Ask a Therapist

Virtual Event Series

"I’m trying to understand what my friend is going through but I can’t relate."

Every month, our Ask a Therapist webinar series covers a mental health topic that lingers in our minds. In May, we’re talking about building empathy. 

Date: Wednesday, May 4th
Time: 12:00 PM - 12:30 PM ET

Broadly, empathy is about our ability to share in and accurately understand what’s going on inside of another person, especially how they’re feeling – almost as if it were happening to us. Some people may be more or less empathic. For example, people whose parents were responsive to their feelings and needs, supportive, and less controlling in childhood tend to be more empathic. However empathy can be developed, and we can find ways to change it for the better.

Join our therapists this month to have your questions answered on:

  1. How to develop empathy 
  2. Understanding your emotions and others' 
  3. How to prevent compassion fatigue
