ICYMI - "Ask a Therapist" Webinar: Empathy Building

Featured Image

Every month, we host an "Ask a Therapist" webinar on a pressing mental health topic. In May, for Mental Health Week, our focus was on empathy building. 

Broadly, empathy is about our ability to share in and accurately understand what’s going inside of another person, especially how they’re feeling – almost as if it were happening to us. To walk in another person’s shoes is a privilege that we can’t (literally) say we’ve ever had the honour of experiencing. But, in order to build empathy, we need to understand the inner workings of another person’s life. 

If you missed the webinar, watch the on-demand version to learn more about empathy building:

You can ask our experts about whatever's on your mind around our monthly topic. In June 2022, our theme will focus on chronic conditions. If you have any questions you'd like answered by our therapists, e-mail community@mindbeacon.com.
