The Empathy Framework

Created by Empatico, the Empathy Framework is a tool that takes the current science one step further by recognizing there are also different levels of application. These include practicing empathy toward oneself, toward others and toward the rest of the world.

By understanding the different dimensions of empathy and each of the 9 skills within them, educators can help their students develop the empathy they need to build positive connections with others and create a more compassionate world together.

Nine skills that connect students with:
