A Viewpoint about the "Limits of Empathy"

 

In my workshops and writings I have consistently emphasized the importance of empathy as an essential skill for enriching our lives. In books I have co-authored with my close friend and colleague Dr. Sam Goldstein, such as Raising Resilient Children and The Power of Resilience: Achieving Balance, Confidence, and Personal Strength in Your Life, we devote chapters to the concepts of empathy and empathic communication as key ingredients involved in the development of positive relationships and resilience. Psychologist Dr. Daniel Goleman has highlighted empathy as an integral component of both "emotional intelligence" and "social intelligence."

 

My first two website articles, which were written in February and March, 1999, examined the concept of empathy.

Empowering women through ICT

Each project is presented within their local context, with detailed country profiles provided. The impact of the project on women is discussed at length before each section concludes with a summation of the challenges faced and a way forward. Themes that arose from the projects’ feedback and assessments included the empowering potential of ICT for women, and its ability to combine with traditional knowledge to archive and communicate skills for future generations. Literacy rates were improved among those women who participated, and the training allowed activists to then spread skills further to others.
