A Reformal Approach for Turkey: Emotional- and Social-Oriented Teacher Education
Ozabaci, Nilufer
International Journal of Educational Reform, v14 n3 p351-363 Sum 2005
Social skills and emotional intelligence are closely related to each other. The analysis of the relationships between these two variables constitutes the problem of this study, considering the influence of teachers on improving these important features. This study made an evaluation on the relationships between levels of social skills and emotional intelligence of students attending a master's program without thesis as candidate teachers. To this aim, the author asked the following questions: First, is there a relationship between the social skill levels and emotional intelligence levels of students attending a teacher training program as candidate teachers? Second, is there a relationship between the social skill levels and emotional intelligence levels of students attending a teacher training program as candidate teachers with regard to gender? With regard to the results, there was a high relationship between the levels of understanding of one's own emotions and the understanding of others' emotions, and the subdimensions of social narrating and emotional sensitivity of candidate teachers. The fact that emotional intelligence levels of candidate teachers were high in the subdimensions of awareness of one's own emotions and understanding others' emotions may be interpreted as the reflection of the same process in social relations. Further, the high relationship of being sensitive to emotional levels and reflecting this in social behaviors may be interpreted as ensuring emotional adequacy toward understanding others' emotions as a teacher.
