Permission to Feel Book Club

We had such a great time and learned so much from our virtual Permission to Feel Book Club and Permiso Para Sentir Club del Libro in the fall that we decided to do it again!

Join BStrong Together as we read Permission to Feel (and the Spanish version Permiso Para Sentir) by Yale University Professor and Director of the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence, Marc Brackett, PhD.

Learn how to become an emotion scientist, able to recognize understand, label, express, and regulate your emotions through an evidence-based approach to emotional intelligence leading to greater well-being for you and your family.
