Empathic “I”
by Chris Meriam (1996)

 

Examines the most essential healing dynamic within psychosynthesis psychotherapy: empathy as a direct manifestation of Self. Includes theory, experiential exercises, personal sharing, and poignant case examples. The author makes it clear that empathy for another can only arise from an empathic communion with Self and a resultant “self-empathy” for all aspects of one’s own personality, from the depths to the heights. This monograph has been extremely well received by graduate students studying to be psychotherapists. (40 pages)
