$55

with Peter Fernald

Calendar Mar 27, 2018 at 6:30 pm, runs for 3 weeks

In this course students both enhance their ability to listen empathically and develop a clear sense of how this critical skill relates to personal development, authenticity and greater fulfillment in relationships. The course includes brief demonstrations of empathic listening and small group (dyads and triads) activities. Students are encouraged to practice empathic listening outside the classroom. Successes and challenges in such efforts are presented and discussed. Peter taught for 46 years in UNH's Psychology Department. He greatly enjoys teaching and having fun and laughter in the classroom.
