Teens today are 40% less empathetic than they were 30 years ago, often with devastating consequences. Dr. Michele Borba will pinpoint the forces causing the empathy crisis. With examples from years of research, she will offer a framework that yields successful, happy kids who grow up to be kind, moral, courageous and resilient adults.
