The Healing Power of Empathy
Empathy helps youth heal yet, all too often, parents and professionals see children through a lens of sympathy. Sympath, while well-inteded, sees children as damaged, or at least more damaged than us. Thus, we can see their behaviors through pity or resentment. This distorted lens of sympathy views youth as 'aliens', where their feelings, throughts and actions are completely dissimilar to our own. This lively training is designed to help participants decrease sympathy and increase sympathy.
