January Wellness Works Newsletter : Empathy

Posted January 14, 2022

Hello parents, guardians and families!
This month we are exploring the theme of EMPATHY with students as a part of their mental
health skill building. Empathy is about being able to consider what someone else may be going
through and imagining how they might be feeling or thinking. It is about walking in another
person’s shoes – about listening to another perspective non-judgmentally. It’s about voicing
our understanding of their emotions and validating them. It’s about recognizing the humanity
of others and challenging ourselves to be present. Empathy is often the first step towards
compassionate action and helping others.
