Developing Empathy: Feeling With
Sympathy is feeling sorry for someone; empathy is feeling with someone. People don’t generally want others to feel sorry for them, but we all need people who can understand us and feel with us, alongside us. This session will help us be good friends, have compassion who are different from us, and be able to have good conversations with people with whom we disagree.
