The RULER Institute

The RULER Institute: Creating Emotionally Intelligent Schools training is offered periodically throughout the year at Yale University, online, and regionally. This training is tailored to schools interested in implementing RULER. Each school identifies a small team including one school leader (principal or assistant principal) and two educators or mental health professionals to attend. This team is responsible for training the remaining faculty and staff at their school on the RULER approach.

Regional trainings also are offered if 25 or more schools within a district or region show interest in adopting RULER. You may contact us at if you would like to discuss the possibility of bringing a RULER training to your district or region.
