Emotional Literacy Resources

Emotional literacy is the ability to recognize and label emotions. Researchers have found evidence that emotional intelligence, along with the ability to empathize with others, is almost as important as cognitive abilities in determining success in life. The early evidence for this was so compelling that by the mid-1990s many school systems began integrating social and emotional learning into the curriculum. Businesses have also encouraged emotional literacy within their organizations. Individuals who possess emotional literacy generally have higher self-esteem, a better ability to control and manage emotions, and are better able to handle conflict resolution. For those wishing to learn more about emotional literacy, there are many resources available on the Internet.
