Empathy versus Sympathy

December 13, 2013

Great animation video on the difference between empathy & sympathy narrated   by Brené Brown.

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 Brené 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.
