Dorothy Della Noce

Hi everyone!
I am glad to be a part of this group and to meet you all!
Let me answer what I can of Edwin's questions:

1. What is your name, background and interest with training empathy?

My name is Dorothy Della Noce. I think of myself as a writer, teacher, and trainer, in other words, a professional communicator :) I come from the Communication discipline. I teach Communication in the Master's program at Walden University, run a coaching/editing service for academic writers (, and maintain a website for my interest in helping people communicate across differences ( I have been interested in empathy since the late 90s because I consider it a powerful practice for helping people communicate across differences.

2. What are your ideas for forming an International Empathy Trainers Association?

I cannot say I have a lot of ideas for the association yet. I am interested in seeing what develops. Right now, I am focused on working in the Lit Review project and the Curriculum project.

3. What sort of support do you need from IETA?

I think that providing a resource bank (of ideas, not $) would be a great source of support.

How would you like to contribute of building the Association?

I think some ideas will come from working in the Lit Review project and the Curriculum project.

4. What questions do you have for others on the list?

I would just like to connect and learn more about what others are doing.
