The increased interest in the emotional aspect of young people's development has made teachers aware of the need to deal in a structured way with emotional learning.

This book provides a clear, developmental framework for emotional literacy skills across the primary age range.

From nursery to Year 6 the strands are:

- complexity of Emotion

- self-awareness

- managing emotions

- relationships

- awareness of others

- communication.

As well as providing a structure on which a whole school approach can be based, the programme for each year group has clear objectives and a range of suggested activities.

Research indicates that emotionally literate people learn more effectively, show greater empathy and have an increased ability to main relationships and solve conflicts. The clear, developmental style of this book will assist all primary schools in providing a coherent structure to support this development.
