Why Create Compassionate Communities?
At a time when rates of bullying behaviors, school shootings and suicides are at shocking highs; social isolation, depression and anxiety afflict youth at younger ages; and empathy and trust are decreasing for young and old alike, we need professional support and guidance to develop more caring relationships with our selves and others.
My empathy games help create caring relationships in school classrooms, families and workplaces so that bullying behaviors are eliminated, replaced by kindness and supportive behaviors. Together we can transform hurtful behaviors into more compassionate action in your schools, family and for your self
