Amy McConnell Franklin, Ph.D., Senior Consultant for Six Seconds and Educational Trainer and Consultant, will be in Singapore Nov. 23rd and 24th, facilitating a two day conference on Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) and Emotional Intelligence (EI). The Six Seconds model of Emotional Intelligence will be the foundation of this interactive workshop for school administrators, teachers and parents committed to bringing EI, ”the missing piece” of education, to their children and school communities.
Emotional Intelligence is an achievement that is both teachable and learnable. A robust and growing body of research acknowledges the benefits and feasibility of systematically and consistently integrating EI in schools through teacher training and direct student instruction. EI training is the foundational building block of effective and sustainable SEL programs. Educators and school communities around the globe are increasingly realizing the need to model and teach the concepts and skills of emotional intelligence in school communities, as a core curricular component, in order to create more circumspect decision makers, more compassionate, accountable and resilient members of society and more successful, creative students and problem solvers.
The author of the recently published Choose to Change: A step by step guide for fostering emotional intelligence in the classroom, @ 2009, Dr. Franklin has taught the concepts and skills of EI to teachers and parents in the USA and internationally since 2003. This new book is a primer to help teachers and school systems begin to create more compassionate, interactive, safe and successful school environments. She returns to Singapore for this second annual International SEL conference to share experiences and models for effectively bringing EI to schools communities. Join her in order to deepen your understanding of EI and explore ways and means of bringing these critical skills and concepts to your children, to your school communities and to the next generation.
