In order to help children develop empathy, we first have to truly understand it ourselves. This workshop will take a deep dive into empathy and will explore the following questions: what is empathy, what are the different types of empathy, how does it differ from sympathy, why are boundaries important, and what are the roadblocks that get in the way of empathy? Understanding the answers to these questions form the foundation to being truly empathic yourself, which is a prerequisite for being able to teach empathy to children in the classroom.
