This is a workshop for teachers, psychologists, education professionals and anyone who is interested in learning about the applications of Emotional Literacy in the classroom and in educational settings in general. This online seminar will raise awareness and practical implications in the classroom with reference to different cultures and contexts. It will explore frameworks for EL, an overview of the research on EI and show how its principles can be used in schools and integrated into the education of children and adolescents.
