She is a codeveloper of RULER, an acronym that stands for the skills of emotional intelligence: Recognizing, Understanding, Labeling, Expressing, and Regulating emotions. At the Center, Dr. Stern is a principal investigator for the RULER for Parents project, which aims to increase parent involvement in children’s emotional intelligence education. She also works on High School RULER, adapting the curriculum for older students, and on a project to explore the intersection of self-awareness, emotion, and the arts. In collaboration with Facebook, she created a reporting process for cyberbullying incidents and a help center for bullied children. She is currently analyzing data from the that project to gain a deeper understanding of cyberbullying. Dr. Stern is a licensed psychoanalyst, educator, and author, with over twenty-five years of experience treating individuals, couples, and groups.
