Abstract: The current literature proposes that Emotional Intelligence (EI) may play a pivotal role in accounting for individualsā€˜ learning outcomes, work performance and quality of life (QoL). This chapter intends to explore how the Maltese1 Personal and Social Development (PSD) Model implemented in primary and secondary schools embraces EI and uses it as part of its theoretical framework. The Maltese PSD Model is based on six paradigms: the Experiential Learning Model, Deweyian, Freirian, Maslowian, and Rogerian paradigms, as well as Neurological evidence. These provide the model with philosophical, sociological and psychological constructs to help design and assess interventions. Based on humanistic and progressive values, positive psychology and experiential learning, the ultimate goal of the Maltese PSD model is self-empowerment.
