Présentation de l'éditeur

What if there were a single skill that could directly and radically improve your relationships and your emotional life? Empathy, teaches Karla McLaren, is that skill. With The Art of Empathy, she teaches us how to perceive and feel the experiences of others with clarity and authenticity—to connect with them more deeply and effectively.

Informed by current insights from neuroscience, social psychology, and healing traditions, this book explores:

  • Why empathy is not a mystical phenomenon but a natural, innate ability that we can strengthen and develop
  • How to identify and regulate our emotions and boundaries
  • The process of shifting into the perspective of others
  • How to provide support in a sensitive and healthy way
  • Insights for navigating our hyper-connected social landscape
  • Targeted chapters for improving family, workplace, and intimate relationships
  • Ways to expand our empathy to our community, global levels of society, and the natural world

More than ever, reflects Karla McLaren, the time for empathy has come. The Art of Empathy brings welcome, practical guidance for mastering this essential life skill.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Wonderfully insightful 20 novembre 2013
Par Rosemarie S - Publié sur
Karla McLaren has written another, well researched book on the subject of emotional understanding & the benefits of empathy. I'm happy to recommend it to any one who is interested in developing their social & emotional skills.

There are many connections between this book & her earlier work The Language of Emotions: What Your Feelings Are Trying to Tell You. This book, being a later work, reflects some of the further maturing of her understanding of this, very current, area of research & consideration. & she is quite open to the probability that others, with different life experiences, may have some differing views.

Two key delights for me are that:
1. She states very clearly that empathy is a human ability (though often suppressed), & she references otherworks that make clear how much of myth some of the gender stereotypes are
2. She states very clearly her concerns about "otherism" i.e. making folk wrong or unnatural in some way for simply being different or having a different perspective

A concern is how she initially describes the skill of Perceptive Engagement. For me, that description may tend to give an undesirable message to people who have boundary management issues or have a sense of being drained, or who struggle to respect the boundaries of others. I'd prefer that you read it & think through what she is saying, so I'll not discuss the detail here. My take on Perceptive Engagement is that the ideal outcome is for all parties to have sense of wholeness about the outcome.

For me, an interesting gap is that Marshall Rosenberg's empathy oriented communication guidelines are absent from her many references. Rosenberg is a globally recognised mediator, & his focus on empathy is marketted as non-violent or compassionate communication.

Other books that you might enjoy include:
The Empathy Factor: Your Competitive Advantage for Personal, Team, and Business Success
Nonviolent Communication: A Language of Life
Anger, Guilt and Shame: Reclaiming Power and Choice
What We Say Matters: Practicing Nonviolent Communication
The Compassionate Instinct: The Science of Human Goodness
Getting More: How You Can Negotiate to Succeed in Work and Life

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I learned so much from this book. 19 février 2014
Par Alice Peck - Publié sur
I was really taken with Karla McLaren's latest book, The Art of Empathy: A Complete Guide to Life's Most Essential Skill (Sounds True), in which she explores the varieties of empathy in our lives. After I'd finished reading (and copiously underlining) I had a few questions, and Karla was kind enough to answer them.

AP: You call yourself an "empath," which you describe as "someone who is aware that he or she reads emotions, nuance, subtexts, undercurrents, intentions, thoughts, social pace, interactions, relationship behaviors, body language, and gestural language to a greater degree than is deemed normal." What a great job title! When did you decide that was the path you wanted to take in your work and in your life?

KM: It wasn't a decision as much as a defense! As an extremely empathic child, I was often overwhelmed by the emotions and behaviors of others. I had to learn how to understand and work with my empathy so I could be comfortable in the world. Today, I help people learn how to manage their empathy. Intentional is the key word, because many highly empathic people live in a state of emotional overwhelm or empathic burnout--and often they don't realize they have a choice. One of the most wonderful things I've discovered in my work is that your emotional and empathic skills are flexible: You can increase them at any age, and you can calm them down if they make you uncomfortable--again, at any age.

Loved. If you are looking for an emotion positive view of these crazy things we call emotions, you would be missing out not to receive Karla's perspective. Basically, if you aren't currently using your emotions as real time tools, then this book has the potential to add value to your life. You'll notice some repeating material if you've read her other book, her blog, or taken her online course. However, she has plenty of new content and updates and adds nuance to some of the older material. Thanks Karla.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Book of the Future 28 octobre 2014
Par Karen - Publié sur
I am impressed with the practical and academic content of this book. It is easy to read and full of relevant content for human service workers and regular people alike regarding valuable reflection on self and others. It takes the definition and application of empathy into new territory of advanced human communication. I was particularly interested is Karla’s insightful explanation of empathy regarding the autism spectrum.
