Certain circumstances can prevent us from expressing care and empathy, thereby impacting the outcome of our interactions. It is important to recognise that we can miss opportunities for empathy through the ways we have learnt to communicate with one another. This workshop looks at the concept of empathy and the different ways it can be expressed. The link between mental health and empathy will also be explored. The workshop ends with some guidelines for practising empathy and the key points that we should heed in its use.
