Abstract

This article examines the importance of Emotional Intelligence in assessing and managing counselor impairment. The signs and symptoms of counselor impairment, the importance of assessing impairment, and Emotional Intelligence as a way to judge and manage possible impairment are discussed. Emotional Intelligence identifies an individual’s ability to look at the emotions of self and others and can, therefore, be used as a tool for the assessment of counselor impairment.
