Empathy Training Literature Review and Wiki

Premise: For the universal well-being of all individuals, societies and relationships, empathy needs to be increased through modeling, education, training, practice and social systems re-design. 

 An initial prototype and test site. Do join our team to build this empathy training wiki.  This is part of our Empathy Training Curriculum Design Project.

Our team holds regular meetings to gather, research, share, discuss, 'empathize with', analyze and organize academic based papers, articles and studies about teaching and training empathy. We are;
  • Building a website with these empathy training resources.You can add papers to our database with the Input Form
  • Creating a meta-analysis study and paper from our findings. This project supports the development of our Empathy Training and Curriculum project
We especially invite the academic community, professors, Phds, graduate students, researchers, as well as, empathy training practitioners to join our team. This project is a way for researchers to more effectively build on each others work.
