SEL Skill Spotlight: Learning How to Empathize with Others

27 September 2020

Empathizing with others is a critical skill of social and emotional learning. Now more than ever, we are committed to understanding, learning and developing this skill throughout our entire community. Here are some strategies from School-Connect (the company that provides our N.E.S.T. curriculum) that can be used at home and in your everyday lives to improve and reinforce the capacity to put yourself in the shoes of others!
* A great way you work on empathy with your children is to regularly ask “What do you think that person is feeling right now?” It can be a character in a story, an actor in a movie, a person met during the day, someone on television or online with a different perspective, or even a family member reacting to a significant event.
* As a step toward dealing with a conflict, work with your children on stating the problem from another person's perspective. (e.g., “Why do you think your brother thought it was his turn to choose a movie to watch?”)
* Model empathy skills in regular communication by recognizing your children’s feelings, trying to see the situation from his/her/their perspective, and mirroring their emotions in your facial expressions.
