Announcing Wellspring’s Luncheon speaker!
Wellspring’s 21st Annual Luncheon will take place on Monday, May 6, 2019, with keynote speaker, Helen Riess, M.D., author of The Empathy Effect: Seven Neuroscience-Based Keys for Transforming the Way We Live, Love, Work, and Connect Across Differences.
Dr. Riess is a psychiatrist and Associate Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School and Director of the Empathy and Relational Science Program in the Department of Psychiatry at MGH, and founder of Empathetics, Inc.. Dr. Riess will use her unique perspective and understanding of empathy to illustrate the importance of authentic relationships and their role in creating successful outcomes, an approach that Wellspring uses in guiding students and parents to move forward in their lives.
About The Empathy Effect: Empathy is undergoing a new evolution. In a global and interconnected culture, we can no longer afford to identify only with people who seem to be a part of our “tribe.” As Dr. Helen Riess of Harvard Medical School has learned, our capacity for empathy is not just an innate trait—it is also a skill that we can learn and expand. With The Empathy Effect, the leading researcher presents a groundbreaking teaching book to help us learn essential skills for transforming the way we relate to others in any situation.
