The concept of Emotional Intelligence is not new, and as far back as in the1930s, Thorndike was describing social intelligence as the ability to get along with other people.  There is ongoing debate as to whether or not your emotional quotient (EQ) might be more important than your IQ.  Some view emotional intelligence as an array of noncognitive capabilities, competencies, and skills that influence one’s ability to succeed in coping with environmental demands and pressures (Reuven Bar-On).  Emotions are described as involving the subjective experience, the physiological response, and the behavioral response.  We will examine and challenge old views of EI to explore how the skills are closely linked to cognition, and how they can be taught and learned.

In this course, you will learn the four factors of emotional intelligence, along with the five key components and explore ways in which we can measure, develop EI skills, and apply them to your counseling practice.  The integration of SEI into your counseling practice will allow you to assist your clients in developing increased self-awareness and self-management through their recovery process.  Through improvements in insight and self-control, your clients can learn to exercise choice at a heightened level.  By gaining a deeper level of understanding, and the ability to access critical and creative thinking, your clients will demonstrate positive outcomes in their personal and professional lives.  Begin today and learn how incorporating SEI into counseling can improve your practice!
