Empathy: Turning Feelings and Beliefs into Action

Empathy: Turning Feelings and Beliefs into Action | Parenting and Education | Scoop.it

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.
