Holding space - the practical power of empathy

1 min read

From Heather Plett talking about how a palliative care nurse 'held space' for her and her family during the death of her mother. From the experience she abstracts the following principles:

  1. Give people permission to trust their own intuition and wisdom. 
  2. Give people only as much information as they can handle. 
  3. Don’t take their power away. 
  4. Keep your own ego out of it. 
  5. Make them feel safe enough to fail. 
  6. Give guidance and help with humility and thoughtfulness. 
  7. Create a container for complex emotions, fear, trauma, etc. 
  8. Allow them to make different decisions and to have different experiences than you would.
