Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. elucidate the relationship between emotional intelligence and educator burnout.
  2. understand the benefits of a newly developed self-rating scale for emotional intelligence in educators.
  3. understand possible future interventions for increasing educator emotional intelligence.

Description

To determine the relationship between emotional intelligence (EI) and burnout, the Scales of Emotional Functioning: Educators (SEF:ED) and the Maslach Burnout Inventory: Educators Survey (MBI-ES) were administered to 97 inservice educators. Statistically significant correlation coefficients (p < .05) in the anticipated direction were found between the three SEF:ED and the three MBI-ES scales. Attendees will learn about the benefits of promoting EI and the important linkage between EI and burnout for educators.
