“Empathy is a choice.” – Brene Brown
When we choose to empathize with somebody, we make a vulnerable choice, because we have to connect with something in ourselves that knows that feeling. When we choose to empathize with the children we work with, we choose to help them communicate the feelings they are feeling, but they cannot name. Puppets can help us by supporting our children to express feelings they otherwise might keep dormant or suppress. Puppets can put a smile on a child’s face. Puppets help adults become silly, be a child again, and explore the unknown.
Join me in this interactive workshop and learn more about empathy and puppets. Bring your creativity! You will need it to create your very own puppet.
