Do I Really Know You? Do You Really Know Me? Empathy amid Diversity in Differing Learning Contexts
Kasl, Elizabeth; Yorks, Lyle
Adult Education Quarterly: A Journal of Research and Theory, v66 n1 p3-20 Feb 2016
We explore the need for empathy in diverse groups, conceptualize the epistemology of empathy in relationship to "whole-person dialogue," and examine strategies for creating empathic space that take into consideration the "paradox of diversity." Two examples from our practice illustrate the role of empathic connection in personal learning and organizational change.
