    Abstract

    School is a place where pupils on a daily basis deal with new challenges, come into conflicts with peers and teachers, struggle with undesirable grades, feel personal distress etc. All these situations stir up various emotions and pupils can learn how to constructively express these emotions or deal with them. However, in encouraging the use of effective emotion regulation strategies, pupils often need support in school and at home. A social pedagogue or any other relevant person within the educational institution can therefore help pupils when trying to express or deal with emotions. The theoretical part of this diploma paper includes the definitions of emotions, emotional intelligence and its role in life, as well as the role of a social pedagogue in dealing with pupils’ emotions. The empirical part of the diploma paper focuses on the analysis of the systematic planning and implementation of effective emotion regulation strategies in pupils as well as the role of a social pedagogue in this process in schools where the interviewed social pedagogues work. The empirical research is based on five interviews with social pedagogues that work in schools as school counsellors. The analysis of the results showed that in the interviewees’ workplaces effective emotion regulation strategies are not systematically devised. It was also established that because of time constraints, teachers’ workload when trying to get through the school syllabus, and pupils’ workload due to other activities, this specific area does not receive enough attention or at least not as much attention as they would like to. However, it is clear that the obtained results cannot be generalised since the convenience sample is too small.
