Karla McLaren, MEd, is an award-winning author, researcher, and empathy expert. Her groundbreaking Six Essential Aspects of Empathy model highlights all of the processes in healthy empathy and makes them understandable, accessible, and attainable.

This model helps people access, develop, and manage their empathy intentionally, and it explicitly welcomes people who have been exiled from earlier models of empathy (such as men, boys, autistic people, and people with personality conditions such as narcissism or sociopathy).

Her books include The Art of Empathy, The Power of Emotions at Work, Embracing Anxiety, and The Language of Emotions.
