RSA Shorts: Understanding the Strength of Empathy

This beautifully animated RSA Short will teach you the differences between empathy and sympathy, and the four qualities that make up empathy: taking a different perspective, resisting judgment, recognizing emotions in others, and communicating this recognition. “The truth is that a response rarely makes something better. What makes something better is a connection.”
