PSYCH 515 Week 6 DQ 3
I once heard about an elementary school that taught empathy training to reduce bullying. Part of the training consisted of having the school children observe a loving mother interact with her infant. I thought that this was a very creative way of teaching empathy, as modeling is a very direct learning method. The training reminded me of Emotional Intelligence Training, which has relevance to the prevention and treatment of childhood and adolescent disorders. This video features Daniel Goleman, Ph.D., an internationally renowned psychologist who has made significant contributions to the field of Emotional Intelligence.
