Roots of Empathy featured on CNN series on bullying

Roots of Empathy (ROE) was featured on CNN’s American Morning’s “Stop Bullying: Speak Up” series last week. In the story, ROE’s founder, Mary Gordon, speaks of the train of thought that led to the creation of the organization: “There’s something so engaging between watching the love between a parent and a baby, and since that relationship of attachment and attunement is how we develop our empathy, I thought, well, why not bring the teachers in, the tiny teachers?” Gordon said. “And I just knew in my gut — it was a by-golly approach — but now we have a scientific evidence of impact.”
McConnell grantee Roots of Empathy has garnered a lot of press coverage across North America in 2010. The organization has been featured in TIME Magazine, The New York Times, and The Globe and Mail.
