“Sick Kid at Home”: How to Cultivate Empathy (and Stop Mind Reading)

Judging other people is a deeply human need, but our judgments can get in the way of an empathetic and compassionate approach to relationships. In this session, you’ll explore mindsets and strategies to cultivate empathy, even when empathy is hard to reach.

You’ll consider the dangers and effects of thinking that we can know other people’s motives. We’ll discuss ways to shift your mindset away from other people’s inner thoughts and toward your own.

You’ll leave with a framework for approaching any situation with an empathetic lens that allows you to show up in your relationships how you most want to show up.

Learning Objectives

  1. Learn how mind reading can lead us away from empathy
  2. Explore ways to short circuit our brains’ natural tendency to try to mind read
  3. Apply a framework for handling various situations that can help you cultivate empathy and show up in your relationships how you want to show up
