Compassionate Listening for Schools, Part I – YouTube

This is part 1 of a 14-minute video made by the students at St. Francis of Assisi Middle School in Louisville, KY, where Compassionate Listening is being taught.

Award-winning seventh grade science teacher Fred Whittaker created the “Familiae Pacis” program at St. Francis, based on the Five Practices of Compassionate Listening. In this peace education program, students are given opportunities to express themselves as people of action as they develop, manage, and engage in local and global service projects.
