WAVE Trust

WAVE imageWoking Quakers has just received a newletter from WAVE Trust (Worldwide Alternatives to ViolencE). This charity is dedicated to reducing the key root causes of interpersonal violence: child neglect and maltreatment.

WAVE asserts that extensive research highlights the crucial nature of experience from conception to age 3 in the formation of seriously violent personalities, largely because of the sensitive nature of the infant brain during these formative years. The newsletter talks about the Roots of Empathy programme, which teaches empathic parenting to school children in order to prepare them for their future as parents.
