There is ample evidence now to suggest that emotional intelligence is more powerful than intelligence on its own. This program provides teachers with a basic understanding of what emotional intelligence is and how it can be utilised in the classroom to generate a positive learning environment. We focus on why schools are ideal settings in which to enhance the promotion of emotional intelligence and take a look at how children and adolescents express emotions. It will also provide specific ideas that teachers can incorporate in their classes to promote better emotional understanding, which forms the basis for all relationships both in school and beyond. Featuring Dr Karen Hansen from the Brain Research Institute, and numerous real-life examples, this is a thought-provoking and information-packed resource for teachers.
