  • What We Say Matters
    Words express our emotions, what we are thinking and feeling. Those emotions are read by others, and influence how others respond to us. Our words matter.

    Have you ever wondered about your ancestors and what was it like for them to come to this country? Now use empathy to imagine that they were coming today.

  • When We Don’t Apologize
    Mistakes happen. How do we get past them and repair the damage? Apologizing is an important way. And empathy plays a big part in helping us apologize.

  • Empathy Is More Than “I Hear You”

Empathy Is More Than “I Hear You”
There is no one place in the brain where empathy happens.

"My goal in starting this blog is to share knowledge about the complexity of empathy, to teach about the components that make up empathy, to show how we can engage in better levels of interpersonal and social empathy, and to explain why we would want to do that. With greater levels of interpersonal and social empathy, we can relate better to one another individually and in groups, and create public policies that address societal concerns. Although empathy is complex and it takes effort to fully learn how to be empathic, the reward for doing so is great, for us and our communities. I look forward to sharing more about what I have learned over the years."
