In Inclusive Cultural Empathy in Practice, Drs. Paul B. Pedersen and Jon Carlson demonstrate how to use this relationship-centered, empathic framework to enhance and deepen therapy. Empathy, as defined in the Western context, centers on an individualistic interpretation of human desires, pain, and reasons for seeking help. This DVD discusses and demonstrates ways to reach beyond this individualistic perspective toward a relationship-centered context.
In this session, Dr. Pedersen helps clients explore, discover, and leverage those internalized voices of their "culture teachers"—the people that teach them who they are, how to behave, and how to resolve problems or find balance in life.
