Roots of Empathy is an international, evidence-based classroom program that has shown a significant effect in reducing levels of aggression among school children by raising social/emotional competence and increasing empathy. A trained Roots of Empathy instructor coaches students to observe the baby’s development and to label the baby’s feelings. In this experiential learning, the baby is the teacher and a lever, which the instructor uses to help children identify and reflect on their own feelings and the feelings of others.
