Abstract


The aim of this study was to investigate the impact of the training program based on Bar-On model of emotional-social intelligence on the development of cognitive flexibility among secondary school students in Jordan. The study sample consisted of 40 male and female students who were randomly selected. The students were equally divided into experimental group and control group .The students in the experimental and control groups completed pre-test and post-test that measure their cognitive flexibility. The students in the experimental group received emotional intelligence training that was developed based on Bar-On model of emotional-social intelligence. The training program consisted of 15 sessions. The results showed significant differences between the mean scores of the two groups in the degree of cognitive flexibility in the post-test. The students in experimental group scored higher than the students in the control group. However, there were no significant differences between the mean scores of the experimental group in the degree of cognitive flexibility in the tests based on their gender.
