Trainings

Attending a RULER training is the first step for schools (preK-12) looking to implement RULER. Our training institutes focus on building a growth mindset and common language around emotions, skill development in emotional intelligence, and the building and sustaining of positive social and emotional climates where all stakeholders in the school feel empowered to learn, work, and achieve.

RULER Institute at Yale

The RULER Institute is the first step for bringing RULER to a school. The two-day, in-person workshop is designed to equip a small team from each school to lead RULER implementation. We call this team the “RULER Implementation Team.” For school-based RULER Implementation Teams, each team must include at least one school administrator (principal, assistant principal, or dean of students) plus at least two teachers or mental health professionals.
