Recent studies have shown that there has been a decline in empathy in young adults over the last 10 years.

In this workshop we will discuss the implications of this research and demonstrate some techniques that will help college students or employees to develop more empathy.
Empathy is an important part of emotional intelligence that can be developed in most people. Researchers have found that a person’s Emotional Intelligence (EQ) is four times as likely to predict their success in life than their IQ.

You will take part in group discussions, watch short video demonstrations and participate in group activities that will help you develop your skills in assisting your students to increase their empathy.

Let’s make the world kind again!
