In 2007 the Botín Foundation began this line of research with the aim of analysing, in collaboration with renowned experts, the state of social and emotional education in various countries. The results of this research, which analysed 21 countries in the subsequent years, have been made known via the dissemination of meaningful educational experiences which took place in these countries, published in various reports in 2008, 2011, 2013 and 2015 (click here to view them). This research contributes knowledge, know-how and innovative propositions for tackling the challenge that we never lose sight of: improving educational quality and wellbeing in childhood and adolescence through the holistic development of individuals.
In these reports you can also consult the latest research associated with the impact of social and emotional education, in studies carried out in the global and European spheres as well as at the local level, thanks to the results obtained from the educational programme implemented by the Botín Foundation in Cantabria.
Finally, the 2015 report presents the process that was carried out to create two tools designed by the Botín Foundation to measure emotional intelligence in adolescents (TIEFBA) and in children (TIEFBI) (each of these must take you to the application’s website).
