Click here for a YouTube recording of Karla McLaren, talking about the difference between being empathetic and empathic, the problem we have due to our "professionalizing" of emotional difficulties, boundaries (the difference between you and me), and her new book. (What a shiny woman!)
The video is clearer than the book, in a lot of ways. Highly recommended, perhaps as an introduction to what she's doing.
She's also a fan of The Body Has a Mind of Its Own, which I discovered in some of my research recently.
This stuff's not easy - but I'm so deeply grateful for her work. I need to write her a letter.
