Permission To Feel
“I cannot recommend Permission To Feel enough… practical, tactical, actionable. My favorite kind of book. I just loved it.” – BRENÉ BROWN
Permission to Feel (Celadon/Macmillan) inspires a new mindset around the power of emotions to transform our lives. Using science, passion, and lively storytelling, this book serves as a guide for understanding our own and others’ emotions, as well as provides innovative strategies for developing emotional intelligence in adults and children so that emotions help, rather than hinder, our success and well-being.
“More than any other book on human feelings, Permission To Feel integrates psychological research, educational practice, and compelling stories, including Marc Brackett’s own life experiences, to make emotional intelligence come alive. This is one book that leaders, educators, parents, students, and researchers will all find valuable… and fun to read.”
