Scale of Ethnocultural Empathy
This assessment measures: 1. Intellectual empathy, empathetic emotions and the communication between the two. 2. Empathetic feelings and expression; empathetic perspective-taking; acceptance of cultural differences; and empathetic awareness. CAUTION: Some practitioners feel that this instrument, as written centers "whiteness" and privilege, for that reason, it can be an excellent tool for some learners and a harmful tool for others*. We encourage you to read the questions carefully and to think about your learner audience before using this instrument.

*A similar tool which may be of interest if the SEE seems inappropriate for your learner group is the Generalized Ethnocentrism Scale (GENE), developed and validated by Neulip and McCroskey in 1997. [http://www.jamescmccroskey.com/publications/172.pdf]
