Culture of Empathy Builder:  Stephanie Bachmann Mattei

Stephanie Mattei & Edwin Rutsch: How to Build a Culture of Empathy in the Family

Stephanie Bachmann Mattei is a Certified Trainer with The Center for Nonviolent Communication. Parenting is Stephanie’s niche. Parenting is a powerful and far-reaching tool for social transformation. Mahatma Gandhi’s said, "If we are to reach real peace in the world, we shall have to begin with the children.” Parenting is one of the most crucial ways to bring about social change in terms of consciousness evolution. We are moving toward a more empathic child rearing.

How to Build a Culture of Empathy?

Presently the three main unempathic "Parenting Tools" are; Corporal Punishment, Guilt and Shame inducing communication (verbal and non-verbal), behavior modification through rewards carrots and sticks.  Research show these approaches do not foster empathy and emotional intelligence. In order to change a habit, we need to know what to put in its place. We need an empathic parenting approach.
