schools and parents do to create supportive, safe environments on-campus and at-home? How can we work together to promote SEL skills among students, teachers, and ourselves? And what does local survey data show about the state of school climate in San Mateo County schools?
