Teaching Children Empathy

Published in 2007, this book provides teachers, counselors, school social workers, psychologists, and other professional caregivers with a variety of activities to help K-6 students think about and practice strategies to foster empathy, connectedness with others, and perspective-taking, helping school personnel to teach students to value empathy, recognize the feelings of others, share in those feelings, and give thoughtful responses to others’ feelings while demonstrating understanding and acceptance through games, role-plays, discussions, and reproducible worksheets. Lessons follow a progression or hierarchy of skills, but can be used independently.
