About Carl Rogers and Empathic Listening
The work we do in this training to develop our empathy skills is based on the work of Carl Rogers. The process is also known by other names: Empathic Listening, Active Listening or Reflective Listening.
Carl Rogers developed the basic practice in the therapeutic counseling setting where he listened deeply to his clients. He is considered one of the top 3 most influential Clinical Psychologists of all time.
We are taking the practice out of the therapy setting and building on this basic practice and mindset and bringing it into group relationships and communication.
To deepen your understanding of the foundation of this practice, below are videos that model empathic listening as demonstrated by Carl Rogers.
