$18.95 10 tickets left
  VIDEO CONFERENCE: “Aspie” One-Way Empathy Isn’t Empathy. Occasionally I am scolded by an “Aspie” telling me that they do indeed have empathy. They feel hurt and offended that I would suggest otherwise. Rarely an NT will tell me the same because they are aware of how sensitive their “Aspie” is. But sensitivity is not empathy, any more than words alone convey meaning, or paint on a canvas is a work of art. Empathy is a two way street. If you… Find out more »

Portland, OR 97217 United States

  TELECONFERENCE: Empathy “Asperger” Style Thursday July 18, 2019, 10:00 am PDT Many of our “Aspies” believe they have empathy for a variety of reasons. Sometimes we think so too. By the very definition of Autism Spectrum Disorder, “Aspies” do not have empathy. They may be sensitive. They may be kind. They may care about our welfare. But empathy is more than that. Empathy involves a reciprocal interaction. It is an ongoing process of communication that makes you feel understood. If… Find out more »

It took me years to comprehend that nearly all of the problems I experienced in my relationships with my “Aspie” loved ones could be explained by Empathy Dysfunction (EmD). Once I got it that they were not using empathy to understand the world and the people around them, I was able to navigate the gummed up communications among us. “Aspies” have Zero Degrees of Empathy (EmD-0) so their reality is… Find out more »
