Caversham invites you to join in celebrating the release of Developing Empathy: A Biopsychosocial Approach to Understanding Compassion for Therapists and Parents
Thursday, June 22nd, Reception 6:30 - 8:30 pm
Empathy is valued across cultures, and has a profound impact on psychotherapy, our children, and our world. Why then are many human relationships not empathetic? This volume describes in detail the neurobiological, psychological, and social elements involved with empathy. Ideas are brought to life with case examples and reflective questions which help the reader learn ways to overcome empathetic barriers. The book shows how fear, anger, and anxiety all take away the power to feel for others, while also looking at the topic through a global lens. Developing Empathy is an easy-read book, backed by science, useful to the clinician, and to all readers interested in the topic.
