    Course Outlines

    The course aims to provide students with basic theoretical knowledge of emotional intelligence and skills for implementing programs aimed at its development. In particular, they should be able to:

    • 6. Describe modern models for the interpretation of emotional intelligence (e.g., models of Goleman, Bar-On, Mayer, Salovey, & Caruso, Petrides, etc.)
    • 7. Choose the appropriate psychometric  tools for measuring emotional intelligence
    • 8. Combine theoretical approaches and psychometric tools to design, implement and / or evaluate programs for the development of emotional intelligence.
    • synthesize and organize emotional intelligence skills to propose new applications of the concept to education or work (eg emotional and social skills training programs)
    • consider and differentiate factors that are likely to affect (positively or negatively) the success of programs or applications of emotional intelligence

    The course offers theoretical knowledge and opportunities for practicing the applications of emotional intelligence on education and work. In particular, the theoretical part describes the contemporary models for the interpretation of emotional intelligence (eg, the models of Goleman, Bar-On, Mayer, Salovey, & Caruso, Petrides, etc.) and the psychometric tools that have been developed to measure it. It discusses the critique of the concept of emotional intelligence as well as its relationships with factors of individual differences (such as age and gender), with other psychological concepts (such as cognitive intelligence and personality), with various aspects of human behavior (such as academic performance and interpersonal relationships), etc.

    In the practical part, students have the opportunity to study and apply some programs aiming at developing emotional intelligence skills in the context of child or/and adult education and the workplace. The principles, conditions, and steps of designing and implementing such programs are taught and examples of programs implemented internationally but also in our country are given. Finally, the students practice themselves in implementing such programs.
