Perhaps a child resists classroom routines or expectations, a team member rubs you the wrong way, or a parent challenges program practices. Sometimes, difficult moments offer us rich opportunities, especially when a deeper sense of empathy gives us insights and tools to respond productively. Explore diverse aspects of empathy as a powerful tool for enriching relationships, exercise your empathy skills, and foster a culture of equity and understanding in your early childhood environment.
This Out of the Box Training is based on the Exchange magazine article: “Developing Empathy to Promote Equity in Early Childhood Settings,” by Lea Ann Christenson, Leah S. Muccio, and Kevin McGowan.
Target Audience: Intermediate to advanced caregivers and educators who are working with young children (birth through 8 years).
