Very good inviting, welcoming opening and affirming feedback to participant comments. Overall, good presence of safety and acceptance. Those are all important aspects of creating a safe space.
Very well. Frequently referred back to skills and practices that cultivate empathic concern. One example was tying a participant's comments about knowing and being back to received knowledge and embodied knowledge. Very good circling back.
Overall, very well. This is a difficult thing to do, explaining activities that you are not going to actually lead in this setting. Good work asking participants for their insights on the PowerPoint images and definitions before moving to an explanation of CIT perspectives. Good feedback and answers to participant input, particularly when asked about the misuse of cognitive empathy.
Tying affective empathy and cognitive empathy together and both being necessary was insightful and important. Great question to participants asking how gaining more empathy for our in-group can actually become harmful for members of our out-groups. Good job using this opportunity to amplify/reinforce Michael's earlier comments about the afflictive nature of both the positive and negative biases.
Give trigger warning before difficult exercises/activities (like "Dragon Mom") before introducing them, not after discussion begins.
