Empathy expert to speak in Charlotte | Children & Technology | Scoop.it

Dr. Bruce Perry will speak at 11:15 a.m. April 11 at a conference – “Empathy: The Tie That Binds” – at Friendship Missionary Baptist Church, 3400 Beatties Ford Road. Sponsors are Mecklenburg Medical Alliance and Endowment and Area Health Education Center. Tickets for the luncheon are $35 per person, $260 for a table for eight. See www.mmaeonline.com/empathy

 

 Like President Obama, Dr. Bruce Perry thinks we have an “empathy deficit.”

But Perry’s not taking sides in any political argument.

 

He doesn’t believe Democrats are more empathetic than Republicans or vice versa.

 

But he does think our children are growing up with less compassion and less capacity for empathy than those of earlier generations.

 

by Karen Garloch

 

 

The Mecklenburg Medical Alliance and Endowment (MMAE) has partnered with Charlotte AHEC to bring Dr. Bruce Perry, author of Born for Love: Why Empathy is Essential and Endangered, for a comprehensive program on the vital role empathy plays in human relationships. We invite parents, medical and mental health professionals, educators to learn about how empathy develops and why it is essential for our development into healthy adults.

Scientists construct first map of how the brain organizes everything we see | Children & Technology | Scoop.it

Our eyes may be our window to the world, but how do we make sense of the thousands of images that flood our retinas each day? Scientists at the University of California, Berkeley, have found that the brain is wired to put in order all the categories of objects and actions that we see. They have created the first interactive map of how the brain organizes these groupings. (...) - By Yasmin Anwar, Media Relations UC Berkeley News Center, December 19, 2012
