Emotional intelligence in the classroom matters more now than ever. This book is an accessible, deep-dive exploration into the critical value of practicing Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) skills in your role as an educator, including stopping violence in schools before it ever starts. To advance better mental health on campus, the book includes a research-backed tool called the Educator Assessment of Social and Emotional Learning (EASEL). Using this assessment, measure your own SEL skills or those of your faculty to identify where you can adjust conflict resolution practices in the classroom for a healthier, safer, more self-aware campus. The lessons and tools in this book can help educators to thoughtfully address points of conflict among students, between students and teachers, and between teachers and school administration. The EQ Intervention includes careful analysis of common issues facing educators in the classroom, such as:

  • Students disrupting class
  • Students facing turbulence or instability at home
  • Intervening in personal conflicts between students
  • Discussing potential learning disabilities or behavioral issues with parents
  • Faculty and administrators with difficult or uncooperative working styles
