Abstract

Emotional life is a path of existential experiences. Young people need emotional skills, essential in making choices about themselves and relationships. Emotions are in constant connection with reason. And so well heart and brain, pathos and logos. Though cognitive intelligence is very important, emotional intelligence and training in “emotional literacy” are required for young people today, to perceive, assess, and manage one’s own emotions, and also recognizing the emotions of those around us. But where and how young people can explore this vital area of education in more depth? Not in Soap operas and reality TV . The capacity to operate effectively choices in life, using self-awareness, empathy and social skills, is what a widespread emotional education might do in prevention of discomfort and promotion of self-awareness.
