The Science of Caring: A Conversation with Rick Weissbourd
“When we talk about caring for other people, we are also talking about caring for the common good, and we’re talking about caring across difference. Relatively speaking, it’s not hard for people to care for someone else. Almost everybody cares for somebody else. The higher bar for a lot of people is caring for people who are different from them in race or class, or culture, or political orientation, or religious orientation.” – Dr. Rick Weissbourd
