How is emotional literacy different than emotional intelligence?
Just as IQ is a measure of your potential to learn cognitively, EQ (or emotional intelligence) is a measure of your potential to learn emotionally. People develop their intellect through traditional literacy – the ABCs. In the same way, we can increase our emotional intelligence by learning to notice, name and navigate our emotions.
Do I have to be a therapist to work with emotions?
We do often connect emotions and emotional health with therapy, but emotions are a part of every human's make up. We all have emotions, but most of us have never learned much about them. Emotional literacy is not a substitute for therapy or counseling but is a tool we can use every day as we react and respond to the world around us.
