Roots of Empathy's mission is build caring, peaceful and civil societies through the development of empathy in children and adults. Through the course of the schoolyear, weekly visits with a mother and child illustrate bonding behaviour and empathetic communication. Roots instructor extends the conversation through literature, art activities, and sharing circles- asking children to think on how they can treat each other with empathy. Emotional literacy, non-verbal communication skills, and self awareness are gently guided and explored. BIG THANK YOU TO BRENT WILKEN, CORTES ISLAND SCHOOL- and of course- ROOTS MAMA CHELSEA BADGER and OUR ROOTS BABY CAIN. Brought to Cortes thanks to CCHA, Family Support Program. It is my pleasure to participate in this essential program ! Odette
