1. What Does Empathy Got To Do With It?  -  Listen to Podcast

   For many of us engaged in conflict or embroiled in a dispute, it can be very difficult to muster up empathy and compassion for the other side.  The longer the conflict goes unresolved it seems the less empathy we have for them as a human being. In this first of our four episode series–Conflict and Empathy: Where Has Empathy and Compassion Gone?– we will introduce the “wheel of empathy” and the “feel of empathy” as

defined by Edwin Rutsch, Founder of a global empathy movement called The Center for Building a Culture of Empathy.  We will also discuss how compassion intertwines with empathy and set the foundation for how you build empathy.
 

Questions

  • Let’s start by sharing with listeners about how you got started in this work of building a culture of empathy and creating the Center.

  • Given that this is the first episode in our series Conflict and Empathy, let’s set the stage and define some of these concepts.

    • What exactly is empathy and the intention behind it?

    • How is empathy different from sympathy?

    • How does compassion intertwine with empathy?

  • We said that we would introduce two concepts…the “wheel of empathy” and the “feel of empathy.” What is important to know about these concepts?

  •  How do these wheels tie into the Empathy Circles you host through Google Hangouts?
