Helping children develop greater empathy-related awareness and skill can help prevent negative social behaviors such as bullying, meanness, and alienation. Empathy is a fundamental social emotion because it brings a sense of emotional connection to others. It moves us past the self and into relational awareness. It is this awareness that is not only basic to all healthy relationships; it is the root of prosocial behavior, altruism, kindness and peace. Empathy has cognitive, affective and behavioral components that can be learned and improved upon by children. Each topic-related lesson includes five inviting worksheets that can be reproduced and used repeatedly with elementary school-aged students.
