This chapter focuses on the relationship between social competence and the empathy-related responding capabilities of children and adolescents. Studies show that there is a possibility of alteration in the quality of social interactions because of sympathy and empathy, and there are more opportunities for children with high-quality social interactions. The chapter discusses the role of development in improving empathy-related responding, as well as the effect of gender and socioeconomic status on the association of social competence and empathy-related responding. It also presents an experiment designed to test the social skills training effects on empathy and sympathy.

Keywords:   social competence, empathy-related responding, social interactions, gender, socioeconomic status, social skills training
