Despite my well-justified policies, I still had to work to manage my empathic response so it didn't lead me into unhealthy helping.
So getting back to my client, here are the tips I shared with him about being empathic without being perceived as being weak:
Empathic communication skills * Foster a supportive, respectful environment * Listen actively * Recognise emotion and non-verbal cues * Be curious-explore patients' perspectives with open questions * Allow patients to talk about their feelings, without judgement * Be aware of your own emotions * Check understanding and assumptions with the patient
We easily develop Filipino workers to become empathic through guidance, training, and practice.
In this section, we examine evidence in support of the view that what initially distinguished our species, prior to the language capacity, was an empathic and abstract form of thinking that did not depend on explicit symbolic representation.
* Empathic attunement (therapist awareness of the moment-to-moment experience of the client)
The results showed that patients with spouses who responded to their expressions of pain with empathic behaviours on a daily basis showed improved physical function 6 and 18 months later relative to patients with less empathic spouses.
Patterns associated with empathic care, for instance, overlapped with systems in the brain associated with value and reward, such as the ventromedial prefrontal cortex and the medial orbitofrontal cortex.
This is a universal response called resonance, and it is a fundamental component of our empathic response to others.
