Dr. Arthur Ciaramicoli believes that empathy is the driving force behind love--and that its power goes vastly unrecognized by most people. His book, The Power of Empathy, is an important new resource for people who hope to enrich their emotional lives, improve their communication skills, & explore the spiritual dimensions of the human capacity for love. While traditional relationship books emphasize loving each other & oneself, Ciaramicoli & Ketcham argue that they overlook the critical fact that love itself needs help--and that empathy is the solution. But empathy can do more than attract & foster love. The Power of Empathy shows how people can use empathy as an assessment tool in all their relationships. Empathy can signal when people are well-intentioned & when they are deceitful. It can shield people from manipulative strangers & strengthen the bonds between loved ones. It is an emotion that has been overlooked, underused, & misunderstood for too long. Both prescriptive & narrative, The Power of Empathy provides a practical framework for anyone to use empathy to better his or her life.Ciaramicoli, Arthur P. is the author of 'Power of Empathy: A Practical Guide to Creating Intimacy, Self-Understanding and Lasting Love in Your Life' with ISBN 9780525945116 and ISBN 0525945113.
