Most people believe you are either born with empathy or you aren’t. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Empathy is a skill that can be learned and developed. Whether you are new to the field, or have decades of experience, we invite you to come learn on how to demonstrate empathy with others and create connections with those you serve.
