Lisbeth Holter Brudal & Edwin Rutsch: Dialogs on How to Build a Culture of Empathy in Norway

Lisbeth Holter Brudal is a psychologist living in Oslo, Norway. She developed a 40 hour “Empathic Communication” course for professionals who want to educate others. This method is now used in hospitals, in schools, family centers and different institutions in Norway.


By educating professionals in a professional way of communicating based on empathy, we have the experience that our courses influence the daily work in a positive way for doctors, nurses, teachers and others in their contact with patients and pupils and also in the way they cooperate in the hospital or in the school.
