Consent Education and Emotional Intelligence Poster February 2017

What is Emotional Intelligence?

Emotional Intelligence (EI) is a combination of personal and social competencies. EI includes perceiving, expressing, understanding, and managing emotions. In health promotion, EI is the bridge between health messaging and actual behaviour change, because it allows for deep and honest connections.

How EI fits with Sexual Consent Education

The actual practice of sexual consent involves the risk of rejection, fear, embarrassment, guilt, disappointment, and social consequences. To be successful at promoting consent-seeking behaviours, educators have to build clients’ emotional capacities and skills. EI offers tools to do just that.

This one-hour webinar will help health professionals and educators learn to apply key Emotional Intelligence concepts to sexual health promotion, including condom use and sexual consent.

Karen B. K. ChanKaren B. K. Chan is a sex and emotional literacy educator in Toronto, Ontario. Karen (aka BK) has taught and written about sex, sexuality, and Emotional Intelligence for over 18 years. Her work is grounded in anti-oppressive and justice principles, as well as empathy and play. She is dedicated to having conversations about sexuality that are real, transformative, and kind.
