Permission to Feel: A Book About Emotional Intelligence by Marc Brackett

Dec 02, 2021    |   Books, Videos & Podcasts

As early educators, we know that little children often have big feelings. This seems to be especially true for many of the children returning to group care and learning settings after more than a year of COVID.  And, let’s face it– this transition period from lockdown to “near normal”  has brought feelings to the surface for adults as well!

Recently one of Good2Know Network’s partners recommended Permission To Feel, a book about feelings and emotional intelligence written by Dr. Marc Brackett, Founder and Director of the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence and a Professor in the Child Study Center of Yale University.

Permission to Feel integrates psychological research, educational practice, and stories from Dr. Brackett’s life, to help readers gain a better understanding of emotional intelligence. The book explores how children and adults can let go of shame and embarrassment about their feelings and develop skills that will help them navigate emotions. It is a great read for educators, parents, students, and anyone who works with children or is interested in learning more about emotional intelligence.
