πŸ’¬ Vulnerability and Empathy

Replied Vulnerability by Corrie (cbarclay.global2.vic.edu.au)
Empathy is about feeling with people and understanding with emotion the plight they may be in. It takes a true human connection to be made for empathy to be real and genuine. It is that empathetic connection that makes the feeling of being vulnerable better.
Nice post to start back on Corrie. Whether it be restorative practice or positive education, the emotional side seems to something we are addressing more and more today. I wrote about emotions and coaching last year. One of my concerns with this area is that it becomes another thing to typecast students (and teachers) with. See for example PISA’s move into pyschometric testing.
