    Abstract

    Empathy - the ability to take another's perspective and experience emotional and sympathetic reactions to their situation - is a core process in building therapeutic relationships between nurses and the individuals they care for. The question of how empathy operates when there is some disagreement or discord (conflict) between staff and persons in mental health care was the focus of our recent research.
