Emotional Intelligence (also referred to as EI and EQ) is about an individual’s ability to recognize and regulate their own emotions and the emotions of others in order to achieve his personal and/or professional goals.
The course learning will include the main topics on human emotions and some recent findings on individual differences in emotional dispositions and capabilities. The review of emotions research will include: definition and function of emotions, basic and complex emotions, dimensional and categorical models of emotion, emotion perception, models of emotion- processing, social aspects of emotions.
