How might we develop an empathic way of being?
Healing, Creativity, Innovation - Free Empathy Session

Dear Supporters

In the last newsletter I mentioned I'll be focusing on developing an online empathy training curriculum. It is important for the survival of the planet to support these values. One initiative we are developing is the;

Empathy Training Literature Review Project
This online team holds regular meetings to gather, research, share, discuss, empathize with, and analyze academic based papers, articles and studies about teaching and training empathy. We are;

  • building an awesome wiki website with these training resources.
  • creating a meta-analysis study, typology and paper from our findings.

We especially invite the academic community; professors, graduate students, researchers, as well as, empathy training practitioners to join this project.

A second initiative is an 8 hour online workshop, Introduction to Human-Centered Design and Empathy that I'll be facilitating on April 16 and 23. This is all about learning to use deep listening and understanding as a gateway to creativity and innovation. There is still space available.  Check video of the last workshop.  Stay tuned.

A 10 min video about why I feel we need to develop an online empathy training curriculum and Massive Open Online Courses MOOC)

"An empathic way of being can be learned from empathic persons. Perhaps the most important statement of all is that the ability to be accurately empathic is something which can be developed by training.

Therapists, parents and teachers can be helped to become empathic. This is especially likely to occur if their teachers and supervisors are themselves individuals of sensitive understanding.

It is most encouraging to know that this subtle, elusive quality, of utmost importance in therapy, is not something one is "born with", but can be learned, and learned most rapidly in an empathic climate. " Carl Rogers
