Have you ever wondered what it would be like to know what someone else might be thinking? Wouldn’t it be nice to understand why people can have such different opinions about the very same thing? Each of us looks at the world around us from our own point of view or from the shoes in which we stand. However, it is possible to try on another person’s shoes in order to see why things look differently from where they are standing. Changing our shoes, or our perspective, gives us the chance to understand other people better and to learn new things.

Students in this program will have opportunities to:

  • Practice recognizing situations that can elicit primary emotions.
  • Develop understanding of what others are thinking and feeling.
  • Describe personal situations in which they felt specific emotions.
  • Recognize that other people have likes and dislikes different from their own.
