THE EFFECTS OF AN EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE EDUCATION PROGRAM ON THE EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE OF CHILDREN
Our aim was to research the effect of emotional intelligence education on the emotional intelligence of young children. The sample group were 6-year-old children attending preschool classes (N = 120). A subgroup of 40 students attended a 12-week emotional intelligence program. After 12 weeks the children were measured using the Sullivan Emotional Intelligence Scale (Sullivan, 1999); results showed that an emotional intelligence education program contributed significantly to children's emotional intelligence levels.
