“Empathic Communication” - Free to Download Tomorrow (01/12/2015)


Lisbeth Holter Brudal introduces her newly-translated version of her book, “Empathic Communication: The Missing Link”. This is a book tackles how we relate to each-other through empathy and communication. Empathy - the ability to recognize other people’s feelings and intentions - is an innate ability. To communicate - to participate in dialogue, seek contact, and engage in interaction with others - is an innate need. There is strong evidence that the ability to empathize is partially linked to a specific type of nerve cells in the brain, called “mirror neurons.” Neurobiological research shows that our mirror neurons make it possible for us to replicate and recognize other people’s feelings and intentions. The cells also affect our capacity for self-reflection. The innate potential for empathy can be developed early in through the caregiver’s ability to communicate, build a relationship, and meet the child’s inner need for contact. The book describes a special communication tool, empathic communication, built on this understanding of communication.

“Empathic Communication” will expand your ability to understand and care for the ones you love the most. It tackles difficult conversations in the event of a loss or a tragic change in the lives of others. This book allows you to respond in empathy and dissolve confusion created by communication barriers.

“As the current owner of a child care center, I was quite intrigued by the author’s content on empathetic communication as it applied to young children. This particular statement she made really hit home for me…“With Empathic Communication, we can say that through a process characterized by mutual mirroring and dialogue, we can work toward an understanding of what another person understands by recognizing that person’s feelings and intentions in ourselves. This very recognition leads to a sense of belonging and equality.” The information provided in this book is extremely useful not only in my profession, but in dealing with so many situations in life. Based on the positive nature of this book, and the practical concepts outlined, I have no hesitation in recommending it to others!” – Kevin A. Crane

“This is a deeply detailed look into empathic communication. I found myself nodding a lot (my wife asked me why I was doing it as I was unaware) because so much of this made lightbulbs go off in my head. If you need scientific proof the author offers lots of quoted studies allowing you to dive even further into specific topics. What really helped me was the actual example on the use of empathic communication in Chapter 4.” – James Irwin
