SkillSkill 7: Empathic Concern
How well did the facilitator lead the group and create a safe space? Please explain and give examples.

Great introduction with fun music from the "Mardi Gras" seguing into interim experience and formal practice since last skill. Was kind of a "jump ahead" to "empathic joy." Charles was open, engaging, warm introducing and encouraging others to recap on how each skill has built on each other.

How well did the facilitator explain this Skill using the PowerPoint presentation? Please give examples.

Facilitated slides 1 - 3, 6, 9, and 19. Toggling back and forth with slides 5 and 6 very effective in focusing on the two aspects of empathy - affective and cognitive. Perhaps a clear statement as to the two components of empathy after the definition would have made the presentation clearer and more understandable.

How well did the facilitator explain and lead the activities in this Skill? Please explain and give specific examples.

NA

How well did the facilitator lead the Mindful Dialogues and Reflective Writing Exercises in this Skill? Please explain and give specific examples.

NA

What aspects of this Skill did you think the facilitator did exceptionally well? Please give examples.

Introduction slides did exceptionally well, as well as Cognitive Empathy slide with "toggling" step from slide 5 and 6, back and forth.

How well did the facilitator lead the Contemplative Practice in this Skill? Please explain and give specific examples.

Slide 20 - Briefly described what the CP would be i.e., Sympathetic Joy (or Empathic Joy), but did not do....

What aspects of this Skill could the facilitator improve? Please give examples.

A clearer defintion of Empathy up front and re-inforcement with clear statement as to the two components - affective and cognitive. Really stated after the fact of the slides, then made clear. Probably would have been better for one facilitator to do both slides, rather than split between two facilitators.
