The book helps students move from understanding of the concepts to action through reflection and discussion questions.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review ?The perfect trilogy in one package! Stein, Book, and Kanoy have taken emotional intelligence (EI) from the laboratory of theory and scientific research and created a practical, relevant, and engaging program for students in secondary and postsecondary settings. Using the revised Bar-On EI model, this hands-on and user-friendly program includes the book, student workbook, and facilitation and activity guide and is backed by a wealth of practical experience and supporting studies. It has importance, meaning, and direct relevance to all students. As B. F. Skinner once asked, ?What will the world be like in 50 years?? The Student EQ Edge gives promise to finding the best answer.? ?Don Saklofske, professor, Psychology Department, Western University
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 1 stars (out of 5)
