EI Research in Action Symposium 2022

Enhancing social-emotional growth and developing resilience in young people are among the hallmarks of a great education in schools.
Churchie is pleased to offer a world-first Emotional Intelligence Symposium: Research in Action (EI22), designed to present and share emotional intelligence programmes and interventions in primary and secondary schools based on research and extensive experience. We are delighted to invite and host educators willing to share their programmes and research with other educators. 
 For many years, students, staff and parents at Churchie, and other leading schools across Australia, New Zealand and beyond, have embraced the science and practices of emotional intelligence to help young people grow personally. In partnership with Swinburne University, Melbourne, an innovative suite of teaching programmes has been designed and implemented by schools to help students grow into well-balanced and thriving community members.
