Culture of Empathy Builder:  Patricia A. Jennings


Patricia A. Jennings & Edwin Rutsch: How to Build a Culture of Empathy in Education

Patricia (Tish) Jennings is Co-Leader of the "Program on Empathy Awareness and Compassion in Education (PEACE)" at Penn State University. "The PEACE area seeks to promote health and wellbeing in children, youth and families through the scientific understanding and promotion of awareness, compassion and empathy. The program includes faculty, research associates and students whose work focuses on developing a strong multidisciplinary science in this emerging area.

PEACE supports interdisciplinary scholarly activities ranging from theoretical essays to basic research on the development of awareness, compassion and empathy, to the design and evaluation of interventions intended to foster these attributes in individuals and relationships."
