What’s the difference between empathy & sympathy?

Here is an interesting video on the difference between empathy and sympathy. I found this while scrolling through tweets by @SirKenRobinson.

I thought this could be useful if you were discussing emotions with students as part of Health or Pastoral Care.

On a side note if you go to the home page and scroll down to the bottom of the blog you can look through tweets by @SirKenRobinson @DylanWiliam @EMPIRIEDUCATOR and @aitsl.

One thought on “What’s the difference between empathy & sympathy?

  1. Wow pretty powerful. Good one to use when counselling students as well.

    If our students could grasp this concept what powerful adults they would become in our society.
