Overview

This inspiring contribution to the helping professions delves into empathy as a cornerstone of personal life as well as professional practice. Renowned contributors from various mental health disciplines such as psychiatry, counseling, psychology, and social work discuss such themes as the interrelationship of empathy with love, self-awareness, and self-transformation. Highlights include the application of specific techniques such as the use of writing to foster empathy; empathy therapy with different populations, including children, adolescents, the elderly, and families; and how to bridge cultural differences in empathy therapy.
Among the innovative models of an empathic approach to therapy and training described are San Joaquin's Integrative Milieu Treatment, Accompanied Autoanalysis, and the Wrap-Around Model.
