Second Call Autumn school on the Assessment of Emotional Intelligence/Competence

Deadline Extention: Second Call Autumn school on the Assessment of Emotional Intelligence/Competence, November 23 - 29, 2014

Dear colleagues,

This is the second call for the Autumn school on the Assessment of Emotional Intelligence/Competence (, and see also folder in attach).

The concept of emotional intelligence been proposed almost 25 years ago in the scientific literature. Ever since it has attracted keen interest both in the scientific world and applied domains. The idea that persons differ in their ability to recognize, understand, and manage emotional processes in themselves and others is theoretically appealing and practically relevant. Yet, ever since its emergence this scientific domain has been characterized by vigorous debates on how this construct should be conceptualized, and especially how it could be assessed in a valid and reliable fashion.

During the autumn school recent scientific developments in the assessment of emotional intelligence and competence will be presented. Leading scientific experts from the two dominant approaches in this domain, namely the ability approach and the trait approach, will present new developments. The lectures and workshops will focus on the refinement of the construct, its relationship with current emotion theories and research, the opportunities and challenges in constructing psychometrically sound instruments, and applications in clinical, work, and school contexts.

The autumn school is organized at Ghent University by the European Association of Psychological Assessment and the European Research Council (ERC) Advanced Grant Production and Perception of Emotion which is hosted by The National Center of Competence in Research in the Affective Sciences at the University of Geneva (Application deadline: August 1, 2014).

Please feel free to circulate this call among your staff and colleagues, other members of your organization, or interested people.

We apologize for possible cross-posting.
