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.

In-person trainings at Yale have been moved online due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Please add your school team’s information to our in-person RULER Institute waitlist. We will email you an application when in-person trainings at Yale become available.

Regional RULER Institute

Regional trainings are offered if 25 or more schools within a district or region show interest in adopting RULER. The two-day, in-person workshop is designed to equip a small team from each school to lead RULER implementation. A designated liaison from your district or region will work with a RULER training coordinator from the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence to set up the regional RULER training in your area.

All in-person trainings have been temporarily moved online due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Please consider attending our RULER Institute Online
