It's OK to think about feelings 2

十一月 11, 2005

Dennis Hayes's fears for the impact of the touchy-feely brigade serves up a confused picture. While I wholly endorse the notions of academic freedom and intellectually robust criticism, I cannot agree that valuing emotional intelligence signals the demise of higher education as we know it.

In my experience, the opposite applies. Encouraging emotional wellbeing and the provision of a therapeutic space for those staff and students who wish to access it is an asset for the institution and a valuable counter to the increasing competitive pressures inherent in the sector.
