Youth Support Group on: Empathy

Last saturday was ADJ Young Support Group of May. In this meeting we prepared an exercise to practise empathy with those around, who doesn´t have diabetes.

Fisrt, each person selected a picture from a wall to meka a personal presentation and telling the group why did they select that picture in particular.

After, the participants were exposed to a hypothetical situation in which they had to answer, for example, what would they tell a person (without diabetes) who is interested in someone with diabetes, what they would like to say to someone who´s travelling with a friend with diabetes, and so on.

Many topics were raised and it was a  very very very active group with such a power and energy! I´ve learned a lot with the people I met in this group, each one with their own background, experiences and challenges.
