Listening as an Act of Empathy: The StoryCorps Model

Setup

Storytelling is a uniquely human activity, helping us to make sense of the world, cultivate empathy, honor the past, and pass on traditions. Everyone has a story to tell, and sharing them can be an act of love, an expression of compassion, and a way to explore our humanity more fully. Careful listening also builds health-promoting connections among caregivers, family members, healthcare providers, and patients. For two decades, StoryCorps has been collecting, sharing, and preserving people’s stories—half a million of them, and counting. Here is an opportunity to hear just a few—and then to tell your own story to active listeners.
