The Empathy Conference 2019

We started the 2019/2020 school year by gathering our growing network of trained facilitators together for the first time.

Empathy education matters!

The Empathy Conference was open to the 100 secondary school teachers and youth workers, from across the country, who had completed training up to that point.  The educators presented updates from the field and shared their Story Exchange practices.

They also heard from leading social and emotional development researchers: Prof. Billy O’Connor and  Dr Anca Minescu; as well as N4 ambassador/ writer Ruth Gilligan. We finished the evening by hosting a Storytelling evening at nearby 1314, Cecil Street, Limerick.
