Empathy mapping is an essential aspect of creating an effective bullying prevention model. An empathy map is a qualitative research process that captures knowledge about student’s, teacher’s, and parent’s behaviors and attitudes. Empathy mapping is a powerful school improvement process that is the centerpiece of creating a dynamic school environment. IINII uses an innovative Design Thinking process that braids together the perceptions of students, staff, and parents to develop a road map used to facilitate impactful Talk-Circles. Talk-Circles are a fundamental element of creating a vibrant social, and emotionally centered school community.
