Permission to feel : unlocking the power of emotions to help our kids, ourselves, and our society thrive
Marc Brackett is a professor at Yale University's Child Study Center and founding director of the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence. In his 25 years as an 'emotion scientist,' he 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 success and well-being. The core of his approach is a legacy from his childhood, from an astute uncle who gave him permission to feel. He was the first adult who managed to see Marc, listen to him, and recognize the suffering, bullying, and abuse he'd endured. And that was the beginning of Marc's awareness that what he was going through was temporary. He wasn't alone, he wasn't stuck on a timeline, and he wasn't 'wrong' to feel scared, isolated, and angry. Now, best of all, he could do something about it.
