Keywords:Emotional abilities, emotional intelligence, mental health, teaching, university students
Health undergraduate education is characterized by exhausting study periods and impactful clinical scenarios. This situation contributes to the development of numerous psychopathologies and reduced academic performance. However, the development of Emotional Competencies (EC) through Emotional Education (EE) plays a significant role in promoting the physical and psychological well-being of health undergraduates. This study examined the role of EE in the development of EC in healthcare students. An integrative literature review was conducted between August and September 2021 involving the Virtual Health Library: VHL (BIREME) - with access to MEDLINE, LILACS and IBECS, PubMed, PsycINFO, SciELO (Scientific Electronic Library Online - Regional Portal), Scopus and Web of Science databases. The search retrieved 385 articles, of which four were included in the review. The study results showed the intrinsic relationship between EE and the development of EC in health undergraduates. In addition, EC were associated with better academic performance, higher levels of Emotional Intelligence (EI) and greater professional opportunities.
