As Prime For Life (PFL) instructors and Prime Solutions (PS) counselors, research suggests empathy is a critical factor in working effectively with our clients. But are there situations where that empathy can create difficulties for us or the client? This session will look at the cognitive and affective elements of empathy, consider the risks associated with empathy, and tools that can assist us in maintaining a healthy balance. Because learning is at its best when the learner is highly engaged, the instructor will use a dynamic blend of didactic, discussion, and activities to elicit participants' thinking on these instructor/provider issues.
- Participants will recognize that empathy is essential to our work and so is maintaining appropriate boundaries
At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to:
- Have a working definition of cognitive and affective components of empathy
- Recognize and describe when we either over or under-invest in clients
- Identify three tools for maintaining healthy empathy with clients
- Plan for Integration of these concepts into their Prime For Life or Prime Solutions practice
