Empathy, Emotional Contagions and Velcroface-985977_1920

Eric Ehrke, LCSW

This workshop includes a lecture, discussion and group interaction about Somatic Empathy Theory, which states that emotional energy moves between people and attaches to us like lint on Velcro. When we scan the environment for accurate information for safety and security considerations, ambient emotional energy is absorbed into our physical body. These automatic transfers occur with or without our awareness due to mirror neurons and universal nature related to our human empathic abilities. Everyone is born empathically connected to another’s felt experience, but some of us have heightened abilities.
