Ode to Empathy

See on Scoop.itBullying to Empathy Education Project

The discussion around empathy seems to be growing exponentially. From the huge splash Brené Brown is making with her work on shame, vulnerability and empathy to Jeremy Rifkin’s vision of our moving towards an Empathic Civilization,empathy is becoming a 21st century buzzword. And rightfully so.With the emergence of a global civilization, we need to move beyond the “us and them” mentality that lends itself to so much conflict, violence, and self-destruction. An absolutely essential ingredient for this is empathy.  by Jen Hinton  See on www.resilience.org
