Video of the Week: "Brené Brown on Empathy"

Whenever tragedy strikes, it's hard to know what to say. How to comfort. How to love. I find that I'm always trying to make it better. In this video, Brené Brown does a great job of explaining empathy and how we might enter in it. 

Here are a few things I'm thinking after watching this video: 

  • How can I take on the perspective of those around me, especially my students? 
  • How can we work to stop judging people and the way they feel? 
  • What are some of the "at leasts" you use? 
  • "Rarely, can a response make something better. What makes' something better is connection."
