Charles Smith, Gina Mcgovern, Gina McGovern

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

Describes how a key way to develop empathy is to have students share their own experiences and listen to each other's stories. Through listening to, understanding, and identifying with the experiences of others, young people build bridges across differences, and they learn about themselves in the process. Having opportunities to listen and be listened to can be transformative. As a young person said about a program that emphasizes telling your own stories: “This program, there's so much honesty. It's like you learn to be honest with yourself and the people around you, and everyone's listening for once.”
