ILA 6-Session Mini Course Series: Listen with Empathy

     In preparation for ILA’s 5th annual International Day of Listening on September 17, 2020,
join us for a 6-session series of Mini Courses on Listening with Empathy.

     At a time when there is a crucial need for empathic listening, we are challenged by our own stress and conflict to be able to listen with empathy. This 6-session of mini-courses, led by ILA’s experts, will provide you with ways to be a more empathic listener. You will learn what empathy is and is NOT, how to identify the speaker’s emotion, and how to listen and respond with empathy effectively.
