This week’s theme: Empathy & Research
Empathy is the ability to understand and share the feelings of another. Empathy can be cultivated through practice. It is important to practice active listening and to try to understand the other person’s point of view. Compassion and understanding are key components of empathy. Being able to recognize and acknowledge the emotions of another person can help to build trust and connection. Practicing empathy helps to create an environment of understanding and respect. It can also help to reduce conflict, as empathy allows for a deeper understanding of one another.

It is a comprehensive approach to designing spaces or services that are intended to be supportive and safe for people who have experienced trauma.
