How to Develop Empathy in Children through Human-Animal Relationship

How to Develop Empathy in Children through Human-Animal Relationship | Compassion in Action | Scoop.it

Empathy is the ability to understand and share the feelings of another. It is an element of emotional intelligence and is related to success in many areas of development – personal, social and academic. Empathy is a human trait that many people have a “low reserve” thus all the problems we have in the world today.

 

Empathy skills can also be cultivated and developed. Parents can help children develop empathy by using the human-animal relationship. Children naturally love and are fascinated by animals. Parents can take advantage of that by fostering animal care, thereby inspiring the child’s intelligence and imagination to be empathetic and extend care in another person. Learning how to respond empathetically is also the best antidote to violence, bullying, and other unwanted aggressive behavior.

Rats display empathy, so why don't animal experimenters?

Rats display empathy, so why don't animal experimenters? | Compassion in Action | Scoop.it

The recent experiment on rats is far from the first time that empathy has been seen in animals in laboratories. In one notoriously cruel experiment, macaque monkeys were given food only if they pulled a chain that electrically shocked another monkey. Nearly all the monkeys preferred to go hungry, and one macaque went without food for 12 days rather than cause pain to another. Monkeys who had previously been shocked were even more reluctant to pull the chain and subject another individual to such punishment. Mice and rats will also starve rather than hurt friends.

 

At one laboratory where PETA conducted an undercover investigation, video footage shows a small caged monkey tugging on the coat of a worker who was mercilessly beating another monkey. The caged monkey weighed no more than 15 pounds to the worker's 170, but he wanted to help his friend.

Empathy For Animals And The Environment

Empathy For Animals And The Environment | Compassion in Action | Scoop.it

Empathy is about understanding. When we understand people, we are more inclined to adapt our words and deeds to fill their needs.  

But what about empathy for animals? Empathy for the environment? If we understand them, how will our interactions with them change?

 

People Animals Love (PAL) is a D.C. based non-profit that brings people and animals together with the belief that the unique bond can help fill some of society’s greatest needs. PAL was founded by Earl Strimple DMV who witnessed the effects of the human-animal bond with his clients. An early program matched cats with felons in Lorton County prison.
