Empathy Enhancement for Helping Professionals

Examines the uses of theatre in the classroom, particularly as a form of creative simulation to address the declining levels of empathy documented in students from helping professions. This is a teaching application that analyzes the concept, meaning, and essence of empathy as an experiential approach to attain best practice in occupations where effectiveness is highly correlated with the practitioner’s ability to listen, interpret, connect and relate to the experiences of others.
