Exercises in Empathy

Is empathy a skill we can learn?

Understanding empathy can be tricky - least of all differentiating it from sympathy. Through the work of neuro psychologists and academics, we explore its definition and real world application. Students can explore their own reactions to situations and judge for themselves the impact employing empathy can have. This is particularly helpful for students embarking on the reflective project and learning that multiple perspectives can be difficult to navigate. See this page as part of an 'empathy toolbox' for the students' personal development.
