Marvin Maurer: The Compassion Interviews

Marvin Mauer (1929-2014) was a vanguard of teaching emotional intelligence in schools. Over thirty years ago, Mr. Maurer developed a “Feeling Words Curriculum” that not only helped students learn better, but also helped them to understand their own and others’ feelings more effectively.

In this interview we discuss:

  • The importance of emotional intelligence for humans of all ages
  • How we can increase compassion, integrity, and emotional intelligence in our children
  • The importance of having purpose in life
  • Over 80 years of practicing integrity and empathy
