How to help children understand and embrace empathy - webinar

EVENTS 10 Oct 2023, 7:00pm

We are delighted to extend an invitation for you to join us in another informative well-being webinar hosted by Haileybury. This October, our focus centres on the invaluable topic of nurturing emotional intelligence in children, hosted by Diane Furusho Deputy Principal Student Wellbeing. Joining Diane for an informative conversation will be Mark Harrop and Henry Bell, two experienced Haileybury leaders.

Emotional intelligence, a cornerstone of human understanding, is evident in various aspects of our lives, from handling challenging emotions to forming meaningful connections with others. As children grow, this skill evolves, offering them ways of displaying empathy, the ability to understand others and a solid foundation for future success.

Irrespective of the context, the significance of emotional intelligence remains steadfast. Guided by guardians, families, and schools, children can develop this essential skill from their earliest stages of growth.

During the event, we will explore various topics, including:

  • Harnessing literature and narratives
  • Mastering the art of meaningful conversations
  • Recognising acts of empathy
  • Demonstrating empathy as a role model
  • Grasping empathy's benefits

We invite you to join us for this informative discussion, where we will explore how everyday interactions provide unique opportunities to cultivate and harness the profound value of emotional intelligence. Parents and guardians, this is a journey you won't want to miss.
