from attribute to relationship

David Ian Jeffrey

pp. 33-72

This chapter outlines the change in students' perceptions of empathy as they gain clinical experience with patients. Initially, they talk about as empathy as a possession, something that they have. Later, they see empathy as something that they do, as a dynamic process which is embedded in a relationship and much affected by the context of the clinical consultation with the patient. They describe the process of empathising with a patient.
