      EVENT DETAILS
      The Challenge of Empathy

      The course will explore the personal benefits of becoming more empathic, obstacles that make it difficult, and established methods for achieving empathy with even the most different person.
      Empathy is a physical response that can be generated by a movie, a book, a musical piece, or other living beings. There are times when people don’t automatically respond with empathy and see it as a challenge. If people do want to go there, they can learn how to open themselves to making that connection with another. This series will lay out ideas on empathy and help us to consider expanding empathy in our lives and the lives of others.
      Bittner says, “In these times, we need more personal, cultural, and political empathy to foster greater communication in the world. I focus on trauma recovery and the consequences of common emotional trauma, and exploring the relationship between the challenge of empathy and the impact of common trauma.”
      Bittner has an MDiv and MA and is a Certified Group Therapist and Certified Clinical Trauma Professional. He has focused on helping people with empathy in over 40 years of work as a therapist.
      A one-time $10 donation is requested for the three-week course. Preregistration is not required, but can be made by emailing Bittner at AdultEdEmpathy@uussd.org.
