Abstract

Date Presented 03/28/20

As the use of EI and self-awareness training within accredited OT programs becomes more prevalent, it will be important to describe and differentiate the benefits of and barriers to potential types of EI training. Therefore, this study examined the relationship between EI and self-awareness training. This study’s findings add new perspectives and depth to the current research and the evidence supporting the need for EI training in OT curricula.
