Empathy and Social Work Education: A Study
Keefe, Thomas
Journal of Education for Social Work, 11, 3, 69-75, F 75
The impact of professional social work education upon empathy was found, contrary to hypothesis, to be significantly positive. Students identified personal maturation, human behavior classes, and experiential parts of the curriculum as being most beneficial in enhancing empathy. The best students had highest empathy scores, and females higher than males. (Editor/JT)
