Empathy is an important competence to be developed because empathy is the basis of social skills that can makes individual will have better social interaction and be able to socialize. Symbolic modeling technique is a technique in guidance and counseling to provide assistance by observing the behavior through video, film, pictures and stories. This research’s purpose was to test the effectiveness of symbolic modeling technique in developing the empathy of students of 8th Grader of a Junior High School in Indonesia in 2015/2016 academic year. The method used was quasi experiment with nonequivalent control group research design. The data was analyzed by using nonparametric statistics through Mann-Whitney test. Based on the Mann-Whitney test in the experimental group, the significance value is 0.005. The value of significance is smaller than α = 0.05, means that there is a significant difference between the experimental group’s pre-test and post-test data. While in the control group, the significance value of Mann Whitney test result is 0.857. The value of significance is greater than α = 0.05, means that there is no significant difference between the control group's pre-test and post-test data. Thus, show that the symbolic modeling technique is effective to develop the students’ empathy.
