The Power of Outrospection

This video provides a stimulus for students and other learners to expand their understanding  of empathy.

It is published online by RSA , a non-profit organisation 'working to meet 21st century challenges by showcasing ideas, undertaking innovative research and building civic capacity around the world'.
