Teaching Empathy

Care-A-Lot Learning Center

Instructor - Marcy Witherspoon, MSW, LSW 
2/17/16 - 5:30 PM - 8:30 PM (Eastern Time)

The role of empathy or “walking in somebody else’s shoes” will be explored in depth as we examine how empathy is developed and how adverse experiences and disrupted attachment can impede its full development. This course will focus on strategies to build compassion and empathy, increasing children’s self-regulatory skills and enhancing social emotional intelligence.

By the end of the session, participants will be able to:

  • Define empathy and discuss a child’s interpretation
  • Learn effective strategies to build empathy and compassion
  • Support children as they learn to express their emotions in a healthy, regulated manner
