Frequently bought together
Permission to Feel provides a framework for what parents and educators need to learn in order to support children in achieving social, academic, and life success. ― Carmen Fariña, New York City Department of Education
Brackett (Creating Emotionally Literate Classrooms), founding director of the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence and a professor at the Yale Child Study Center, examines how acknowledging one's emotions can create confidence and promote mental health in this provocative, accessible work. While Brackett focuses on educational and child-based applications for his methods, his wise principles can easily be applied to adult situations as well. Readers looking for strategies for responding to stress, particularly in children, will find much guidance in this cogent, welcoming work. ― Publisher's Weekly
Permission to Feel is a deeply insightful and compelling examination of one of the most important but ignored dimensions of the human experience. In his honest, funny, and illuminating way, Marc Brackett helps us to understand how emotions influence our health, performance, and overall well-being, and how we can leverage their power to transform our lives. ― Vivek Murthy, MD, MBA. 19th Surgeon General of the United States
In business, we are often pressured to withhold or suppress emotions, ultimately creating toxic environments and interpersonal conflict. In Permission to Feel, Marc Brackett teaches essential skills and tools for bringing our best selves forward. The results? Enhanced personal and professional outcomes, and healthier and more engaging workplaces. A must-read for every entrepreneur - and their investors. ― Deborah Quazzo, Managing Partner GSV AcceleraTE Fund
We often create a false dichotomy between thinking and feeling. In this dichotomy, thinking is important, strong, and adaptive, but feeling is not. Marc Brackett shows us how emotions-and our ability to feel, understand, and use them-are key to fulfilling our potential. ― Carol Dweck, author of Mindset: The New Psychology of Success and Professor of Psychology, Stanford University

Can't help thinking a lot of this book is an advert for the work that the author does at Yale, speaking engagements and also his co-founded business specialising in workplace emotional intelligence.
Functions well as a summary, but would have loved some more examples and practical advice that are probably contained in workshops / etc.
