Pat Love on rethinking the “empathy gap” in light of the latest science

Have you ever wondered if some men in your practice are simply unable to listen, connect, and empathize with their partners?

In this clip, Pat explains the neurobiology of male empathy and what that looks like in the consulting room. This one is practice-changing.

This video is from our Webcast series A New Blueprint for Engaging Men in Therapy: Six Key Skills You Need to Master Now. The series features Pat Love, Terry Real, David Wexler, Esther Perel, Patrick Dougherty, and Holly Sweet—clinical innovators who will help you master new approaches to engage men in therapy and improve positive outcomes in your work with men and couples. Learn more about this limited time re-release.
