The present study seeks to reveal the impact
Emotional Literacy Training (ELT) that lasted for two months, on students'
emotional intelligence performance. The study was designed as a
quasi-experimental research. The experimental group consisted of 16 students,
while 12 students were assigned to control group. Data in pre-test and
post-test were collected through the Ten Years Emotional Intelligence Scale
(TYEIS) developed by Coskun, Oksuz and Yilmaz (2017). Data were analysed
through the paired sample t-test and independent sample t-test. Findings of the
study indicated that ELT significantly increased experimental group students'
emotional intelligence performance and this significant increase remained
permanently. Results were discussed according to Experiential Learning and
Radical Behaviourism and in the light of relevant literature; several
implications were developed for teachers, other school staffs and researchers.
