Earlier this month, several Northwestern Oklahoma State University psychology students accompanied Dr. Karen Linstrum, assistant professor of psychology, to the Daniel Goleman Seminar held at the University of Central Oklahoma.

Northwestern students included Teresa Byrne, Enid graduate student; Lila Pettyjohn, Lahoma senior; Deleah Poe, Stillwater graduate student; and Josh Lange-Casillas, Rancho Cucamonga (Calif.) senior and Psychology Club president.

They listened to Goleman speak about research using the Emotional Intelligence Framework model he developed. Goleman discussed the crucial parts of the brain involved in self-awareness, social awareness, self-management and relationship management including the amygdala, somatosensory cortex, insula, anterior cingulate, and the prefrontal cortex.

Attending the seminar also were public school educators and those in administration, business consulting, representatives for the Department of Human Services, psychology, nursing and business faculty and students from Oklahoma universities.

Goleman graduated with a doctorate from Harvard. He co-directs the Consortium for Research on Emotional Intelligence in Organizations. He is co-founder of the Collaborative for Academics, Social and Emotional Learning. His publishing web address is www.morethansound.net.
