Welcome to the Turnaround for Children Toolbox! Please tell us about your professional role so we can learn about our community and provide you with the most relevant tools and resources.

My role is:

Supporting Students and School Communities Through Crisis

Empathetic Listening Strategies

Positive developmental relationships with students aren’t built by just being nice; they’re built through consistent interactions that build trust. Empathetic listening helps support the development of trusting relationships through committed attention, non-judgment, and probing to understand.

This tool outlines strategies to engage in empathetic listening with students, families/caregivers, and other adults.
