Interpersonal Sensitivity: Theory and Measurement

By Judith A. Hall; Frank J. Bernieri | Go to book overview

the evolutionary and social-developmental origins of empathic accuracy, its physiological aspects, its relation to gender and other individual difference variables, its dynamic role in the context of personal relationships, its relevance to applied domains such as clinical and counseling psychology, and its sensitivity to the processes of mental control (p. 6).

These issues will continue to be of interest in empathic accuracy research, but they will increasingly compete for attention with a host of new issues that interpersonal sensitivity researchers will want to explore. We hope the procedures described in this chapter leave them better equipped for their research expeditions than they might otherwise have been.

Q: So, is that it? Are you finished now?

A: What do you think? (Tell me. I'd really like to know.)
