About the Authors
  • The lack of ability to emphathize is central to many psychiatric conditions. Empathy is affected by neurodevelopment, brain pathology and psychiatric illness. Empathy is both a state and a trait characteristic. Empathy is measurable by neuropsychological assessment and neuroimaging techniques. This book, first published in 2007, specifically focuses on the role of empathy in mental illness. It starts with the clinical psychiatric perspective and covers empathy in the context of mental illness, adult health, developmental course, and explanatory models. Psychiatrists, psychotherapists and mental heath professionals will find this a very useful reference for their work.

    • International team of authors, all leading experts in the field
    • Clinical and theoretical chapters comprehensively cover the field from all perspectives
    • Covers the new approaches to empathy research including empathogenic agents, brain imaging, genetics and 'teaching' empathy to medical students

    Reviews & endorsements

    Review of the hardback: 'In summary, this book is an excellent addition to the literature on social cognition – an ambitious attempt to draw together the multiple branches of empathy research seems to have been met with success.' Psychological Medicine

    Review of the hardback: 'The foreword is recommended first read to prevent losing one's way, as it serves as an excellent and quite thorough tour guide. … As an uninitiated reader, this book has succeeded in evoking interest in this comprehensive area. But also for active researchers within this field, this edited book provides an overview and literature references to other current research approaches.' Journal of Psychosomatic Research
