Emotions drive learning, decision-making, creativity, relationships, and health.
At HSFI emotions matter. Emotions drive learning, decision making, creativity, relationships, and health.
In partnership with Yale University’s Center for Emotional Intelligence and Facebook’s InspirED, staff and students are trained in Yale’s RULER social emotional learning curriculum. The Mood Meter is one of the “anchors of Emotional Intelligence” in the RULER program. It helps people develop the core RULER skills: Recognizing, Understanding, Labeling, Expressing, and Regulating emotions. Learning to identify and label emotions is a critical step toward cultivating emotional intelligence. The ultimate goal is to promote self-awareness and self-regulation to equip both students and staff with the necessary skills to understand the full scope of their emotional life.
