Emotional intelligence comprises a set of emotional skills that allow one to correctly select feelings and unconscious mechanisms in interacting with others, and contributes to the development of self-confidence, improved understanding of relationships with the environment, and the regulation of emotions for the purpose of emotional and intellectual development. Since the relationship is essential for the development of emotional intelligence, already in the earliest stages of life, family and parental relationships are a major factor in developing it. As parents transfer their embedded beliefs, cultural characteristics and early relationships to the parent-child relationship, psychotherapy counseling is a method of choice by which parents, recognizing and changing their beliefs and actions, stimulate positive emotional development in their children.
