THE EFFECTS OF AN EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE EDUCATION PROGRAM ON THE EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE OF CHILDREN
Abstract: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.
