PICTURE OF THE WEEK
ARTICLE OF THE WEEK
As part of our year long #YHTCommunity theme on empathy, students are benefiting from empathy training sessions from skilled our psychology team. Over the course of this year, students have become very familiar with the term empathy, delving into what it means, and how to try to incorporate feelings of empathy into daily interactions. Through this workshop, students are learning to think about different perspectives as well as understand that each individual internalizes things differently. Focusing on one's face and body language or asking questions such as "How did that make you feel?" give us insight regarding friends' feelings. Students are encouraged to use these strategies to help them plan for next steps when navigating social encounters. We are proud of the effort and enthusiasm from our students and thank our psychology team for their efforts!
