Evaluation of a Self-Instructional Mini-Course on Empathic Responding.
Kozma, Robert B.; Bertcher, Harvey
Studies of interpersonal helping processes have identified accurate empathic understanding as a skill significantly associated with effective helping. In recent years empathy training has become something of a fad, often involving expensive, time consuming marathon weekends. In reaction to this trend a self-instructional package was designed to teach empathic reponding. Results indicate that materials were effective in both individual and small group versions. There was no difference on judges' rating of performance of students taking materials individually or in small groups. Students' ratings of performance did not correlate with judges' ratings.
