The Empathy Effect
February 20, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pmFree
Empathy is undergoing a new evolution. In a global and interconnected culture, we can no longer afford to identify only with people who seem to be a part of our “tribe.” As Dr. Helen Riess has learned, our capacity for empathy is not just an innate trait – it is also a skill that we can learn and expand. With The Empathy Effect (Sounds True), Dr. Riess presents a definitive resource on empathy: the science behind how it works, new research on how empathy develops from birth to adulthood, and tools for building your capacity to create authentic emotional connection with others.
