I'm not a teacher, but you don't need to become one to enroll. It has thought me so much as a student. Emotional Intelligence is an important life skill, and this course is an amazing starter kit.

This course has changed my life so much and come at a time when I most need it for my personal life as well as my work life. I have learnt so much and with the Action Plans I will be able to follow through with what I have learnt. This was indeed a good course ad it has helped me socially and emotionally to manage my relationships at home and work. Well done Yale. Thank you for helping me to help myself.

The emotional scientist section and the RULER overview are two key components that truly hit home. This course is not difficult but it is extremely impactful! I highly recommend this course to any educator or business person working with others and needing to understand multiple perspectives.

Managing Emotions was so helpful in many areas. Personally I was able to climb over some obstacles that have been pushing me down and felt tethered too. This program also gives insight in many areas along with the readings that are offered. One example of many when a child has a behavior and is acting out throwing things, we are quick to label "Mad" instead we should recognize. "Behavior doesn't equal emotion". When you label the emotion for someone, it is confusing to them and boxes them into something you have labeled them as. Remember their limitations and we are still learning a new vocabulary of words our self. The videos were just enough time, and reflecting our thoughts helped to recognize how, "maybe you are an emotional scientist" This program was done in a way that if you follow it through, you will take something from it, and grow in a positive direction along with helping those that are struggling with their emotions and feelings.

Thank you for giving me this opportunity to learn Managing Emotions in times of Uncertainty & Stress. It works for now and later times.

Really helpful for anyone who interacts with others. I took this course to help with social emotional needs of my students but it's really helping the social emotional needs of my family too!

I feel that this course reaffirms what the school as a whole is trying to do. Agreed that this year has been a crazy one. Who knows what 2021 will bring. If we all remember that each one of us responds differently to any given situation and that none of these reactions are right or wrong but just the way you are able to deal with it. All need to show respect for the others. I believe in the face of adversity we as a school community have been drawn closer together. The teachers are doing an amazing job with the hybrid model of learning and teaching opt out students at the same time. It reminds me of the saying "if you want something done, ask a busy person" GREAT JOB, REALLY ENJOYED THE COURSE

Great insights! Useful material and foot for thought and growth. The tools and strategies provided will definitely play an important role in managing my emotions and interact more effectively with people around me. The RULER, the MOOD METER, the insights like ''behavior does not equal emotion'', emotion management strategies help a lot to reframe mindset, rethink action plans and approach every case as unique.

Many of the ideas discussed and presented are familiar to us, but human brain has to process so much info every day that makes it difficult to remember and apply in daily life circumstances. Reminders are required! Thank you very much for the valuable contribution.

This was an extremely relevant and valuable tool for me as a professional and as a person in general. The concepts that were presented were culturally and chronologically relevant, research-based, authentic, and presented in such a way as to harness the interest of the learners while keeping them wanting more. I think that this may truly be one of the best PDs on SEL I have ever taken.

As we do our best work towards maintaining a positive attitude in most challenging of times, there is much that is outside of our control. Let's consider what we can do to ease our student's stress, to bring well-being and hope into their lives by considering what is in our power to change what is not..

Timely reminder of concepts I know but am lax on applying. Supportive content that further equips me for emotional success in myself and my students. Provides tools for reflection and application.

I follow the course and I have trouble

I am now at the week 8 but numbers of the other week are not checked by your system. I have information telling me that i didn't finish to complete the week when I did all (and everything is check - green mark).

Also I obtain a 100% for a quizz and you continue to ask me to do the work.

At least on some week I only find quizz to practice and I don't see any final quizz

So I'm really lost and I loose time coming back to the work check 3 to 6 times what's wrong.

I don't find any way to communicate with you for this kind of problem.

I'm interested by the certificat so I wonder what is the point if my work is not considerate by the site.

Hope you can give me answers

Relevant and WORTHWHILE!

After finishing this course I want to comment that there are few PD undertakings that I feel have such an immediate and IMPORTANT impact in Education. We are people, we work with people, and we are helping young people. How are we to do this well...especially in a global pandemic? I have been a life long student of education and psychology mostly centered in the arts. We have been engaging in these discussions and topics as arts educators for a long time but without the clarity and direction that this course brings the topic. Finally I feel like there is common language to discuss emoting AND its relevance to the field of education is much more clear and practical - Words that are not commonly connected with a more "subjective" field! Thank you to everyone out there studying social emotional best practices and innovating in this field. Thank you to the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence for leading in bringing this subject from abstract to concrete. I hope that we will make a better world where this is at the center of teaching and learning regardless of discipline, delivery, age, or content.

I​ wish I had had such a caring School System during my career here in Italy. It's been a pleasure to listen to your videos, read your interesting materials and reflecting on my way of dealing with emotions in such a difficult historical time. Grazie!

Excellent course on learning how to handle one's own emotions as well as social situations with peers or students. I absolutely appreciate the RULER approach and want to see it trained in schools and organizations.
