Emotional Intelligence

Course summary

Lisbon, Portugal

7 days

Erasmus+ KA1


Emotional intelligence is the ability to understand, use, and manage one´s own emotions in positive ways to relieve stress, communicate effectively, empathize with others, overcome challenges and defuse conflict.

This competence has a surprisingly powerful effect on our lives, from our capacity to foster long-term relationships with friends to whether we’re able to succeed in school.

Managing our emotions as well as understanding others is vital when interacting within both the professional day-to-day with colleagues, students, parents and society.

Since 2020 we have been facing a global pandemic which caused a huge intrusion in all relationships. And between teachers and students too. While teaching was already a challenging profession, COVID-19 has pushed aside some of the heartwarming, relational positives of teaching and replaced them with stress and e-learning teaching.
