New Private Empathy Circles Forming with Edwin Rutsch - most effective way to practice & deepen empathy

New Private Empathy Circles Forming with Edwin Rutsch -  most effective way to practice & deepen empathy | Autismo | Scoop.it

I'll be offering a series of private weekly Empathy Circles via online Google Hangouts. Each Empathy Circle is limited to four people and is 1.5 hours. After years of; practicing and studying empathy, interviewing 100's of the world's top experts on empathy and compassion, holding hundreds of Empathy Circles, I have found these circles to be absolutely the most effective way to experience, practice and deepen the benefits of empathy. Many more benefits, see http://j.mp/1aqZuhI

How it Works and What to Expect
==========================
Empathy Circles are a quiet space that gives you the time to be listened to through reflective dialog, where your conversation is uninterrupted and then reflected back to you until you feel that you have been fully heard, seen and validated to your satisfaction. We accompany each other in our personal journeys. These circles of equal peers serve as a platform for nurturing and developing deeper empathy. They are a foundational base and first step in a curriculum of empathy based processes, skills and way of life.

There Is No Left Brain/Right Brain Divide

There Is No Left Brain/Right Brain Divide | Autismo | Scoop.it

You are hardly alone if you believe that humanity is divided into two great camps: the left-brain and the right-brain thinkers — those who are logical and analytical vs. those who are intuitive and creative. It seems to be natural law. Except it isn’t.

Wow!  This is news to me!  There is no Left Brain/Right Brain divide.

 

For as long as I can remember, human beings were either left-brain thinkers (rational and analytical) or right-brain thinkers (intuitive and creative).  Come to find out, that's not the case at all, and apparently scientists have known this for a very long time.

 

While the "left and right halves of the brain do function in some different ways, these differences are more subtle than is popularly believed."  In addition, the halves of the brain do not work in an isolated way.  Instead they work together as a whole system.  Finally, "people don't preferentially use one side or the other."

“Touch and Write Phonics” is a fun way for children to practice vowels, blends, digraphs and trigraphs – as they write with shaving cream, ketchup and more!

“Touch and Write Phonics” allows parents and teachers to create individualized practice lists, and it allows parents and teachers to track children’s progress!

▫▫ How to Play ▫▫
Children choose a phonics area to practice by tapping the “Vowels,” “Blends” or “Digraphs” button. Children will have the opportunity to watch animations that teach about short vowels, long vowels, blends and digraphs or to practice writing words with short vowels, long vowels (with special attention to “silent e”), starting and ending blends, digraphs and trigraphs.

Why childhood creativity could lead to a more empathetic world

Why childhood creativity could lead to a more empathetic world | Autismo | Scoop.it

Childhood is so special because children have a natural tendency to be creative - every child is an artist in that way,” continues FitzGibbon.

 

“All that encourages creativity and imagination is linked to empathy and empathy is all about becoming a good, feeling and right-thinking adult. All the studies show that children who are read to when they are young and who are helped to draw and engage with art develop into more empathetic and well-rounded adults.

 

====================

All that encourages creativity

and imagination is linked

to empathy 

==============

“A lot of work has been done to show that children who are encouraged to imagine and dream become better at recognising and understanding emotion in later life, better at empathising, better at problem solving.

ser niño es mirar las mismas cosas con referentes distintos, esa sería su forma de construir todo este mundo nuevo q explora. pero para el adulto esa sería la creatividad: romper algoritmos, crear otros nuevos.

Happiness: The Contagion Theory

Happiness: The Contagion Theory | Autismo | Scoop.it

"Have you ever noticed how being around nutsy/negative people can make you feel nutsy/negative?

Psychologists call this “emotional contagion” – and there’s even evolutionary reasons for why someone else’s curmudgeonly ways can infect you.

“The original form is the contagion of fear and alarm,” said Frans de Waal, a psychologist and primate expert at Atlanta’s Emory University. “You’re in a flock of birds. One bird suddenly takes off. You have no time to wait and see what’s going on. You take off, too. Otherwise, you’re lunch.”

Translation: Getting caught up in another’s negativity is a hard-wired survival mechanism.

“I have often noticed how primate groups in their entirety enter a similar mood,” de Waal said. “All of a sudden, all of them are playful, hopping around. Or all of them are grumpy. Or all of them are sleepy and settle down. In such cases, the mood contagion serves the function of synchronizing activities. The individual who doesn’t stay in tune with what everyone is doing will lose out, like the traveler who didn’t go the restroom when the bus stopped.”

Translation: Contagion theory of happiness also explains the powerful energy of “mob mentality” and why there’s a tendency for groups of people in a movie theater or concert to share a similar feeling for the move or concert.

Plus psychologists believe that “the contagion theory of happiness” is yet another form of our hard-wired mimicry we humans do – our instinctive human tendency to unconsciously imitate other people’s facial expressions, vocalizations, postures, and body movements.

For example, if someone scratches their nose, you might suddenly feel your nostrils twitch. Or if someone yawns and stretches and gets sleepy, you might yawn and feel more tired too.

Indeed, mimicry is such a strong foundation of our human emotional development that even at a mere 1-hour old, a newborn infant will be hard-wired to mimic a person’s facial gestures.

Hence why you can smile at 1-hour old baby, and this 1-hour old baby will smile back!

Translation: Our built-in human system for mimicry, explains why we humans can transfer our good and bad moods to each other.

The Journal of Applied Psychology offered up a study which showed the downer effects of a downer leader on a group. They took 189 volunteer undergraduates, divided them into 63 groups of 3, and told them they were taking part in a team-building exercise to put up a tent. Then a “leader” was chosen for each team, and shown either of video clip of a “Saturday Night Live” skits or a vignette on torture — to create either a positive/up beat mood or a negative/downer mood.

The result: If a leader was up, the team members’ moods rose. But if the leader was down, everyone became down.

Numerous other studies have also shown how when one person in a romantic coupling gets depressed, the other also becomes more depressed.

Psychologists believe this transfer of emotions is yet another form of empathy.

In London’s University College, psychologist Tonia Singer and colleagues used brain scans to explore empathy in 19 romantic couples. She hooked both individuals to brain scans. One partner in the couple was given a slight electric shock while the other partner watched. Each of their scans showed identical brain reactions. Although only one partner was shocked, both of the partner’s pain center lighted up – as if both had been jolted.

On a more happy note… Howard Friedman, a psychologist at University of California at Irvine thinks “emotional contagion” is also why some people can move and inspire others to positive action – like a good coach or a powerful preacher – or a joyous/exuberant partner in a romantic coupling.

Friedman believes it’s because the happy person’s happy facial expression, happy voice, happy gestures and happy body movements all together conspire to transmit happy emotions to all those around the happy person!"

Ruth Obadia's curator insight, September 15, 2013 6:45 AM

When it comes to finding a partner for life, there are certain characteristics that people look for. Even though people might report that they look for different things in their potential mates, ranging from physical appearance to intelligence, researchers have found that certain traits seem to be attractive to the majority of people. Some of these traits include honesty and loyalty. Now, according to new research done by a team from the University of Nottingham and Liverpool John Moores University in the United Kingdom, altruism or selfless behavior can also be considered a very attractive trait.
