Abstract:   

"The problem involved in this study was to determine the effects of two different training modalities upon the empathic skills of 42 undergraduate college students who had selected some helping profession as career goal. An experimental design was developed wherein the 42 subjects were randomly assigned to two experimental groups and control group. 

One experimental group was given 16 hours of didactic instructions in empathy skills, the other experimental group was subjected to 16 hours of training in meditation. 

The control group participated in music listening activities during the training period. Post-test empathy scores for the two experimental groups were compared to each other and to the control group...."
