Today, empathy is considered to lie at the heart of the healing arts. While highly empathic individuals connect deeply and personally to others, they are often vulnerable to emotional exploitation, or may feel overwhelming responsibility to act as untrained “healers” to those around them – often at great emotional and practical cost to themselves. Is empathy an innate capacity, a psychological skill to develop, or an art to be practiced? How does an empathic person evolve from a “naïve” towards a “mature” manifestation of the archetype of the wounded healer, and what is the place of empathy in the Jungian process of “individuation”? Explore answers to these questions online as we welcome back Canadian psychologist, and specialist in treating Highly Sensitive People and Gifted Adults, Susan Meindl.
