How much better would it be if children and teenagers understood and managed their emotions rather than bottling them up or acting out? Imagine if the young people you are responsible for could always curb their instincts, show empathy and think about how their actions might affect others.

These abilities all come under the umbrella of emotional intelligence (EI).

What is Emotional Intelligence?

The idea of emotional intelligence didn’t take off until the 1990s. American Professors Jack Mayor and Peter Salovey coined the term in 1990, defining emotional intelligence as, ‘The ability to monitor one’s own and others’ feelings and emotions, to discriminate among them and to use this information to guide one’s thinkings and actions.’

Emotional intelligence has been associated with many different positive outcomes including strong leadership skills, positivity and self-confidence. Even better, there is evidence supporting the belief that emotional intelligence can be learned.

Developing emotional intelligence

The sooner young people develop their emotional intelligence, the richer their rewards will be. Our emotional intelligence workshops will help them with:

  • Understanding their emotions
  • Reading emotions in others
  • Seeing other people’s points of view
  • Using positive language
  • Accepting themselves
  • Reframing situations
  • Understanding what makes them happy

Aspects of Emotional Intelligence

Like general intelligence, emotional intelligence includes a range of different abilities. These abilities can be measured using various types of test including the Mayer-Salovey-Caruso Emotional Intelligence Test (MSCEIT) and the Bar-on EQ-i test.

The MSCEIT test divides emotional intelligence into four branches, as follows:

  • Perceiving emotion
  • Using feelings to help thinking
  • Understanding emotions
  • Managing emotions

The Bar-on test divides emotional intelligence into five areas, as follows:

  • Intrapersonal (e.g. self-belief, assertiveness, emotional awareness)
  • Interpersonal (e.g. relationships, empathy, social skills)
  • Stress management
  • Adaptability
  • Mood

In both tests, participants answer over 100 questions with each one linked to one or more of the above-mentioned areas. After the test, they will get both an overall score plus individual scores for each of the various different areas or branches. While the standard tests are designed for adults and older teenagers, there are variations available that have been designed for younger teens.

As young people are still developing socially and psychologically, their EQ scores will tend to increase over time. Interventions such as 2020 Dreams Emotional Intelligence Workshops can accelerate this process, benefiting both the child and the school, group or institution as a whole.

2020 Dreams Emotional Intelligence Workshops

Our 2020 Dreams Emotional Intelligence workshops are highly engaging events designed to help young people improve their emotional intelligence.

Skilled and experienced workshop facilitators will customise the content and tone of the workshop based on the age and context of the young people involved. We have delivered successful Emotional Intelligence workshops to primary schools, universities, PRUs, children’s homes, charities, corporations and more.

By using proven methods such as role-play scenarios and participant-led discussion forums, we ensure the young people are actively involved in learning to develop their emotional intelligence skills.

We also provide high quality training and consultation packages so that teachers, PTA members, parents, community leaders, charities and more can deliver their own effective EQ workshops.

A ‘meta workshop’ for building powerful life skills

In some ways, 2020 Dreams Emotional Intelligence workshops can be thought of as ‘meta-workshops’. That’s because many of the skills that young people pick up from this workshop will help them to engage more deeply with other types of workshop and group lesson.
