The Student EQ Edge provides a thorough grounding in what emotional intelligence is, why it is different from one's intelligence quotient, and how emotional intelligence skills can make a student a 'star performer.' Grounded in the classic work of Dr. Reuven Bar-On, the book discusses each realm of emotional intelligence: The Intrapersonal Realm: self-awareness, assertiveness, and independence; The Interpersonal Realm: empathy and social responsibility; The Adaptability Realm: o problem solving, flexibility and decision making; The Stress Management Realm: stress tolerance and impulse control; the General Mood Realm: happiness and optimism. The book helps students move from understanding of the concepts to action through reflection and discussion questions.
