A Mother's Wish Experiential Empathy Education (E3) Series #1: Role- Playing Real-Life Scenarios Faced by Families of Special Needs Youths and Adults with Challenging Behaviours

 

It is often said that a society is as strong as its weakest link. How we treat those in need of help is a reflection of our character. 

This project, "A Mother Wish’s Experiential Empathy Education (E3)", is a part of A Mother's Wish's (www.amotherswish.com.sg) endeavour to highlight the plight of families of special needs youths and adults with challenging behaviours (non-compliance, self-injury, aggression). 

Through role-playing, participants will be thrust into real-life scenarios faced by families of special needs youths and adults with challenging behaviours. Based on the facilitator's narrative and prompting of input from participants, we will consider the perspectives of the family members, the members of the public, and the special needs individual. We will also be challenged to come up with strategies to address the situation and witness their ramifications. Essentially, we have the time to play out different possible outcomes. 

Just as significantly, we will also move beyond addressing the scenarios to come up with follow-up solutions that can make a broader, longer-term change to society, in terms of changing our mindset and initiating long-lasting action.
