Emotional intelligence is an important ability of a person that affects his development throughout his life. Therefore, the modern education system should focus on the formation of specialists with a high level of social and emotional skills. The purpose of this study is to characterize the importance of individual psychological methods in the development of emotional intelligence within the framework of modern Ukrainian education. For this, such methods as content analysis of literature, synthesis, generalization and comparison were used. On the basis of a critical approach to the selection of sources, relevant literature was selected for the study of this problem. The results showed that psychologists play an important role in the formation of social-emotional skills in the Ukrainian educational space. In particular, with the help of individual and group consultations, they contribute to the formation of emotion management skills in modern students of education. The conclusions emphasize the importance of the role of psychology and its methods in the formation of the emotional intelligence of modern education seekers. In particular, it has been determined that such psychological methods as the training of sensations, self-regulation, techniques for the development of empathy, behavioral-cognitive therapy contribute to the formation of stable emotional intelligence.
