Relationship Between EI and IR : A Part from the Book Chapter : Understanding the Connection between Emotional Intelligence and Interpersonal Relations among University Upgrading (Grade V) Teacher Students

Whereas there have been several studies on Emotional Intelligence, the relationship between EI and IR has not been explored. Kabunga and Jesse in their study of EI among psychotherapists in Northern Uganda found that 60.0% possessed high levels of self-awareness, 60.3% reported high levels of social awareness, 55.6% scored highly in self-management and 70.1% scored highly in social skills. Whereas EI is responsible for between 32% to 74% and 80% of the success in our lives, teacher education programmes in Uganda do not stipulate EI as a vital and critical issue even when psychology and professional ethics are included in the teacher education curriculum. This study, therefore, seeks to understand the relationship between EI and IR among upgrading university teacher students (Grade V).
