The Children Massaging Children (CMC) programme has been developed in New Zealand by the Childcare Connection Trust, a registered charity. Most people would react with surprise or disbelief at the concept of empathy being taught in schools; however, this idea is more than mere wishful thinking. The idea of teaching children empathy has been the subject of extensive research in New Zealand and also the focus of at least two Master's degree theses in Poland.
Child Connection is a registered charity that aims to introduce Children Massaging Children(CMC) program into the education and health systems in order to reduce stress, decrease depression and violence and prevent social pathologies.
