Emotional intelligence in the classroom matters more now than ever.
Raising the bar for EQ in education. Written by Dr. Adam Saenz, a licensed psychologist with years of experience working within school districts, The EQ Intervention 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.
Better mental health on campus. Designed as a practical guide for educators and administrators, The EQ Intervention 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 tothoughtfully 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
''Dr. Saenz's experience working with students and staff makes this book a very powerful tool for all educators. This book validates how social and emotional learning impacts school cultures and positively impacts academics in the process. Emotional intelligence is an essential component of education...of life!''
—Orlando Farias, Principal, Mission Collegiate High School, The Mission Consolidated School District
''Kudos to Dr. Adam Saenz for laying the groundwork for best practices in Social and Emotional Learning! As educators, we often focus our work on improving instruction in order to meet standardized testing expectations but fall short in addressing this critical area. Now more than ever, we must provide social and emotional learning as statistics continue to show that mental health concerns are clearly on the rise in our younger children. The EQ Intervention goes beyond school safety and emphasizes why we must prepare our youth to handle the adversities of life. Simply put, our children's lives depend on social emotional learning. Thank you, Adam, for always being a ''Life Giver.'' Your insight and kindness never cease to amaze me.''
—Diana Otero, Ph.D., Director of Special Services, The Ysleta Independent School District
