Adolescence is a period of heightened emotionality. If the adolescents cannot perceive, understand, regulate and function with their emotions it will leave indelible marks on their behaviour and personality. During adolescence (age 12 to 18 yrs), the transition from childhood to adulthood is most important. Children are becoming more independent, and begin to look at the future in terms of career, relationships, families, housing, etc. The individual wants to belong to a society and fit in. This is a major stage in development where the child has to learn the roles he will occupy as an adult. It is during this stage that the adolescent will re-examine his identity and try to find out exactly who he or she is. Emotional intelligence plays an important role in this phase. Emotional Intelligence signifies the ability to understand and manage ones as well as the others’ emotions. It refers to a combination of skills these include empathy, self control, self awareness, sensitivity to the feeling of others, persistence and self motivation among others. This paper will focus on the various theories and models related to emotional intelligence and its significance. Based on the theories and models, the researcher tried to bring out a frame work which makes a difference in the emotional Intelligence of adolescents.
