Recognizing, Understanding, Labeling, Expressing, and Regulating (RULER) Training

RULER is an evidence-based approach for integrating social and emotional learning into schools by teaching the skills of emotional intelligence. Decades of research show that these skills are essential to effective teaching and learning, sound decision making, physical and mental health, and success in school and beyond. This approach, from the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence, gives a unique depth and consistency to social and emotional learning that empowers school leaders and teachers to create a genuinely safe space for students to learn and grow.
