Overview

Many students who are intellectually capable of succeeding have difficulties with a variety of non-cognitive competencies such as time and stress management, establishing positive relationships, and making wise decisions. They often adopt dysfunctional coping styles that can cripple their academic efforts. Increasingly, one of the missing factors in student success seems to be emotional intelligence. Written specifically for students by recognized authorities in emotional intelligence, this book will help them understand and develop their emotional intelligence in order to enjoy a richer learning experience and superior academic achievement. The Student EQ Edge provides a thorough grounding in what emotional intelligence is, why it is different from one’s intelligence quotient, and how emotional intelligence skills can make a student a “star performer.”

Grounded in the classic work of Dr. Reuven Bar-On, the book discusses each realm of emotional intelligence: The Intrapersonal Realm: self-awareness, assertiveness, and independence; The Interpersonal Realm: empathy and social responsibility; The Adaptability Realm: problem solving, flexibility, and decision making; The Stress Management Realm: stress tolerance and impulse control; and The General Mood Realm: happiness and optimism. The book helps students move from understanding of the concepts to action through reflection and discussion questions. A perfect companion is The Student EQ Edge: Student Workbook.

What People Are Saying

From the Publisher
“The perfect trilogy in one package! Stein, Book, and Kanoy have taken emotional intelligence (EI) from the laboratory of theory and scientific research and created a practical, relevant, and engaging program for students in secondary and postsecondary settings. Using the revised Bar-On EI model, this hands-on and user-friendly program includes the book, student workbook, and facilitation and activity guide and is backed by a wealth of practical experience and supporting studies. It has importance, meaning, and direct relevance to all students. As B. F. Skinner once asked, ‘What will the world be like in 50 years?’ The Student EQ Edge gives promise to finding the best answer.” —Don Saklofske, professor, Psychology Department, Western University
