Emotional intelligence and coping styles: An intervention in geriatric nurses

Abstract: Current research indicates a relationship between EI, stress, coping strategies, well-being and mental health. Emotional intelligence skills and knowledge, and coping strategies can be increased with training. Objective: The aims of this study were to use a controlled design to test the impact of theoretically based training on the different components of EI and coping styles in a sample of nurses working with older adults. Methods: A group of 92 professionals (RN and CAN) who attended a workshop on EI were included in the study. They completed a self-reported measure of EI and coping styles on three occasions: pre- and post-workshop and at one year follow-up. The EI workshop consisted of four 4-h sessions conducted over a four-week period. Each sessionwas held at the one-week interval. This interval allowed participants to applywhatwas taught during the session to their daily life. The instruments to measure the EI and copingwere the Trait Meta-Mood Scale and the CAE test. Results: There were significant differences between the pre- and post-workshop measures both at the end of the workshop and up to one year for both the Trait Meta-Mood Scale scores and the CAE test. There was a significant increase in the EI and coping styles after the workshop and one year thereafter. Conclusion: The workshop was useful for developing EI in the professionals. The immediate impact of the emotional consciousness of individualswas particularly significant for all participants. The long-term impact was notable for the significant increase in EI and most coping styles.
