MUNOZ ZAMORA, Graciela. An experience of emotional education in the formation of early childhood educators. Rev. estud. exp. educ. [online]. 2020, vol.19, n.39, pp.45-55. ISSN 0718-5162.

A systematization of the Emotional Education Course, as a part of curriculum redesigning of the Early Childhood Education Program at Universidad Metropolitana de Ciencias de la Education, to respond to a formation need detected by faculty and students in the area, is described. This curricular activity was carried out with first-semester students and its objective is enhancing self-esteem, emotional, and communication capacities to foster positive professional and personal identity. The activity is developed using life experiences and a methodology that encourages student expression and confidence building. The results show the beliefs concerning bodies, emotions, and interpersonal relationships, and their link with the educator’s role. The experience highlights meaningfully the value of emotional education in the formation of future first-infancy educators.

Keywords : Identity; afectivity; body; emotions.
