This document presents the characteristics of the "Knowing emotions" programme, a proposal by Afundacion with the support of Matia Instituto, which improves psychological well-being through the acquisition of emotional competences in older people in the espazos+60 age group.

The evaluation of the programme's impact has followed a mixed methodological approach, combining qualitative and quantitative techniques. This publication includes the most important aspects of this analysis, such as the configuration of the programme, the innovative elements of this intervention, the profiles of the participants, as well as the results obtained in the evaluation.

Figures such as the fact that 86% of the participants obtained positive results or that 2 out of 3, 69%, improved their well-being, corroborate the hypothesis that acquiring emotional competences is an extraordinarily useful tool for improving well-being throughout life.
