Training Description

Academic research and real-life experience prove beyond doubt that a high Intelligence Quotient (IQ) will only take you so far. A high EQ (Emotional Quotient), which measures Emotional Intelligence, ultimately leads to success. When people develop their emotional intelligence they not only have far greater control over their own emotions, they are also better able to perceive the emotions of other people, and build strong, effective relationships with them. This engaging and stimulating training puts the theory of emotional intelligence into practice, giving participants an opportunity to explore and understand better their own emotions and try out different ways of building rapport and connecting with foster and/or system involved youth who may live in out of home care. Participants will leave with knowledge and skills that will make them more effective in supporting the development of emotional intelligence in system involved regardless of their role. Participants will learn the core skills required to practice emotional intelligence: self-management, self-awareness, self-regulation, self-motivation and empathy.
