The Empath's Survival Guide
Life Strategies for Sensitive People

Starting at:





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.

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.

Extremely useful practical tips to stay grounded and balanced Review by WP


I was surprised in taking the surveys how high my score was, and the advice given throughout the book really spoke to me. I hope people struggling with energy balance find this book as I found it extremely helpful in everyday life. (Posted on May 4, 2017)

It was a fantastic read and very thourough Review by Red


I love the way Judith Orloff writes. she covers all the bases in a very communicable way with out losing the layman but still highly informing us all. Other books on the subject from other authors seem to be writing technical papers from Doctors to Doctors. They can be followed but at the expense of looking up way too much Psychology Jargon & definitions. Judith Orloff doesn't do that bus till covers the subject with accuracy and more understanding and completeness. She knows how to connect to her readers of all sciences. great job Judith.
