6. Strategies for Empathic Communication
By incorporating mindfulness into our daily interactions, we can actually deepen our practice in the midst of our workday. More importantly, we can increase our empathy and engagement with others through deeper and more meaningful relationships. This chapter will explore four strategies: Active Constructive Responding, Appreciative Inquiry, Placebo/Nocebo and Mindful Speaking. Opportunities for practice will enable learners to experience the benefits of these strategies and promote their use in daily interactions.
