Welcome Message from the President of the Organization Committee, Dr. António de Almeida Figueiredo

The first Emotional Intelligence and Education International Congress, organized by the Escola Básica Comendador Ângelo de Azevedo in S. Roque – Oliveira de Azeméis, has its first edition on the theme “Investigate and Intervene to Change”.
The main goal of this Congress is to acknowledge the Emotional Intelligence scientific investigation at a global level (research, development, training, implementation, support and assessment) so to as offer resources and educational techniques that can facilitate and promote the emotional, cognitive and social development since early childhood, as a behavior model which embraces school, family and the community.
Through this sharing among investigators and professionals the congress organization intends to improve the qualifications of the teachers and psychologists teams who integrate the CIEE Project, as well as the qualifications of all the professionals whose interest is to better the variables that influence happiness.
We wish S. Roque – Oliveira de Azeméis to be the space for the construction of a knowledge interchange platform in which the exchange of experiences and ideas the ties that make investigation and intervention in Emotional intelligence progress.
The participants will also have the opportunity to visit a region with touristic and cultural tradition, where the landscape and the gastronomy are tempting.
We invite you to this challenge. This project is built with your presence and contribution.
