dc.description.abstract This study concerns empathy as the central skill required by social workers in the development of helping relationships with their clients. A literature study enabled the candidate to select an appropriate model within which a programme directed at the improvement of empathic skills at the primary level of the helping process was designed. An experimental and a control group, each consisting of social work practitioners, were tested for the purposes of ascertaining their initial levels of empathic response to clients. This was followed by the participation of the experimental group in the programme. A month after the program was completed both groups were retested and the necessary statistical analysis applied to the results. The program was found to have had a statistically beneficial effect on the social workers level of empathic responses. Recommendations pertaining to empathy as an essential component in the equipment of a social worker include the introduction of empathy to students at the undergraduate level, emphasis on empathy in the continuing education of all practising social workers, and that further research be done on the use of empathy in the other stages of the helping process. en
