In this 45-min podcast, host Stephen Buehler will interview psychotherapists, neuroscientists, philosophers, healers and regular people on the topic of "empathic distress." This experience can be viewed through many different lenses, but they all share a common theme: empathic distress is a moment of relationship that creates a personal overload of experience (sensation or otherwise), potentially resulting in a personal injury. This experience can also be called other names: vicarious trauma, secondary victimization. We'll discuss topics like: boundaries, differentiation, empathy, compassion, communication, assertiveness, mammalian anthropology, mirror neurons, self and no-self, spiritual implications of oneness and individuality, and other interesting topics.
