MOL focusses on the distress underlying any particular symptom pattern rather than the symptoms themselves

Another Blog Article Rethinking Empathy

I’ve just posted another article to my In Control blog on the Psychology Today website. You can find the article here: https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/in-control/201706/out-empathy In the article I use the opportunity to consider empathy from an unconventional perspective. I suggest that empathy may actually contribute to problems rather than alleviating them because it allows people to assume that they know what others are going through which can never be the case. My stance in the article is that curiosity rather than empathy might be a much more helpful attitude for building caring and considerate social relationships.
