Synthesizing the latest research and theory with compelling narratives and case vignettes, this book explores the development of emotional competence in school-age children and young adolescents. Saarni examines the formation of eight key emotional skills in relation to processes of self-understanding, socialization, and cognitive growth. The cultural and gender context of emotional experience is emphasized, and the role of moral disposition and other individual differences is considered. Tracing the connections between emotional competence, interpersonal relationships, and resilience in the face of stress, the book also explores why and what happens when development is delayed.

This book is for teachers of children aged four-eight years. It shows how teachers can collaborate with parents in addressing children's educational and emotional needs. The author presents a variety of classroom management strategies, which teachers can choose from to strengthen children's social and academic competence. She believes that children's emotional literacy is as important as academic literacy. The book shows how teachers can set up individualized programmes which address the special social and emotional needs of children at particular risk with social and academic problems, because of problems such as learning difficulties, hyperactivity, impulsivity, attention deficit disorder, language and reading delays and aggressive behaviour. The author shows how teachers can integrate individualized interventions for such children in the mainstream classroom, while enhancing the social competence of all their students. Teachers understand that just as a child's cognitive competence is important for their ability to learn so too does a child's social competence and emotional security affect their ability to learn. This book will support teachers in developing social competence and emotional well- being in all children. Based on the empirically validated" Dinosaur Social Skills and Problem-solving Curriculum," this book emphasizes the management of hyperactive, inattentive and aggressive children. It includes practical scripts, games, activities, pictures and circle time role-plays and plans for use with children 4-8 years. Carolyn Webster-Stratton is an educational psychologist who for twenty years has been developing and evaluating interventions to help children with behaviour problems. She is the author of the well-known parent book: The Incredible Years: A Trouble-Shooting Guide for Parents fo Young Children (Ages 3-8 Years).

'What is the use to reach the moon if we cannot overcome the chasm that separates us from ourselves? This is the most important expedition and without it, all others are useless.' (Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, French writer and pilot (1900–1944) To recognize emotions and to keep a respectful manner with them is a skill of every single human, which should not be underestimated. Emotional competence plays an important - maybe even the most significant – role on the way to personal development, like Antoine de Saint-Exupery already put it to the point. Phsychotherapists talk about humans to be threatened by alienation from themselves due to a lack of self-perception and an overload of external stimuli. The inner world, the world of emotions and needs, runs the risk of being neglected. Futurologists think that values like empathy and emotions will be more requested than ever henceforward. Psychologists realize that the availability of emotional competence is the key which unlocks the door on the way to all other social competences. In this book you will learn about the importance of emotional competence for your personal, professional and private success. It is the ideal manual for everybody who is ready to start out for one’s own fountain of success. You get answers to following questions: – What is emotional competence exactly? – How can emotional competence can promote personal, professional and private success? – Which possibilities and methods exist to promote and develop emotional competence for oneself?

Building Teachers Emotional Competence

Further, emotions have powerful consequences for teachers themselves. They affect teachers' well-being, self-efficacy, and ultimately whether teachers remain in the profession or not.

Classrooms are complex entities, where the emotions of students and teachers interact to influence learning, relationships, and students' social emotional development. Teachers' understanding of emotional processes within the classroom is critical to effective teaching, promotion of healthy child development, and attaining desired learning outcomes. Further, emotions have powerful consequences for teachers themselves. They affect teachers' well-being, self-efficacy, and ultimately whether teachers remain in the profession or not. Therefore, teachers need skills to recognize and respond to emotional experiences in the classroom. In the present research project a set of emotional competences relevant to educational practices were developed. These competencies include awareness of one's own experience, capacity for effective self-regulation, knowledge of emotional transmission, and maintenance of emotional well-being. In addition, there are competencies related to understanding emotions in systemic and relational contexts, utilizing emotions to promote learning, recognizing and responding to emotions in students, and building students' emotional competence.This research project further offers a conceptual model of training of emotional competencies to preservice teachers by employing a transactional, process-based approach. The transactional aspect of the model emphasizes that emotions emerge as a result of interpersonal transactions in the classroom informed by teachers' and students' personal histories and experiences. The process-oriented aspect emphasizes that teachers must develop an understanding of how and why emotions emerge through an increased awareness of self, emotional experiences and expression in self and others, as well as the individual goals that pervade the classroom. The training model provides a rational for each emotional competency, an illustrative example that describes the competency in practice, and means for instilling the competency in pre-service teachers.

During the early stages of their careers, leaders tend to focus on developing their technical and analytical skills, paying little attention to their capacity to recognize and manage their own emotions and those of others. This can hurt them later in their careers. But emotional competence can be nurtured, and although formal programs are a good starting point, learning from everyday opportunities at work is most effective.

Variations in childhood development are nowhere more conspicuous or important than in the development and expression of emotions. A child's capacity to understand another's feelings, to experience guilt or shame, to manipulate others emotionally, to anticipate the response of parents to displays of anger of distress, to exercise emotional control?all of these are aspects of socioemotional development. A concern with it is reflected in the efforts of researchers to understand the long-term consequences of the parent-infant attachment, the effects of maltreatment on young children, the influence of congenital disorders on their social and emotional functioning, and the origins of depression. Thus the topic of socioemotionalødevelopment has far-reaching and fascinating applications to everyday life, as the essays in this volume reveal. In Socioemotional Development leading scholars approach the topic from diverse perspectives, summarizing findings and discussing original research. They also address a number of broad developmental concerns: What are the lasting effects of early influence? What can account for the long-term consistency of individual characteristics? What are the origins of psychological disorders? To what extent is emotional experience socially constructed? How does biology affect emotion? The contributors and their works are Carol Z. Malatesta, ?The Role of Emotions in the Development and Organization of Personality?; Inge Bretherton, ?Open Communication and Internal Working Models: Their Role in the Development of Attachment Relationships?; Carolyn Saarni, ?Emotional Competence: How Emotions and Relationships Become Integrated?: Carolyn Zahn-Waxler and Grazyna Kochanska, ?The Origins of Guilt?; Dante Cicchetti, ?The Organization and Coherence of Socioemotional, Cognitive, and Representational Development: Illustrations through a Developmental Psychopathology Perspective on Down's Syndrome and Child Maltreatment.?

Our increasingly globalized society demands a higher level of sophistication when working cross-culturally and internationally in local, state, and federal governments; tribal corporations; and nonprofit organizations. Cultural Competence for Public Managers offers guidance on how to become a leader in developing cultural competence in your organization. It provides a conceptual foundation and successful examples for developing cultural competence, including competencies for international collaborations. The authors clearly define terms and provide their own cultural competence model that will add significantly to the current field. They describe the rapidly changing worldwide demographics that are bringing new cultures into many countries and societies. They also examine the issues that culturally diverse landscapes create in the United States, Asia, Europe, Africa, and Latin America, highlighting the differences between assimilationist and the multicultural viewpoints. Drawing on a wide range of examples from universities; local, state, and federal governments; health care service providers; and nonprofit organizations, the book illustrates management practices that are then extended into the relevant cultural context. It also includes examples of cultural missteps and cultural competencies that have worked in practice. Written in an accessible format and style, the book provides practical and useful standards and performance measures, proven coaching and mentoring guides, as well as templates, checklists, exercises, and guidelines. It includes a DVD with coaching guides, checklists. Organized thematically, the book defines the scope of cultural competencies, highlights best practices, and describes variations in responsibility for administering cultural competence for executives, managers, supervisors, and employees.

Few areas have witnessed the type of growth we have seen in the affective sciences in the past decades. Across psychology, philosophy, economics, and neuroscience, there has been an explosion of interest in the topic of emotion and affect. Comprehensive, authoritative, up-to-date, and easy-to-use, the new Oxford Companion to Emotion and the Affective Sciences is an indispensable resource for all who wish to find out about theories, concepts, methods, and research findings in this rapidly growing interdisciplinary field - one that brings together, amongst others, psychologists, neuroscientists, social scientists, philosophers, and historians. Organized by alphabetical entries, and presenting brief definitions, concise overviews, and encyclopaedic articles (all with extensive references to relevant publications), this Companion lends itself to casual browsing by non-specialists interested in the fascinating phenomena of emotions, moods, affect disorders, and personality as well as to focused search for pertinent information by students and established scholars in the field. Not only does the book provide entries on affective phenomena, but also on their neural underpinnings, their cognitive antecedents and the associated responses in physiological systems, facial, vocal, and bodily expressions, and action tendencies. Numerous entries also consider the role of emotion in society and social behavior, as well as in cognitive processes such as those critical for perception, attention, memory, judgement and decision-making. The volume has been edited by a group of internationally leading authorities in the respective disciplines consisting of two editors (David Sander and Klaus Scherer) as well as group of 11 associate editors (John T. Cacioppo, Tim Dalgleish, Robert Dantzer, Richard J. Davidson, Ronald B. de Sousa, Phoebe C. Ellsworth, Nico Frijda, George Loewenstein, Paula M. Niedenthal, Peter Salovey, and Richard A. Shweder). The members of the editorial board have commissioned and reviewed contributions from major experts on specific topics. In addition to comprehensive coverage of technical terms and fundamental issues, the volume also highlights current debates that inform the ongoing research process. In addition, the Companion contains a wealth of material on the role of emotion in applied domains such as economic behaviour, music and arts, work and organizational behaviour, family interactions and group dynamics, religion, law and justice, and societal change. Highly accessible and wide-ranging, this book is a vital resource for scientists, students, and professionals eager to obtain a rapid, conclusive overview on central terms and topics and anyone wanting to learn more about the mechanisms underlying the emotions dominating many aspects of our lives.

Do you have what it takes to succeed in your career? The secret of success is not what they taught you in school. What matters most is not IQ, not a business school degree, not even technical know-how or years of expertise. The single most important factor in job performance and advancement is emotional intelligence. Emotional intelligence is actually a set of skills that anyone can acquire, and in this practical guide, Daniel Goleman identifies them, explains their importance, and shows how they can be fostered. For leaders, emotional intelligence is almost 90 percent of what sets stars apart from the mediocre. As Goleman documents, it's the essential ingredient for reaching and staying at the top in any field, even in high-tech careers. And organizations that learn to operate in emotionally intelligent ways are the companies that will remain vital and dynamic in the competitive marketplace of today—and the future.
