    Ahhhh, lots to think about. And I agree with the parent of the child with autism; our youngest is on the spectrum and I've never met a more deep-feeling, empathetic child.
    I thought of you this morning as I was uploading my own post on empathy:http://blog.livlane.com/2013/01/key-to-success/. 🙂 Hope you are well!

  2. So much research on Empathy is taking place; I gathered some of the highlights from 2012 here, for anyone who is curious: http://collaborative-communication.org/blog/general/2012-empathy-year-in-review/

  3. Thanks so much, Hadassah, for posting this empathy year-in-review–it's a fantastic resource!

    And Liv, thanks for adding your personal perpective–am so glad to hear confirmation that autism does not have to mean a lack of empathy!
