The course was outstanding. Many of the techniiques outlined in the course I have been using for years. I was refreshing and I will continue to use these practices in my school leadership capacity.

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.

The course is basically focused on Teachers, so, if you want to learn more about emotions and how to deal with for your own life, I dont' recomend this course.

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.

This was an excellent, easy to follow course that talked about the most basic of things but really gave me suggestions and tools for each step of the process. I love how it focused on us and our emotions as staff members first, and then turned to the kids, which is just what we need to do when someone is triggered-check our own emotions first, and then attend to the issue so you can role model healthy regulation.

Good for everyone, not just teachers.

Course material is scientific, modern, and relevant to almost every situation in one's personal & professional life.

I highly recommend taking this course if you've never studied Emotions & Behaviour, you will 100% learn something new and useful.

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.

I read the book Permission to Feel, but the course helped solidify the key points and takeaways from the book by videos and short readings and articles.

This is a good course and has much to teach on the topic of emotional intelligence. My reasons for taking off one start is that it does not elaborate on RULER - the research-backed approach that Marc has developed to operationalise emotional and social Intelligence. I badly wanted to learn about RULER and for this I need to be an educator and enrol at the Yale Center along with 2 others.

I am a therapist with an individual practice. It looks like there is no way I can learn directly online about RULER. That is very disappointing for me. I really wish they create a separate online course on RULER for individuals like me who are not part of a school

Easily the best course I have come across, wonderfully presented by Marc Brackett and Yale. The course is incredibly insightful, providing useful evidence-based strategies that is applicable both in one's personal life and in the professional setting. Course presentation and delivery is well-executed, with appropriate lengths of the videos - so that learner's focus and attention aren't lost. Shout out to Marc Brackett, who does a great job in presenting the content.

The content is engaging and informative, profound, life-changing and yet - easy to understand, clear and succinct. Valuable resources and strategies are provided throughout, finishing off with weekly reflections that further consolidates the knowledge learnt and provides a great starting point to apply the skills/strategies taught.

I highly recommend this course. In completing this, I left with a better understanding of managing emotions and new strategies/skills to help manage my emotions and of those of my students. Though the topic area may seem well-trodden, anyone who completes the course will have their expectations exceeded and will be beyond satisifed. I guarntee that everyone will have learnt something new, or gain a new/different perspective. It is a highly practical and relevant course, purposefully designed and aimed to equip learners with skills to manage emotions that anyone can benefit from.

Great work from Marc and the Yale team, thoroughly enjoyed the course.

I am very happy to complete this course. I am a Japanese and a school counselor and a clinical psychologist. At elementary schools, junior high schools and high schools, I give lessons of Anger Management (emotional education) to the children, students, teachers and parents. I have been giving lessons of Anger Management for more than 10 years. The elementary school and junior high schools using the text which we made are gradually increasing in Japan. I have been interested in your work before. This time, I wanted to take this course very much. The contents in the each section are the same when I give a lesson. I could say OK to what I have been doing. But I am thinking there are so many things that I want to learn from Yale Center Emotional Intelligence. I would like to keep studying from now on. To tell the truth, it took much time to read and listen to this course' content, looking up the words in the electronic dictionary. Because all English! That's why it took time to complete this course. But I did it! What I learned in this course is very helpful for my work. Thank you very much for all of you. In the future, I would like to visit you at Yale center Emotional Intelligence in the future.

the course is marvellus and i have learnt the sikk to face with different stressful and uncertain times, which is very heipful .

the emotion quadrants,, yelow, red, ble and green impress me most.and the couse also teah me to use the different emotion type to collaborate with others and how to let other's life more effective, such as if we are in the yellow quadrants, we are more suitable to take part in a mindstorm...

And 5 steps in how to deal with stressful moments...

however, because of the tech problem i can not watch the vedio, but thamks to the passage below, i can gain the most part of the content. however, some files i can not open, so i have no idea about the key point.

it is truly that nothing is perfect, i am so appreciated taht can catch the amaing knowlege about the emotion management. thanks to all of the backup workers.

may all of you have a nice day~

Overall, I was impressed with the quality of the course content and the organization of the material. The instructors were knowledgeable and engaging, and their presentation was easy to understand. The course was well-structured and the material was both informative and useful. The exercises were helpful in allowing me to practice the skills and techniques presented in the course. Additionally, the course provided plenty of opportunity for self-reflection and personal growth. All in all, I would highly recommend this course to anyone looking to develop their emotional intelligence and manage their emotions in times of uncertainty and stress.

I recommend this be taught in all schools - staff and students. We all need a detailed guide to understanding emotions we ourselves are going through, and how to manage them whenever they arise - which they do. Then to model that, try to understand others' emotions, and help them navigate and manage them as well. It's a first step to open the door of clear communication, and to melt down the mental and prejudice barriers we have built around ourselves from understanding, celebrating and cherishing others for who they truly are.

Whether you're a teacher, student, or simply a person trying to live a more emotionally aware life, this course has something for you. I took a lot away from this course, and it helped me internally reflect and make plans to change and help myself. It was easy to follow along with the flow of assignments, the work required is very simple, and the quizzes aid as reflections into your personal life and application of the skills you learn in the course. Would definitely recommend it!
