Empathy and Mental Health shows mental health professionals how to employ a deeper understanding of subjective, objective, and interpersonal modalities of empathy in their practice.

Chapters are full of case studies and examples that demonstrate empathy’s role in challenging and complex encounters, and as each concept and process is introduced, Dr. Clark discusses strategies for responding empathically. The book has a sound theoretical grounding that is informed by extensive material on empathy and empathic understanding from the counseling and psychotherapy literature and related fields of inquiry.

Drawing from psychodynamic, existential-humanistic, cognitive behavioral, and other contemporary orientations, this text makes empathy immediately useful and understandable to students and practitioners.


"Empathy and Mental Health helps us examine the various ways we can use empathy in practice, inviting counselors and therapists to expand the scope of understanding empathy for building relational depth and influencing therapeutic processes. Through this critical and essential text, Arthur Clark continues to be a leading force in modern conceptualizations and applications of empathy in mental health."

Hannah B. Bayne, PhD, assistant professor, University of Florida

"Arthur J. Clark—the leading authority on empathy—does it again! This book supplies readers with a foundational, how-to guide for deepening the therapeutic relationship and enhancing an empathic understanding of a client by teasing apart dynamic modalities of empathy. With timely and relevant case examples, Empathy and Mental Health is an indispensable, must-have resource for students and practitioners alike."

Zachary D. Bloom, PhD, assistant professor, Northeastern Illinois University

"When it comes to writing a great book, Art Clark has checked all the boxes. If you want to read a text that will help you become a more effective mental health professional, read this one. Professor Clark takes readers through complex material in ways that will rivet their attention and ignite a passion for developing an empathic way of being. Carl Rogers would be proud."

John Sommers-Flanagan, PhD, professor, University of Montana
