Emotional education is one of the psycho-pedagogical innovations of recent years that responds to social needs that are not sufficiently addressed in ordinary academic subjects.
Bisquerra, R. (2009).
To give attention to social and emotional skills, teachers must have knowledge about emotional education.
Rafael Bisquerra defined emotional education as “an educational, continuous and permanent process, which aims to promote the development of emotional competencies as an essential element of human development, in order to enable them for life in order to increase personal and social well-being”.
Emotional education is a process that is cultivated throughout life and its objective is focused on the needs of students: acquire a better knowledge of their own emotions, identify the emotions of others, name emotions correctly, develop skills to regulate one’s own emotions, increase the tolerance threshold for frustration, prevent the harmful effects of negative emotions, develop the skills to generate positive emotions, etc.
Emotions are an essential part of life, but few give it the necessary attention. Rafael Bisquerra stated that “We continually experience emotions, but rarely do we stop to reflect on what emotions are and how they influence thinking and behaviour.”
The first addressee is the teaching staff because they need the emotional competences for the exercise of their profession. Second, to be able to contribute to the development of the emotional competencies of their students.
Daniel Goleman wrote in his book “Emotional Intelligence” that all emotions are in essence impulses that lead us to act, automatic reaction programs with which evolution has endowed us.
Emotional education optimises the integral development of the person (physical, intellectual, moral, social, emotional development, etc.) and covers topics that are of utmost importance in the personal development of teachers, as well as in their daily practice, both the knowledge of the conceptual framework of emotions, such as the relationship between emotions and learning, emotional intelligence. It is an education that is practiced throughout life and it is important to know how to apply it personally and develop it in the classroom.
Education has been aimed at the integral development of students, giving importance to socio-emotional skills. In the official UNESCO report “Education contains a treasure”, prepared by Jacques Delors in 1996, it is mentioned that “it is no longer enough for each individual to accumulate at the beginning of their life a reserve of knowledge to which they will be able to draw on later without limits. Above all, they must be in a position to take advantage of and use every opportunity that comes their way to update, deepen and enrich this first knowledge and to adapt to a world in permanent change throughout their lives ”. The four pillars of education are also exposed so that these missions can be fulfilled: learn to know, learn to do, learn to live together and learn to be.
In these four pillars of education, the first two (learning to know and learning to do) focus on acquiring knowledge and putting it into practice in life.
The other two (learning to live together and learning to be) focus on social and emotional skills, which have not been given the necessary attention in the classroom
In the same report it is mentioned that “in each structured teaching system, each of these four pillars of knowledge must receive equivalent attention“.
