EMPATHY

FOR

YOUTH

Classes for children and teenagers to learn how to understand, share, process, and resolve their inner and outer conflicts through therapeutic art, drama, mindfulness and non-violent language techniques.

Our Modules
Module 1 (Intrapersonal Knowledge)
To empathize with others, one must first understand oneself. The first module equips students with a toolkit for the practice of self-reflection, self-compassion, and self-regulation when conflicts arise. 
Module 2 (Interpersonal Knowledge)
When young people are in pain, they need love, support, and understanding from others. But many respond to negative emotions by shutting down or acting in destructive ways that repel those who might help them. This module provides students with strategies to empathize with others and communicate their needs with clarity and compassion.
Our Story
We began from the childhood hurt that we struggled to heal. We then aspired to provide a listening space that we imagined to have as children and teenagers. We want young people to have a supportive space to openly share their thoughts and problems. We want to offer practical tools to help them better understand themselves and the world around them. We want to share with them all the strategies and methods we studied, which have proven to work for us- not only as practitioners but also as healing individuals. Our empathic pedagogy aims to guide our students to learn how to empathize with themselves so they can independently solve their inner and outer conflicts. We want our students to care for themselves and everything else that coexists;
in order to build a more empathic world.
