The Impact of Emotional Intelligence on Social Capital: Parents and Early Intervention

Presenter: Veera Mookerjee, PhD, LMSW

Wednesday, 6/30/21
12pm to 1pm

Parents whose children are enrolled in Early Intervention are especially in need of support and resources for their children and for the whole family. The efforts these parents make to connect to and work with therapists, educators, social workers, and mentors build a network of connections and is called social investment, the time, emotions and efforts they invest in for years. These connections, resources and relationships are called Social Capital. Parents invest in this social capital to support the achievement of aspired goals for their children.
We are now realizing that building this social capital is influenced by the emotional intelligence of both parents and the professionals with whom they work. This workshop will be an open stage to examine and discuss how one’s emotional intelligence impacts the connections and relationships one builds and the effect of social capital on professional service efficacy.

Learn the concepts of Social Capital and Emotional Intelligence in relation to Early Intervention.
Understand the use of the contemporary theories in relation to Early Intervention services and working with families.
Attendees will be in a path of developing professional efficacy when working with families in stress and addressing their spoken and unspoken needs.
