Compassion and youth at risks

Dr. Rony Berger of Tel Aviv University, and Dr. Yotam Heineberg of Stanford University’s Center for Compassion and Altruism, Research and Education will deliver a workshop on ERASE-Stress Pro Social, a highly scalable teacher mediated programme, aimed at reducing stress, and increasing compassion.

Led by Dr. Berger earlier stress focused versions of this programme have been implemented worldwide with aprox. 50,000 children. A recent pilot application with Jewish and Arab children has shown reduction not only in stress, but also in prejudice/racism towards the outgroup members.
