Empathetic Communication: "talking with your EAR"


Please note the new location!

Dr. David Burns in his Feeling Good Podcast (https://feelinggood.com/2016/12/12/014-the-five-secrets-of-effective-communication-part-1/) describes his "Five Secrets of Effective Communication (https://feelinggood.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/the-five-secrets-v-1.pdf)", which he teaches therapists to use to build empathy. The five skills are subdivided into three sections described with the acronym EAR: Empathy, Assertiveness, and Respect.

In this meetup we will review, practice, and discuss the skills described by Dr. Burns.
