Product Description

About Using the Empathy Dolls Approach

This book features a discussion of the definition of empathy, its
historical roots and its use today. It looks at research which focuses
on the links between lack of empathy and aggressive and antisocial
behaviours and also the impact of developing empathy on decreasing
these behaviours. It includes details of the development of the
empathy dolls approach and some of the feedback on its impact upon
children and their emotional development. A 'must' for anyone with an
interest in empathy dolls and their role in early years settings!


“'This book is full of case studies illustrating how empathy dolls have been used by early years practitioners, in nursery and childminder settings, to help children to explore common feelings and situations....includes advice on how to introduce a doll into your own setting and how to use it to build links between the nursery and home.'” –  Nursery World (September 2010)
