Empath’s Survival Guide: Life Strategies for Sensitive People

by Judith Orloff MD

What is the difference between having empathy and being an empath? “Having empathy means our heart goes out to another person in joy or pain,” says Judith Orloff, MD. “But for empaths it goes much further. We actually feel others’ emotions, energy, and physical symptoms in our own bodies, without the usual defenses that most people have.” With The Empath’s Survival Guide, Dr. Orloff offers a practical tool set to help sensitive people develop healthy coping mechanisms in our high-stimulus world―while fully embracing the empath’s gifts of intuition, compassion, creativity, and spiritual connection.

Empath’s Survival Guide

This practical, empowering, and loving book was created to support empaths and anyone who wants to develop their sensitivities to become more caring people in an often-insensitive world. It helps empaths through their unique challenges and gives loved ones a better understanding of the needs and gifts of the sensitive people in their lives. In this book, Dr. Orloff offers crucial practices, including:

• Self-assessment exercises to help you identify your empath type
• Tools for protecting yourself from sensory overload, exhaustion, addictions, and compassion fatigue while replenishing your vital energy
• Simple and effective strategies to stop absorbing stress and physical symptoms from others and protect yourself from narcissists and other energy vampires
• How to find the right work and create relationships that nourish you
• How to navigate intimate relationships without feeling overwhelmed
• Guidance for parenting and raising empathic children
• Awakening the empath’s gift of intuition and deepening your spiritual connection to all living beings

For any sensitive person who’s been told to “grow a thick skin,” this paperback edition of The Empath’s Survival Guide is an invaluable resource for staying fully open while building resilience, exploring your gifts of depth and compassion, and feeling welcome and valued by a world that desperately needs what you have to offer.

“Dr. Orloff has done a great service to empaths everywhere with The Empath’s Survival Guide. This information will help thousands of people protect themselves from psychic vampires, set healthy boundaries, and recognize their sensitivity as the gift it truly is.” ―Christiane Northrup, MD, author of the New York Times bestsellers Goddesses Never Age; Women’s BodiesWomen’s Wisdom; and The Wisdom of Menopause

“This book is essential reading for anyone who feels overwhelmed by our chaotic world and wants to master tools to become a more sensitive, whole, and powerful person. It’s also for the loved ones of sensitive people who want to understand them better. It is easy to read, straight to the point and offers practical ways for loving people to thrive and avoid compassion burnout. A physician and empath herself, Dr. Orloff shows you how to prevent sensory overload by setting healthy boundaries with many types of draining people, including narcissists. This book is a lifetime guide to return to again and again. Highly recommended!” ―Joan Borysenko, PhD, author of New York Times bestseller Minding the Body, Mending the Mind

The Empath’s Survival Guide is a lifesaver for sensitive people and anyone who wants to become more empathic in their relationships without taking on your partner’s stress. Highly recommended!” ―John Gray, PhD, author of the international bestseller Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus

“Once in a while, a book appears that could have described yet another pathology. Instead, The Empath’s Survival Guide by Judith Orloff humanizes a group of persons whose special traits and talents are normalized on the continuum of human experience and appreciated for their specialness. We recommend everyone read this book to broaden their view of human diversity and deepen their empathy for special talents and challenges.” ―Harville Hendrix, PhD, and Helen LaKelly Hunt, PhD, coauthors of the New York Times bestseller Getting the Love You Want, Imago Relationship Therapy, and Making Marriage Simple

“Anyone feeling too stressed or too sensitive to personal or planetary changes will love this new book. It provides tips, tools, and techniques for those of us often misunderstood by others. A masterpiece of love and understanding.” ―Joe Vitale, author of Zero Limits and The Attractor Factor

“Many individuals discover that opening to others through love, compassion, and empathy involves becoming vulnerable and often damaged psychologically and spiritually. Empaths, take heart! The solution is not to give up empathy, but to develop skills that avoid being damaged or blindsided in the process. Dr. Judith Orloff’s The Empath’s Survival Guide shows how. This book is seriously needed. It addresses an issue long ignored in healing, psychology, and medicine.” ―Larry Dossey, MD, author of One Mind: How Our Individual Mind Is Part of a Greater Consciousness and Why It Matters
