PROJECT

Emotional Intelligence

The proposed project aims at developing soft skills in student facilitators and through them, in their students. The content included emphasize specifically on enhancing emotional intelligence at personal and social level. Just like physical hygiene, emotional hygiene is also important. Unregulated emotions can cause equal or perhaps greater harm than caused by an untreated wound. An adolescent faces difficulty in handling particular emotions whereas an adult passes through a different kind of emotional turmoil. Besides this, the same emotion has different impact on different individuals depending on their perception and reaction. So, it is imperative to identify different emotions and know how to regulate them for positive emotional, mental and social wellbeing.

The talk is a part of the Open Education Design Workshop 2019 event filmed and produced by Videolectures.NET.
