The Role of the Family in the Development of Emotional Intelligence in Adolescents
Keywords:adolescence; family architecture; attachment; emotional intelligence; structural integration
Relationships initiated in childhood affect how adolescents see the availability of parents
and form relationships with others. The success of these relationships depends on the level of
development of emotional intelligence, considered as essential for a successful life. The ability to
discern when and how to express emotions can help individuals and family members in building and
maintaining positive relationships. Emotional regulation is a key component of strong families. At the
same time, family education and childhood attachments will be reflected in the emotional intelligence
of the adolescent.
