Tracks 1, 5 and 10: An introductory lecture to Emotional Literacy Education with commentaries by Mark Zimmerman on Psychologist Susie Orbach's quotes, "Emotional Literacy means being able to recognize what you are feeling, so that it doesn't interfere with thinking. It becomes another dimension to draw upon when making decisions or encountering situations. Emotional expression by contrast can mean being driven by emotions, so that it isn't possible to think. These two things are often confused, because we are still uncomfortable with the idea of the validity of feelings." From The Guardian on August 12th, 1998.

Tracks 2, 4 and 11: An introductory lecture to Emotional Literacy Education with commentaries by Mark Zimmerman on Psychologist Claude Steiner's quotes, "To be Emotionally Literate is to be able to handle emotions in a way that improves your personal power, and improves the quality of life for you, and equally important, the quality of life for the people around you.
"Emotional Literacy helps your emotions to work for you instead of against you. It improves relationships, creates loving possibilities between people, makes cooperative work possible, and facilitates the feeling of community.
"But Emotional Literacy is not a mere unleashing of the emotions - it is also learning to understand, manage and control them.
"Being Emotionally Literate means that you know what emotions you and others have, how strong they are, and what causes them.
"Being Emotionally Literate means that you know how to manage your emotions, because you understand them.
"With Emotional Literacy training, you will learn how to express your feelings, when and where to express them, and how they affect others.
"You will also develop empathy and will learn to take responsibility for the way your emotions affect others. Through this training, you will become an emotional gourmand - aware of the texture, flavor, and aftertaste of your emotions. You will learn how to let your rational skills work hand-in-hand with your emotional skills, adding to your ability to relate to other people. Hence, you will become better at everything you do with others: parenting, partnering, working, playing, teaching, and loving." From Claude Steiner's book, Emotional Literacy Intelligence with Heart.

This handbook seeks to redress this, and looks at the importance of the fourth 'R' - Relationships." From Nurturing Emotional Literacy.

"One thing I feel.
"I am the ladder."
Tracks 9 and 16: An introductory lecture to Emotional Literacy Education with commentaries by Mark Zimmerman on Mark Zimmerman's quotes from emotionalliteracyeducation.com:
"Emotional Literacy Education is the refinement of a knowledge base that has been around for thousands of years. It has been the focus of religion, philosophy, science and psychology. It is Self-Knowledge which has been formulated into a language of emotions which can be taught.
"The fundamental principle of Emotional Literacy Education is the need for the individual to understand him or herself and others. The current educational system is based upon the recognition of the need for the individuals to learn how to read, write and do arithmetic. These skills are taught for the economic benefit of the child. Happiness is an emotional state as well as an economic state. What we, as adults, were not taught in school, is how to achieve happiness.
"Emotional Literacy Education is based upon an Emotional Literacy Vocabulary. It is a means by which language is used to introduce a student to his or her own emotional values. Emotional Literacy Vocabulary permeates nearly all literature. In what we write is how we feel, think, desire and behave. From this vocabulary a structured language will be taught which relates to the content of our human selves. When we study ourselves, new choices in our feelings, thoughts and behaviors are made available to us.
"What are the features of an Emotional Literacy Education system? reference material, the Emotional Literacy Language, a curriculum, teaching materials, activities, and the achievement of Emotional Literacy Objectives."
