Emotional intelligence

Module Overview

Originated by Dr. Sue Barker

Emotional Intelligence is the capability to recognise your own emotions and those of others, discern between different feelings and label them appropriately, use emotional information to guide thinking and behaviour and manage and/or adjust emotions to adapt to environments or achieve your goal(s). Studies have shown that people with high EI have greater mental health, job performance, and leadership skills although no causal relationships have been shown and such findings may be attributable to general intelligence and specific personality traits rather than emotional intelligence as a construct. Markers of EI and methods of developing it have become more widely developed in the past decade. In addition, studies have begun to provide evidence to help characterise the neural mechanisms of emotional intelligence. This module looks at how developing emotional intelligence can be helpful in helping young people to adapt to changing environments and assist in reaching their goals.

We will explore

Our programmes include a range of learning materials to support both teachers and students in the classroom. Content wise, each module is different but some components are common to all to provide assessment tools for teachers and familiar references for students.

This module includes

  • Lesson plan
  • PowerPoint presentation
  • Emotive words handout
  • Animation to support this module
  • Teacher assessment

We believe that some topics are approached more powerfully by bringing in animation. That is why some of the topics have videos to illustrate the learning points
