Amid the COVID-19 global pandemic and social unrest, we are seeing people around the world be more sensitive and understanding to one another. Today we’re joined by Associate Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School and author of "The Empathy Effect," Helen Riess. As someone who studies and coaches empathy, she shares what role empathy is playing in today’s society.
