Here is the acclaimed program for fostering empathy and emotional literacy in childrenâ€”with the goal of creating a more civil society, one child at a time. Roots of Empathyâ€”an evidence-based program developed in 1996 by long-time educator and social entrepreneur Mary Gordonâ€”has already reached more than 270,000 children in Canada, the U.S., Japan, Australia, New Zealand, and elsewhere. Now, as The New York Times reports that â€śempathy lessons are spreading everywhere amid concerns over the pressure on students from high-stakes tests and a race to college that starts in kindergarten,â€ť Mary Gordon explains the value of and how best to nurture empathy and social and emotional literacy in all childrenâ€”and thereby reduce aggression, antisocial behavior, and bullying.
