About the Course

Empathy is something people must use every day. Empathy isn't limited to understanding other people; it's also about understanding yourself. An important key to understanding the emotions of others is understanding how you feel those emotions. Emotional intelligence and empathy aren't innate things that are fixed; they're skills that can be learned, and anyone has the potential to excel at them. This course will help you unlock that potential. With the expertise of Dr. Shari Collins from the ASU School of Humanities, the Empathy for Self and Others course will put the tools, knowledge and strategies of empathy directly into your hands. You’ll learn the fundamentals and get acquainted with your empathy toolkit. Then, you’ll directly apply them in hands-on scenarios. A common misconception about empathy is that you have to have directly experienced the same thing as another person to empathize with them. Empathy is finding common ground and understanding others — it’s no more complex than that. It feels more important than ever to be able to understand others. Jump-start your empathy journey today!...

I wanted to take a moment to express my sincere gratitude to Coursera and Arizona University for offering the "Empathy for Self and Others" course. It has been an incredibly enriching experience for me, and I am truly grateful for the opportunity to participate. Throughout the course, I have gained valuable insights into the power of empathy, both in understanding myself and connecting with others on a deeper level. Your guidance and expertise have been instrumental in facilitating this journey of self-discovery and personal growth. The lessons and discussions provided in the course have not only broadened my perspective but have also equipped me with practical tools to cultivate empathy in my daily life. I am inspired to continue practicing empathy, not only towards others but also towards myself, fostering a greater sense of compassion and understanding. Thank you once again for your dedication and commitment to fostering empathy and emotional intelligence. Your passion for this subject shines through in every lesson, and I feel privileged to have been a part of this transformative learning experience.

Timing is everything in life and the decision to take Reslience for Everyone Specialization was a best decision. I have loved all the courses and individual modules that asked me to be reflective and honest if I was going to obtain the benefits in my wellness journey. I am deeply grateful for the course pacing and material and flow of content and most of all my learning throughout my time spent at the computer and the practical application in my life. I am not a fan of peer graded because of the lack of input given by many participants in their submissions. I also add the time dedicated to the assignments by some was a privilege to read and their sincere effort let me know I was in good company. Thank you for the safe space to share in my own submissions with peer graded assignments. Thank you Coursera and the Professor of Resilience for Everyone for the powerful takeaways.
