EP16: Bringing Empathy to the Classroom with Sara Lane - Roots of Empathy Canada
Play • 48 min

No matter how old we are, emotions are part of our lives. Yet, expressing our own feelings and relating to other people doesn't always come easy. It's a skill we need to learn and develop.
Roots of Empathy has developed a unique curriculum to increase empathy and emotional literacy for children aged five to thirteen.
Their programme helps children to express their feelings and to learn to recognize feelings in others. But it does more than that: it reduces bullying behaviour and it promotes resilience and positive mental health - as independent university research proves.
Join my conversation with Sara Lane, the Director of Research and Curriculum of Roots of Empathy, and find out why empathy matters and plays a key role in creating caring, peaceful, and civil societies.
