Description

This article details the impact of Emotional Intelligence (EI) training on the 10-year evolution of the Taos First Steps Home Visiting program. While EI has become standard fare in corporate training and practice, it is less well known in the world of early childhood services. This article highlights interviews with key personnel, both in-house and at the state level, to chart EI's impact on the organization's developing understanding of and support for the parent-child relationship. The authors point the way toward a possible method of replicating program successes by sequentially introducing foundational disciplines during staff orientation and training. (author abstract)
