        • OPA Emotional Intelligence Home Study (2.0 CE)

Using Emotional Intelligence with Negative People (2.0 CE)

Note: This course was posted on the OPA Web site on Nov. 20, 2007 during the 2006-08 biennium.

Author: Michael Kravitz, Ph.D.

While factual knowledge, how-to skills and IQ continue to be important as requirements for job success, emotional intelligence skills have become even more crucial and valuable. Relationships with clients, their families and additional helping professionals rely on the ability to use emotional intelligence skills. The added benefits of personal satisfaction, combined with a successful career, make emotional intelligence a key competency for any clinician.
