Tech Tarik is back once more. This time round, the talk will be exploring the psychological aspect of #empathy for someone who have just gone through a major #disaster.

Have you ever felt awkward, at a loss on what to do/say/react if someone whom you cared about became a victim of major disaster. How much you should help, how not to be too patronizing with your help. Is my help really helping? Am I showing enough #empathy or #sympathy to the person I am helping.

We are very #blessed to have Ms. Judith Francis as the speaker.

Judith would be sharing on her struggle to rebuild her life after surviving the major disaster (9/11 terror attack). She would share how she coped on a daily basis, in her capacity as a psychologist herself; and how she refused to be victimized by the situation. Most importantly, the talk will include her perspective on how she wanted and still wants to be treated by others after this major life-changing event.
