The effect of short term empathy training on authoritarianism of a small private college faculty
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effects of short term empathy training on the faculty of a small, private college faculty. Specific attention is given to examining the effects of empathy training on the variables of authoritarianism and dogmatism. Several studies regarding empathy training were reviewed. It was found that a majority of the designs used in these studies limited their emphasis to the effect of training on increased empathy. Very little had been done to expand our knowledge to other variables.
