Robin Newman LCSW Long Island, marriage counselor talks about empathy

How do you teach empathy?

Robin Newman, how do you teach empathy?

Empathy is the ability to emotionally understand what other people feel, see things from their point of view, and imagine yourself in their place. Essentially, it is putting yourself in someone else’s position and feeling what they must be feeling.

I like to explain empathy as looking at a sunset. Imagine standing next to your partner on a dock looking at a sunset. Everyone sees colors differently. What colors are you seeing? What colors does your partner see? Maybe you do this in real life to show how differently we all see and what we focus on.

This is a glimpse into empathy. It’s all about perception. Maybe you focus on the blues and your partner is seeing more oranges in a sunset. Is there a correct answer to what we’re seeing? Not really… it’s just what we as individuals personally focus on.

Empathy is about letting go of our vision and truly trying to see someone else’s.

If we can only learn to see things through another person’s eyes, our understanding of other people would be greater, maybe our tolerance and acceptance would be greater, and our relationships (in all forms) would be better.

Therapy for Better Mental Health

Therapy for better mental health with Robin Newman, licensed social worker in Long Island, NY

So, somebody said to me, “ugh, 2020.. it sucked..” Yeah, it did.

But I’ll tell you something really great that came out of 2020.

More people now, than ever before, are finally looking at mental health / therapy as a viable, positive option to feeling better and making themselves better.

Is alcoholism and substance abuse up? There’s no question.

My phone has been ringing off the hook. I’m happy about that on some level because whatever existed before where people were going through life and just essentially existing, not addressing. Now, people have to look at things.

People are looking at therapists in a whole different light than they ever did before.
