Emotional Intelligence and Implications for Counseling Self-Efficacy: Phase II
Easton, Crystal; Martin, William E.; Wilson, Sheilah
Counselor Education and Supervision, v47 n4 p218-232 Jun 2008
The authors present Phase II of a 9-month study of the relationship between emotional intelligence and counseling self-efficacy. One-hundred eighteen counselors-in-training and professional counselors completed the Counseling Self-Estimate Inventory (COSE) and Emotional Judgment Inventory (EJI). There was a significant correlation between 2 of the EJI scales (Identifying Own Emotions and Identifying Others' Emotions) and 4 of the 5 COSE scales. Students' perceived counseling self-efficacy showed a significant gain when compared with that of professional counselors over the 9-month period. Results support findings of Phase I (W. E. Martin, C. Easton, S. Wilson, M. Takemoto, & S. Sullivan, 2004), which indicated that emotional intelligence may be a unique construct inherent in persons who are preparing for careers as professional counselors.
