GET A LIFE: The importance of resilience | Emotional Intelligence Development | Scoop.it
Through 15 years of groundbreaking research, Karen Reivich and Andrew Shatte – two expert psychologists and the country’s pre-eminent resilience-research team – have concluded that resilience is what determines how high people rise above what...
Barbara Kerr's insight:

"The culture we live in today desperately needs to be resilient. We are constantly being buffeted with messages that remind us that the world is a dangerous place, the economy is suffering, bacteria is lurking everywhere waiting to give us a possible new plague, and our gadgets are always ringing and binging. Being frazzled is a way of life."

What Is Empathy, and Can Empathy Be Taught?

What Is Empathy, and Can Empathy Be Taught? | Emotional Intelligence Development | Scoop.it
Empathy is a commonly used, but poorly understood, concept. It is often confused with related concepts such as sympathy, pity, identification, and self-transposal. The purposes of this article are to clearly distinguish empathy from related terms and to suggest that the act of empathizing cannot be taught.

 

According to Edith Stein, a German phenomenologist, empathy can be facilitated. It also can be interrupted and blocked, but it cannot be forced to occur.


What makes empathy unique, according to Stein, is that it happens to us; it is indirectly given to us, “nonprimordially.” When empathy occurs, we find ourselves experiencing it, rather than directly causing it to happen.

 

This is the characteristic that makes the act of empathy unteachable. Instead, promoting attitudes and behaviors such as self-awareness, nonjudgmental positive regard for others, good listening skills, and self-confidence are suggested as important in the development of clinicians who will demonstrate an empathic willingness.
