ABSTRACT

This study sought to determine how emotional intelligence correlates with teachers’ competence in the management of in-school adolescents’ crises in Akwa-Ibom State. Five research questions and five null hypotheses guided the study. The study adopted a correlation research design. The sample for the study consisted of 344 respondents made up of teachers drawn from 7,302 teachers through multi-stage sampling technique from the 253 public Secondary Schools in Akwa-Ibom State. Two instruments namely: Emotional intelligence Questionnaire (EIQ) and Teachers Competences in the Management of in-School Adolescent Crises (TCMIACQ) were developed by researcher and validated by three experts: one from Psychology, one from Guidance and Counselling and one expert from Measurement and Evaluation; all from the Michael Okpara University of Agriculture, Umudike respectively. The internal consistency of the instruments was determined through use of Cronbach Alpha method and reliability indices of 0.79 and 0.83 were obtained for EIQ and TCMIACQ, respectively. The data obtained through the administration of the instruments were analysed using Pearson product moment correlation coefficient to answer research questions. Linear regression was used to test null hypotheses one to four, while multiple regressions were used to test null hypotheses five at 0.05 level of significance. Scheffe test was also done for a stepwise comparison of the means for hypotheses five. The study revealed the following findings: The components of emotional intelligence (emotional perception, emotional assimilation, emotional understanding and emotional management)jointly had a very high and significant relationship with teachers’ competences in the management of in-school adolescent crises. Emotional intelligence (emotional perception, emotional assimilation, emotional understanding and emotional management) jointly had percentage contribution of 99.9% in teachers’ competence in the management of in-school adolescents’ crises. However, emotional management had the highest percentage contribution of 32.8%; followed by emotional understanding with 25.8%, emotional perception with 22.6%; and lastly emotional assimilation which predicted 18.8% of teachers’ competence in the management of in-school adolescents’ crises. Among the educational implications was that the study could provide supportive frameworks from which one can assess the importance of emotional intelligence in teachers’ competence in the management of in school adolescents’ crises. It was thus recommended that teachers should cultivate competence in the different components of emotional intelligence in order to effectively manage in-school adolescents’ crises.
