The EQ Intervention: Shaping a Self-aware Generation Through Social and Emotional Learning
If anything can be agreed upon in our hyper-partisan world, it’s that people could use better skills for understanding and dealing with emotions, both of themselves and others. That is exactly what this book offers. Although it is directed specifically to an audience of educators, the skills and insights apply in every situation where people interact. The Social and Emotional Learning framework comprises five main parts: recognition of one’s own emotions, (self-awareness); regulation of those emotions (self-regulation); recognition of others’ emotions (social awareness or empathy); regulation of others’ emotions, or relationship skills; and, finally, putting all that together for Responsible Decision Making. The author walks the reader through these steps with illustrative stories that are broken down to examine how each works in the real world, all based on numerous studies and solid science. The stories are interesting and personal, and the book is a quick and engaging read, but for those who want a quicker overview, each chapter ends with a summary in a few bullet points and a set of suggestions for how to implement the chapter’s message. Increasing your Social and Emotional intelligence will improve your relationships in every area of your life; this book gives you the blueprint for how to do it.
