This book highlights current knowledge, best practices, new opportunities, and difficult challenges associated with promoting emotional intelligence (EI) and social-emotional learning (SEL) in educational settings. The volume provides analyses of contemporary EI theories and measurement tools, common principles and barriers in effective EI and SEL programming, typical and atypical developmental considerations, and higher-level institutional and policy implications. It also addresses common critiques of the relevance of EI and discusses the need for greater awareness of sociocultural contexts in assessing and nurturing EI skills. Chapters provide examples of effective EI and SEL programs in pre-school, secondary school, and university contexts, and explore innovative applications of EI such as bullying prevention and athletic training. In addition, chapters explore the implications of EI in postsecondary, professional, and occupational settings, with topics ranging from college success and youth career readiness to EI training for future educators and organizational leaders. Topics featured in this book include:Ability and trait EI and their role in coping with stress, academic attainment, sports performance, and career readiness. Implications of preschoolers' emotional competence for future success in the classroom. Understanding EI in individuals with exceptionalities. Applications of school-based EI and SEL programs in North America and Europe. Policy recommendations for social-emotional development in schools, colleges and universities. Developing emotional, social, and cognitive competencies in managers during an MBA program. Emotional intelligence training for teachers. Cross-cultural perspective on EI and emotions. Emotional Intelligence in Education is a must-have resource for researchers, professionals, and policymakers as well as graduate students across such disciplines as child and school psychology, social work, and education policy.

"This handbook is designed for use by practicing professionals who are charged with accommodating the needs of students having emotional and behavioral disorders and problems within the context of schooling. This handbook consists of 32 chapters and is divided into six sections: (1) foundations, (2) screening, performance monitoring, and assessment, (3) interventions targeting specific disorders, settings and/or developmental levels, (4) generic intervention approaches, (5) early intervention, and (6) research. The editors view the book as a compendium of accessible best practices that, if practitioners adopt and apply with high levels of treatment integrity, will produce a strong impact on the emotional and behavioral problems that challenge the school success of EBD students"--Provided by publisher.

"This volume focuses on social and emotional learning (SEL) from a variety of perspectives. The goal of the volume is to offer a clear framing of SEL in relation to other related OST concepts and initiatives. SEL has gained popularity as a concept in recent years and there remains confusion as well as great interest in the meaning and implementation of SEL in out-of-school-time (OST). Policymakers, researchers, and practitioners are pursuing work related to SEL in OST and this volume offes an opportunity to share that work by: - Defining and explaining SEL in a variety of out of school contexts and highlighting opportunities for integration and alignment with other fields (e.g., formal education) - Clarifying the language and framework confusion and honoring the field's foundation in thinking about social and emotional development through high quality youth development practice - Sharing information about current trends and new developments and how that work is shaping the field across the developmental continuum - Making the research to practice connection by including in each chapter foundational research on the topic, evidence of effective efforts, and practical implications - Offering recommendations for researchers, practitioners, and policymakers related to SEL in OST settings"--

This book includes papers written by teachers and how they engage holistic education in their classrooms. The papers come from a course taught by Jack Miller at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education at the University of Toronto entitled The Holistic Curriculum. This is a rich and diverse collection of papers showing how holistic education can be brought into public education despite the pressures of testing and other accountability measures. Although most of the teachers teach in public schools there are also examples from teachers working in private and post secondary settings. This book can inspire other teachers who are looking for ways to teach the whole person in a more connected manner.

A popular name for our era perpetuates misperceptions about humans and nature

In the last two and a half decades, the concept of Emotional Intelligence has not only gained acceptance in the scientific community, but exploded all over the place, becoming a popular term used (and abused) by everyone. As the concept matured, two things happened: On one hand, more and more empirical evidence supported the concept's applicability in a broad range of contexts and settings. On the other hand, the evidence put the early expectation of the concept in perspective, humbling pioneering claims of EI being the concept accounting for everything that traditional concepts (like intellig.
