Overview

Educating People To Be Emotionally Intelligent

Daniel Goleman, the literary catalyst for worldwide interest in emotional intelligence, sets the stage for this groundbreaking book in his foreword explaining its landmark importance. People can be educated to be more emotionally intelligent, and this particular type of education takes place through a specific type of parenting at home, formal education at school, and training and coaching at work. As a result of this education, extensively described in this comprehensive book, people's lives can be improved; they can become more effective, productive and content in what they do. Some of the best known researchers, professors and practitioners worldwide team up in this work to recognize and reflect the rapidly growing global interest in scientifically-based applications of emotional intelligence in education, to show readers the diverse applications of EI, and to guide them in applying what is known about this topic. The breadth of coverage, array of experts, international scope and clear, practical tone of this book will appeal to parents, educators, psychologists, counselors, trainers, and corporate coaches, mental health and human resource practitioners and healthcare providers.

Parents and educators need to perform their caregiving roles and teach with emotional intelligence if children are to develop the skills and discernment needed to cope with the complexities of an increasingly globalized world. Workplaces that apply emotional intelligence are more pleasant places in which to work, provide a more fulfilling experience for employees and are, in the end, more productive organizations. Emotional intelligence can be developed by most individuals to increase performance in many areas of life. And a growing body of evidence indicates EI skills may improve physical health, as well as mental health. This book will become a benchmark for future researchers and practitioners.

What People are Saying About This

Richard D. Roberts

"The contributors to this volume are leading experts in the fields of affect, learning, psychological methods, education, industrial organizational psychology, and mental health. This book will prove to be a valuable resource for students, scientists, and practitioners alike as it applies the concept of EI in educational and organizational areas, unveils practical issues and research topics currently dominating the field, and highlights the great potential of emotional intelligence."

James P. Comer

"The focus on cognitive development in the interest of improving test scores has dangerously tilted our attention away from emotional and social development. Hopefully this very important book will begin to restore the balance. It will not only help most people understand how healthy child and adolescent development prepares the young for success in school and in life, but also help many understand how to apply emotional and social development principles to all aspects of the child's life; indeed to adult and institutional life as well."

James P. Comer, Maurice Falk Professor of Child Psychiatry at Yale Child Study Center and Associate Dean of the Yale University School of Medicine

Cary Cherniss

"Two of the most pressing questions confronting the field of emotional intelligence today are, Can we help people to become more emotionally intelligent? And if we can, what are the best approaches? This book helps answer those questions and provides the most comprehensive overview to date of what we know about the development of emotional and social competence in children, adolescents, and adults. As such, it is a welcome addition to the growing body of writing on emotional intelligence and related concepts."

"Emotional intelligence is at the root of a healthy family, society and world. It has been the missing piece in solving the problems of school dropout, violence, war, depression, and healthy choices in work and life. Whether you are a parent, teacher, corporate coach, healthcare professional or policy maker, this book will become a must for your library. It provides tools for helping your friendships, family, school, business or government to blossom."

Eileen Rockefeller Growald, co-founder of CASEL, the Collaborative for Academic, Social and Emotional Learning

Norman Amundson

"I am particularly impressed by the way in which emotional intelligence has been explored and articulated in the edited book Educating People to Be Emotionally Intelligent. The authors lay a foundation by defining terms and describing the wide range of empirical support for both the concept and for emotional intelligence training. Building on this foundation, the authors go on to illustrate how emotional intelligence can be applied with different age levels and in a variety of different settings (schools, community training, organizations, mental health and psychotherapy).This book will be of considerable interest to theoreticians and practitioners in many different settings."
