Shares an approach that will help educators boost their pupils' emotional literacy, with the broader aim of nurturing a more grounded, engaged and intrinsically motivated child. Foreword by Ian Gilbert. Do teachers truly understand their pupils? And do the pupils themselves really understand their own needs? In Independent Thinking on Emotional Literacy, Richard Evans reminds every school educator that behind every child is a set of circumstances so entwined - and within them a set of emotions so involved - that to ignore them is to be complicit in any educational failings. Richard's aim in this book is to help improve and harness both the educator's and their pupils' emotional literacy by promoting discussion around the often-unspoken issues that prevent children from making progress at school. He also shares with teachers a tailor-made passport template to start them on the road to deeper pupil understanding - whether it's for the girl who falls asleep at the back, the boy who needs constant support on a daily basis, or those pupils who'll need extra careful attention at parents' evening. Independent Thinking on Emotional Literacy is one of a number of books in the Independent Thinking On - series from the award-winning Independent Thinking Press.

Emotions remain largely invisible in the management of criminal justice practice. This book seeks to uncover some of the underground emotional work of practitioners and make visible the impact of both positive and negative emotions, which play a crucial role in practitioner-offender relationships. Exploring how practitioners understand, regulate and work with emotion, Knight argues that the 'soft skills' of emotion are more likely to achieve motivation and change in offenders than the 'hard' skills of punishment, monitoring and surveillance. The book examines some of the gendered implications of this practice and develops an argument for the explicit building of emotional resources within organizations to sustain the development, enhancement and support of emotional literacy in the workforce. Using practice examples, Knight reveals how practitioners can benefit from having an understanding of their own emotions and how these can impact on their practice. This unique and accessible book will be a valuable resource to practitioners across the criminal justice sector including probation officers, youth justice workers, police and prison officers, social workers, policymakers and managers, as well as scholars working within criminology, criminal justice and probation.

Emotional literacy is the ability to understand one's own feelings and to empathise with others in a way that enhances living. In this work Steiner shows how emotional intelligence can be developed by following his three stage training programme. Practical exercises and questionnaires are included. First he shows how to open the heart with techniques to break down the barriers which separate us from our feelings. Next he teaches how feelings can be recognised and expressed productively, and how to listen with empathy as others express their emotions. Finally he shows how to take the responsibility by means of defining problems in relationships, accepting our role in them and making meaningful changes. Practical exercises to nurture emotional literacy skills and questionnaires which allow the reader to evaluate their EQ appear throughout, whilst real-life examples are also given.

This text presents a methodical, organized approach to counseling students in emotional intelligence (EI) by detailing how to understand and direct emotions, while also keying counselors directly to the underlying emotional motivations behind the behaviors. Divided into four units, the book starts with an overview of emotions and continue to explore the nature of anger, fear, grief, and guilt. Chapters present both explanatory narratives and teen-centered activities to show how these challenging, uncomfortable feelings when unregulated may negate resiliency and lead to anxiety, bullying, depression, and teen suicide. Counselors and educators alike will benefit from the light, unexacting tone that encourages humor and levity and discusses how to handle difficult emotions without harsh and heavy overtones.

Children can struggle to engage with and articulate certain emotions, which can have a profound impact on their behaviour, confidence and ability to form relationships, follow instructions and perform tasks. This resource for teachers, therapists, counsellors and parents uses children's literature and some of its well-known characters, such as the Rainbow Fish and Stanley Yelnats IV from Holes, as a basis for practical activities that enable children to express and manage these emotions. Social-emotional literacy training assists students in developing important life skills such as the ability to develop good relationships and empathy skills, as well as being able to understand, manage and communicate their own emotions. This book offers an introduction to social-emotional literacy, followed by activities related to emotions such as empathy, friendship, grief and self-esteem, aiming to embed this literacy training into daily school and home activities to increase children's chances of future success.

Emotional Literacy: The heart of classroom management is a book for primary school teachers, counsellors and therapists who wish to develop emotional literacy skills in classroom situations. It provides resources for managing the 'feeling' life of children and offers a classroom management model that creates opportunities for healing emotions, rather than emotions being denied, repressed, discounted or excluded from the process. Author Patricia Sherwood provides a framework for understanding the non-verbal languages and skills needed for children to identify the basic human feelings of anger, grief, aloneness, fear, judgement, and the bully and victim behaviours arising from such feelings. Included are group classroom exercises that help to reduce the possibility of major behavioural problems or psychological disturbances and simple self-managed processes that give children basic skills to identify and manage their own emotions.
