The Power of Empathy

What is empathy?  It is understanding, relating to or identifying with another person’s experiences and emotions or the ability to share someone else’ feelings.  Empathy makes a person feel you understand or relate to what they are going through.  Empathy is connection with another person.

Empathy involves: 1) Perspective-taking, 2)being non-judgmental towards the person, 3) recognize the emotion, and 4) communicating that emotion to the person.
