I am interested in the notion of being an empath and being able to maintain healthy boundaries and staying grounded at the same time.
I have had several HT students who had tremendous boundary issues and felt bombarded by all the information that comes their way.
I am unable to connect on the web to listen. Is there any solution to this readily available? I do not have a land line phone and only limited cell phone minutes. Thanks.
Hi, I am registered for this live call tonight and cannot figure out how to listen in. Am I missing something with the support technology? Linny
Is this supposed to be a live call/interview? I have been trying to connect via web and not successful at all. I guess I will have to listen to it as a past recording.
Please advise what else I should do next time, I do enjoy live calls.
Below, I've provided a list of Dr. Steve Taylor's books that we referenced in our interview as well as several evidenced-based research studies discussing empathy, its origins, gender differences, neural correlates, and its impact on medical practitioners. Enjoy!
As always, we appreciate your insightful comments.
