Enhance EQ & Support Your Friends

Fall 2020

According to Daniel Goleman, an American psychologist who popularized emotional intelligence, there are five key elements of emotional intelligence: Self-awareness, Self-regulation, Motivation, Empathy and Social Skills. People with high emotional intelligence will be able to understand, use and manage our own emotions in constructive ways to alleviate stress, communicate effectively, empathize with others, overcome challenges and defuse conflicts.

In this workshop, Ms. Kate Yu shared on integrating psychological theories into practical tips for students to navigate social and emotional obstacles to our well-being. She guided us to gain insights in human emotions and social interactions through some interesting thought-experiments and case studies. We are inspired to value self-care and empathetic communication in facing stress and adversity in life, thus gaining more confidence in handling our own emotions and in turn rendering timely support to our beloved ones.
