The Handbook of Emotional Intelligence: Theory, Development, Assessment, and Application at Home, School, and in the Workplace

(Reuven Bar-On). Wiley Publishing, 2000.

At heart, this resource explains in detail the empirical research (assessment, documented development techniques, and interventions) that underlies the constructs of emotional intelligence. The variety of methodologies used to evaluate emotional intelligence guarantees that there will be an approach, analysis, and applicability for all research savvy readers. Ideas related to emotional intelligence include emotional awareness and competence, openness to experience, social competence and awareness, practical intelligence, and psychological mindedness. Because the majority of chapters read like heavy research articles—with abstracts, a myriad of literature references, and statistical coefficients of reliability and validity—this handbook is most useful for generally developing and justifying emotional intelligence concepts, models, and constructs.
