Sunday Platform – Robin Stern: Emotional Intelligence and Ethical Decision Making

February 23, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

The skills of emotional intelligence matter for our ability to focus our attention, make sound decisions, establish and maintain healthy relationships and physical and mental health. In this interactive talk participants will learn the skills and how they also relate to living an ethical life day to day.

She is a licensed psychoanalyst with 30 years of experience treating individuals, couples and families. Robin is the co-developer of RULER (an acronym for the five key emotion skills of recognizing, understanding, labeling, expressing, and regulating emotions) an evidence-based approach to social and emotional learning that has been adopted by over 1,500 public, charter, and private pre-school to high schools across the United States and in other countries.

Robin is also a founding member of the Woodhull Institute for Ethical Leadership, where she spent 15 years creating and facilitating professional development programs for aspiring women leaders.

Robin is a member of the Emotional Intelligence Consortium for Research in Emotional Intelligence, is the Goodwill Ambassador for UN Women for Peace Association and serves on the board of Crisis Text Line, I’ll Go First, Think Equal and HerWisdom.

Sunday Platform is our most important and long-standing community event. These gatherings educate, stimulate personal growth, inspire reflection and action, and strengthen our community. Sunday meetings usually begin with music, followed by greetings and a talk given by a Society Leader, member, or guest.  Platforms cover a variety of topics that reflect current events, pressing social issues, and Ethical Culture philosophy. A collection basket is passed and money is shared between the Society and a charity selected for that day.  While contributions are always appreciated, Sunday meetings are free and open to the public.  Each Sunday meeting is followed by a luncheon and social hour.
