The power of empathy

Brené Brown on Empathy

Empathy is the capacity to identify and share someone else’s emotions and experiences. As Brené Brown explains in the clip above, "empathy is feeling with people." 

It's the key to emotional attunement with your partner and it's essential to the Emotion Coaching style of parenting.

To have empathy is to really understand somebody, what they want, what they believe. And not just in the moment, but in general.

No wonder you're upset. 

That would make me mad, too. 

I understand how you feel.
