About the Event
This 6-hour workshop will be offered in-person at MITC Training Center in Albuquerque, NM. We will also offer an online option for those not wanting or able to attend in person.
How well do you really know that people around you? A capacity for empathic understanding is hard-wired in our brains, but its full expression involves particular listening skills that are seldom learned through ordinary experience. Based on the 2018 book, "Listening Well: The Art of Empathic Understanding", this class will offer clear explanations, specific examples, and practical exercises for developing your skillfulness in empathic listening. We will discuss skills for expressing accurate empathy clearly and for strengthening therapeutic relationships as well as other close relationships in your life. Through empathic understanding, you have access to life experience far beyond your own, and over time, listening well and deeply becomes a way of being.
