(Revised, September 1, 2008)
Overview: An emerging field is that of Social and Emotional Learning, or Emotional Intelligence--and the effort to help people at all levels of school, and in the workplace and other settings, to develop skills in communicatons, interpersonal and group problem-solving, and self-awareness. (I want to see role playing and other experiential methods used as a major element so that the learning-by-doing will be more effective.) At any rate, I'm excited about all these efforts, and hope some of you will join in this. To this end, here are some websites and book references:
