Sympathy, Empathy, and Compassion: Preschool Concepts and Strategies (Part 1 of 2) Sylvia Kennedy-Godin

Special Topics: Advanced Specialized Care ,
Sponsor: Hartford Early Childhood Professionals Network
Instructor: Dr. Ray Chin

Part 1: Preschoolers are transitioning from ego-centric socio-centric thinking, that is, they are beginning to see the world beyond their own perspective. This neuro-developmental progress can be defined by sympathy, empathy and compassion. We will discuss the differences among these three and ways to train young children to know and practice them. Teaching these concepts better prepares children to function in families and society, and is proactive to avoid harsh discipline-based strategies. Parts 2, 3, and 4: Participants will learn the techniques of non-violent communication (NVC) in order to teach young children how to empathize (express feelings and needs) and respond with compassionate acts.
