Topic:  Empathy and wellbeing in five stages – Yehuda Tagar

Session Summary:  We can experience adversity in a number of ways whether through direct trauma, poverty and disadvantage or vicariously within our work and personal lives. Nurturing our empathic response whether to ourselves or others can play an important part in promoting resilience, particularly when feeling overwhelmed emotionally or professionally burnt out.

Yehuda Tagar will present five stages of building empathy in a clear and logical way to build better relationships at home with children and partners, prevent professional burn out and change old restrictive patterns of behaviour at home and work. He builds a picture of empathy, with new tools to learn and practice at home. The building blocks of self-empathy can be created within a few hours. Sustainability and resilience grow as it is applied regularly at home or work.

Yehuda gives examples for each stage of empathy and how they can be used to change emotional and physical issues with individuals, groups in clinical, educational, business and creative settings. This methodical approach to empathy has a traditional background and the major tool of the contemporary modality, Psychophonetics. This is taught and practised in Hastings through the British College of Methodical Empathy. Come and hear how how the approach works, with time for question and answers and a potential opportunity to see a short demonstration.
