The Cleveland Clinic's chief experience officer shares what she's learned from her patients about the power of empathy and acceptance.
So often when people are struggling those who love them WANT to help - but don’t know how. And when life is dark or tough, and your friends don’t know how to support you, it can end up with people who find themselves alone in their times of greatest need.
Dr. Adrienne Boissy encourages us to build meaningful connections and develop empathy to help ourselves—and others—heal. She shares stories from her own life, and those of her patients, to show the importance of using language intentionally to show true compassion and to listen to and value others and their suffering.
