What You'll Learn from the Emotional Intelligence Diploma Course

To understand how to cultivate emotional intelligence, we must first understand emotion itself. This course explains how the brain and these natural responses have evolved with you, why they exist at all, and why it is that emotions are often able to take over our thoughts.

The Emotional Intelligence Diploma Course also looks at chemical reactions and aspects of how the mind and brain meet, explaining how together they affect our health and wellbeing and how, through the management of the mind, we can maintain a healthy brain. You will also learn about intelligence and the current view of it along with the nature of emotional hijacking and how prevalent it is in society.

When we allow emotions to govern our actions, it can affect our lives in negative ways. It is easy to be driven by emotive responses, despite trying to think logically. The course explores the ways in which we may respond with emotion, rather than logic, and how to regain control over these emotions, through recognising and understanding them.

Our emotional state can also affect our physical health The course looks into how emotional stress and related conditions, such as anxiety and depression, can take their toll on the immune and cardiovascular systems. The course also looks into early learning environments and how our own emotional intelligence is affected by the behaviours of our parents.

The course guides you through how to look at your own emotional intelligence. You will discover how to understand the common factors of our own emotional reactions. Using thought processes, such as mindfulness, you will learn how to manage emotion and the triggers that can cause problems in life and relationships.

As well as reflecting on our emotions, it is important also to take the time to consider the emotions of others. The Emotional Intelligence Diploma Course looks at ways we can cultivate empathy and interpersonal intelligence, to ensure effective communication.

You will learn about the 5 common traits used by scientists and psychologists to describe and understand personality. You will discover how to deal with difficult people and prevent emotional hijacking.

As well as the personal use of emotional intelligence, the course also looks at the wider landscape of the subject. You will learn about how society uses emotional intelligence in business and individual success, as well as the deeper aspects of our existence, inclusive of energetic awareness and intuition.
