Life strategies for sensitive people, by empath and UCLA psychiatrist, Judith Orloff, MD.
An empowering book for anyone who wants to develop their sensitivities and empathy to become a more caring person in an often insensitive world.
What is the difference between having empathy and being an empath?
Per the author, “having empathy means our heart goes out to another person in joy or pain. But, for empaths, it goes much farther. We actually feel others’ emotions, energy, and physical symptoms in our own bodies, without the usual defenses that most people have.”
Discovering sensitive people too often get misdiagnosed in the mainstream health care system, Dr. Orloff set out to offer empaths a range of “survival guide” strategies to positively manage their sensitivities and avoid sensory and intuitive overload.
In THE EMPATH'S SURVIVAL GUIDE, Dr. Orloff covers topics including health, work, love, sex, parenting, narcissists, and other energy vampires, in addition to developing your own intuition. With these strategies in place, you can better enjoy your gifts of depth, creativity, intuition, and fulfill your desire to help others and better the world.
