International Symposium 2005

edited by Con Stough, Swinburne University of Technology, Victoria, Australia, Donald H. Saklofske, University of Calgary, Calgary, Alberta, Canada, and Karen Hanson, Swinburne University of Technology, Victoria, Australia

While emotional intelligence is not a new construct, interest in it has expanded since the publication of Daniel Goleman’s landmark book in 1995. During the past ten years, several models and many measures of emotional intelligence have been proposed, tested, marketed, and used across organizational, educational, and clinical domains. As part of this new movement, researchers and practitioners have been using and applying the different models and measures of emotional intelligence.

In order to meet the increasing need to bring together their experience, the editors invited an international cast of experts on emotional intelligence to a special one-day research symposium sponsored by Swinburne University. Throughout this busy day, the participants presented their ideas and provided insight into the latest applications of this complex and controversial construct.

This book will be of interest to researchers, practitioners, human resource managers, psychologists, students, and indeed anybody who is interested in learning about the latest developments and discussions regarding emotional intelligence. In order to capture the vitality of the symposium, the contributions to this book are transcriptions of the actual papers and are presented with a CD-ROM of the Power Point slides from each speaker.
