Dr. Helen Riess on Empathy and the Science of Emotion (Part 1 of 3‪)‬ Clear+Vivid with Alan Alda

    • Society & Culture

Relating and communicating in the doctor’s office can sometimes be a matter of life or death. Clear+Vivid with Alan Alda is devoting a special series of three shows to doctor-patient relations and how better understanding can be achieved through empathy and deeper listening. First up is Dr. Helen Riess whose research has shown that not only is empathy important to the doctor-patient relationship, but that, when it’s lacking, empathy can be taught. Join us for this episode with Dr. Riess, followed by Dr. Karl VanDevender (available December 6th) and two experts in communication, Dr. Laura Lindenfeld and Dr. Susmita Pati, from the Alda Center at Stony Brook University (available December 8th).
