Teach Empathy – a Tool for Success

Teach Empathy – a Tool for Success | compassion | Scoop.it

When my son entered high school, the administration admitted they didn’t know what to do with autism. So, they hired a consultant 400 miles away; Michelle Garcia Winner Thinking Center.  One concept the specialists taught my son, JJ, was how to take the perspective of others; Winner calls this technique “Perspective Taking.”  In her book “Thinking about You, Thinking about Me” she states “perspective taking is a casual term used to describe the ability of one person to consider the point of view and motives of themselves as well as others.”

The Neurobiology of “We”. Relationship is the flow of energy and information between people

The Neurobiology of “We”. Relationship is the flow of energy and information between people, essential in our development
"The study of neuroplasticity is changing the way scientists think about the...

 

“Relationship is key,” he emphasizes. “When we work with relationship, we work with brain structure. Relationship stimulates us and is essential in our development. People rarely mention relationship in brain studies, but it provides vital input to the brain. Every form of psychotherapy that works, works because it creates healthier brain function and structure.… In approaching our lives, we can ask where do we experience the chaos or rigidity that reveal where integration is impaired.

 

We can then use the focus of our attention to integrate both our brain and our relationships. Ultimately we can learn to be open in an authentic way to others, and to ourselves. The outcome of such an integrative presence is not only a sense of deep well-being and compassion for ourselves and others, but also an opening of the doors of awareness to a sense of the interdependence of everything. ‘We’ are indeed a part of an interconnected whole.””

“We is what me is!”

Eli Levine's curator insight, February 12, 2014 11:34 PM

The network of "I" is connected to the network that is "us" in an upward gradient.

 

There can be no full "I" without "we", because all humans have to be socialized, like any other social animal, in order to develop fully as individual human beings.

 

We are all connected to one another and the environment to form one web on this planet.  It affects us and we affect it, sometimes for good, sometimes for bad, depending upon what we do to it consciously and subconsciously.

 

Why listen to the individualists who have absolutely no sense or desire to connect with the other that is around them and that has helped form them as individuals, psychologically, physically and socially?

 

They are not in touch with the actual world, and are probably just of a pathological mindset that, I think, needs to be treated as a disease by our society.

 

We are all one.

 

What you do effects all those who are around you and are connected to you.

 

And, most importantly, what you do to them/it is the same thing that you do to yourself, as an individual.

 

Think about it.

 

Libertarians.

 

Conservatives.

 

Think about it.

Restorative Justice Programs Take Root in Schools

Restorative Justice Programs Take Root in Schools | compassion | Scoop.it
Restorative justice, which encourages young people to develop empathy for one another, is increasingly offered in schools seeking an alternative to “zero tolerance” policies.

 

The approach now taking root in 21 Oakland schools, and in Chicago, Denver and Portland, Ore., tries to nip problems and violence in the bud by forging closer, franker relationships among students, teachers and administrators. It encourages young people to come up with meaningful reparations for their wrongdoing while challenging them to develop empathy for one another through “talking circles” led by facilitators like Mr. Butler.

Consistency and Proportionality in Victim-Offender Mediation Agreements

This tactic will work for small cases, maybe a person how take that cash from the corner store but for bigger offenses it can be a dangers and allow the citizens thru mediation to decide their punishment will not be fair. You would have to ask ‘who has the most power over the situation’. How is punishment going implemented and is it equal for all offenders of similar crimes? The criminal justice system is obligate to give a fair trial. When you have emotions involve then punishment can get ugly. I do agree that offenders should be allowed the opportunity to restore and transform because in the long run he or she will have to be supported by the tax dollars payers.

What is Nurturing Compassion?

As our society becomes increasingly aware of the importance our children’s health, national targets have been set for cultivating both healthy bodies and healthy minds.  At primary school level, the focus has predominantly been on the former and has led to all Scottish primary schools actively working towards implementing a minimum of two hours physical education per week.  While it is accepted that cultivating the mental wellbeing of children is of paramount importance, and clear targets underpin our responsibility to do so, there is an insufficient amount of training and resources available to primary school teachers that could enable them to constructively and sustainably engage with this critical objective.

Study: More Than a Feeling: Integrating Empathy Into the Study of Lawmaking, Lawbreaking, and Reactions to Lawbreaking

Study: More Than a Feeling: Integrating Empathy Into the Study of Lawmaking, Lawbreaking, and Reactions to Lawbreaking | compassion | Scoop.it

Empathy is related, directly or indirectly, to important elements in criminology such as the enactment of harsh penalties for repeat offenders, antisocial behavior, feelings of legitimacy toward the law, and attitudes toward the death penalty. Although empathy is beginning to find its way into criminological discourse, it is still not well understood nor often incorporated into quantitative research. This is likely due to issues regarding the conceptualization and measurement of empathy as well as the lack of measures of empathy incorporated into contemporary data sets.

 

 

This study discusses the importance of empathy for criminology and uses a set of research examples to exemplify the relationships between empathy and outcomes important to criminology. Empathy emerges as an important predictor of criminal behavior, support for harsh laws, and perceptions of police effectiveness. Future research should incorporate measures of empathy when seeking to understand individual feelings and behaviors as they relate to important facets of criminology and criminal justice.

Listening with understanding and empathy is a skill that can be taught, not unlike mathematics or science. Engage in fun activities with your children while teaching a better understanding of their emotions.
