"Almost 600 professionals and 300 young people gathered over
three days at the first Empathy and Compassion in Society conference in
London in November 2012. The conference asks what happens when we choose to
put compassion at the very centre of our professional lives, and whether it
is possible to cultivate compassion."
Empathy and Compassion in Society Conference will address
three topics: 1. Compassion and empathy: scientific definitions, misunderstandings and
function. 2. Compassion, the benefits at the personal level. 3. Compassion in action and social cohesion
