From Empathy to Kenepathy.
Stimac, Michele
Laboratory method defines empathy colloquially as the ability "to get into another person's shoes," yet very often, empathy training concentrates only on understanding another's feelings. Empathy training should go beyond the ability to understand feelings. Kenepathy is a term which has been coined to broaden the accepted application of 'empathy,' expanding it to include feelings, experience, ideas, prejudices, and other cognitive data. Trainees asked to kenepathize are called upon to grasp the multiple forces in a person'a life space and come closer to a real understanding of what that person is trying to communicate. (Author)
