- An explanation of how social and emotional intelligence are related to cultural factors
- An explanation about how you, as a social worker, might apply the concepts of emotional and/or social intelligence to the case of Andres
- An explanation of how social workers, in general, might apply social and emotional intelligence to social work practice. (Include a specific example in the explanation.)
