As pretest and post test emotional intelligence questionnaire and Brunel Mood Scale was administrated for each groups. Emotional intelligence components training during eleven sessions twice a week was applied for experimental groups. The control groups did not receive intervention . . Data were analyzed by univariate covariance (ANCOVA).
