The Power Of Empathy

Animated and directed by Katy Davis (Aka Gobblynne), The Power Of Empathy is an animated short created in collaboration with the UK Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts (RSA), a fellowship created to turn people's hopes for a better world into reality. This short delves into the difference between sympathy and empathy, in an exchange between a troubled fox and a bear looking to help. Very informative, and a great way to turn a lecture into a more visually engaging experience.

What is the best way to ease someone’s pain and suffering? How can you really be there for another person?  In this beautifully animated RSA Short, Dr BrenĂ© Brown reminds us that we can only create a genuine empathic connection if we are brave enough to get in touch with our own fragilities.
