Developing the 4 Capacities through Emotional Literacy’. Each capacity in the Curriculum for Excellence needs the core competencies of emotional literacy in order for it to be optimised. In other words we need to foster, nurture and facilitate emotional understanding, self regulation, empathy, resilience, respect and strong relational skills in order to ensure future citizens who are effective, involved, successful, positive, confident and responsible.
