Research shows that 1 out of 5 people are highly sensitive. But what is the difference between having empathy and being an empath or highly sensitive? “Empathy means our heart goes out to another person in joy or pain,” says Dr. Judith Orloff. “But empaths actually feel others’ emotions and physical symptoms in their own bodies, without the usual defenses most people have.”
In The Empath’s Survival Guide: Life Strategies for Sensitive People (on sale April 4, 2017), Dr. Orloff offers an invaluable resource to help empaths and everyone who wants to develop their sensitivities to become more caring people in an often insensitive world. This guide shows readers how to learn skills to prevent exhaustion, overwhelm, and compassion fatigue—and how to embrace the empath’s gifts of intuition, creativity, and spiritual connection.
In this exercise-rich book, Dr. Orloff (an empath herself) brings fresh insights into:
• What is your sensitivity IQ or empath type?
• Areas of life empathy affects—health, addictions, weight, relationships, parenting
• Neuroscience findings explaining the empath experience
• Why empaths are misdiagnosed with sensory processing disorder, depression, anxiety, or chronic fatigue
• How to protect yourself from emotional hangovers & taking on others’ stress in intimate relationships and work
• Combating narcissists & other energy vampires in your life
• Travel tips for staying centered in crowded planes, airports & hotels
