Compassion

From WikiMediation

Jump to: navigation, search

Compassion is an attitude that can be described as a behavior of bias for the person who experiences a "passion", most often in terms of suffering. This behavior consists to enter into sympathy with the person who suffers.

Being compassionate is contrary to the required attitude that the mediator must know how to adopt in view to lead a mediation process.

Compassion is opposed to empathy which reflects an understanding of the mechanisms of pain, a capacity of detachment, and an ability to center on the person who expresses his suffering (othercentrism).
