With the use of personal story and social science research, this workshop helps people uncover what's hard about asking for help, and what's hard about giving help to others in their difficult time. People use their own experiences with failed connections, both as a giver and receiver, to learn highly specific, practical tools for promoting empathy that can be applied by anybody.
Recommended supplies needed:
- copy of Dr. Kelsey Crowe and Emily McDowell's book "There's No Good Card For This"
About the host: Dr. Kelsey Crowe is the co-author with Emily McDowell of the book There Is No Good Card for This: What to do and say when life is scary, awful, and unfair to the people you love. Her work has been featured on NPR, Wall Street Journal, Oprah.com, Forbes, and elsewhere. Using personal storytelling and her social science research, she shares tips and life realities about being there for others that makes empathy in times of suffering more doable for who we are, and where we are in our life. She hopes for a day when no one has to suffer alone simply because others didn't know what to do or say.
