Empathy Is Tough to Teach, But Is One Of the Most Important Life Lessons
KQED provides a well crafted summary of Brene Brown’s teachings and links to related content.
In particular we appreciate the statement:
“Dr. Brown says empathy consists of four qualities: the ability to take the perspective of another person, staying away from judgment, recognizing emotion in others, and communicating it. She defines empathy as “feeling with people,” and notes that it’s a “vulnerable choice” because it requires a person to tap into something personal that identifies with the struggle of another.”
