On Empathy... I Choose Empathy

On Empathy...   I Choose Empathy | Empathy in the Arts | Scoop.it

On Empathy... Artist Statement In searching to understand my everyday, I realized two things: What happens in my life widely differs from day to day, and one thing remains the same... that I live my life intentionally through the filter of empathy. We each are molded by our experiences. We learn what fits and what we need to cast off.

Developing Empathy: Don't Take Away the Music | Psychology Today

Developing Empathy: Don't Take Away the Music | Psychology Today | Empathy in the Arts | Scoop.it

When schools need to make cuts to save money, music is often top of the list. In the UK, funding for music in schools and the training of music teachers continues to be cut...

 

In today’s modern world, we exert our own powers of selection via culture: for better and for worse. If we want our children to grow up with more ‘empathic concern’, to be less disruptive and more cooperative, then maybe music should be as essential throughout the school curriculum as math and English.

Ab-Soul f/ Alori Joh + JaVonte’ – “Empathy”

"Fresh off his “Pineal Gland” release, Ab-Soul is switching the game up on his new record “Empathy.” Assisted by the late vocalist, Alori Joh, and JaVonte, Ab takes a more mellow approach swapping out rapping for singing—and it's definitely something you can rock to. "

STUDY: Long-term musical group interaction has a positive influence on empathy in children

STUDY: Long-term musical group interaction has a positive influence on empathy in children | Empathy in the Arts | Scoop.it

Musical group interaction (MGI) is a complex social setting requiring certain cognitive skills that may also elicit shared psychological states. We argue that many MGI-specific features may also be important for emotional empathy, the ability to experience another person’s emotional state. We thus hypothesized that long-term repeated participation in MGI could help enhance a capacity for emotional empathy even outside of the musical context, through a familiarization with and refinement of MGI empathy-promoting musical components (EPMCs).

SXSW Interactive Bag Artist on Design and Empathy

You're trying to find empathy for a communication purpose, said Yiying who tries to associate an emotion or a response to the image.
In the example of the SXSW Interactive bag, it's the image of a whack-a-mole game, an interactive game that's exhausting, which is exactly the feeling she felt last year when she attended SXSW for the first time.


She felt like she was being whacked every single night.


"Everyone is exhausted but accelerated by this event," Yiying said.

empathy art | paint cut paste | Empathy in the Arts | Scoop.it

i spent some time over the weekend creating response art, or empathy art, for my art therapy clients. empathy, of course, is the idea of sharing the feeling of another — to feel with, or to feel alongside someone else. empathy art (which can be called “response art” interchangeably) is defined by art therapist joanne kielo as “post-session artwork created by the art therapist to develop empathic capacity with a client, responding silently by rendering feelings into form.” this sort of practice is not only useful for therapist-client relationships, but it can also be very helpful for both parents and children.'

Want A Less Fussy, Easier to Soothe, Kinder Child? Make Music! |TIME.com

Want A Less Fussy, Easier to Soothe, Kinder Child? Make Music! |TIME.com | Empathy in the Arts | Scoop.it

 Want a happier, easier to calm infant and a more empathetic child? Three new studies suggest that teaching even the youngest children to make music with others can not only reduce distress and make infants smile and laugh more but also enhance brain development and boost empathy....

 

Researchers found significant increases in empathy in the children who made music together. They were not only better able to understand and mirror the emotions felt by actors in a short film clip they watched, but they also improved in their empathetic responses to statements like “It makes me sad to see a girl who can’t find anyone to play with” or “I really like to watch people open presents even when I don’t get a present myself.”...

Why Would Making Music Together Increase Empathy More Than Other Group Activities?

Why Would Making Music Together Increase Empathy More Than Other Group Activities? | Empathy in the Arts | Scoop.it

I believe that any group activity that emphasizes self-other interaction can contribute to increasing social-emotional capacities, such as empathy, but that musical group interaction may be substantially more effective in doing so.

 

This may be due to the many mental, social, and emotional skills specifically required for playing music together, and which appear to also be necessary for empathic behavior. It is almost as if the purpose of music making is to train us to become more empathic.

Making Music Together Increases Kids’ Empathy

Making Music Together Increases Kids’ Empathy | Empathy in the Arts | Scoop.it

New research from the U.K.suggests certain types of group music-making can help kids develop empathy...

 

Music education produces myriad benefits, strengthening kids’ abilities in reading, math, and verbal intelligence. New British research suggests it may also teach something less tangible, but arguably just as important:
The ability to empathize.


In a year-long program focused on group music-making, 8- to 11-year old children became markedly more compassionate, according to a just-published study from the University of Cambridge. The finding suggests kids who make music together aren’t just having fun: they’re absorbing a key component of emotional intelligence.

Jessica Blank and Erik Jensen discuss documentary theater and Empathy

Adventures in Compassion (in the Screen Trade) - http://becompassion.blogspot.com...

 

"One of the reasons the theatre is so well-suited to this conversation is that narrative theatre has at its heart the process of empathy. The very experience of watching a story unfold in the theatre triggers identifications – these new identifications crack open our comfortable, sedimented everyday identities and generate reactions and questions – and when a culture grapples with these questions together, it begins to change."

When Someone Deeply Listens To You by John Fox

When Someone Deeply Listens To You   by John Fox | Empathy in the Arts | Scoop.it

When Someone Deeply Listens To You


When someone deeply listens to you
it is like holding out a dented cup
you've had since childhood
and watching it fill up with
cold, fresh water.
When it balances on top of the brim,
you are understood.
When it overflows and touches your skin,
you are loved.

 

When someone deeply listens to you
the room where you stay
starts a new life
and the place where you wrote
your first poem
begins to glow in your mind's eye.
It is as if gold has been discovered!.

 

When someone deeply listens to you
your barefeet are on the earth
and a beloved land that seemed distant
is now at home within you.

 

— John Fox

The Connections Between Empathy And Creativity: An Interview With Seung Chan Lim

Kara and I found Seung Chan Lim when Brene Brown posted his Realizing Empathy video on her blog, and we followed the trail and found his Facebook Page, website and kickstarter campaign for his book, Realizing Empathy.

 

Seung Chan – also known as Slim – is a Computer Scientist and Manager by training, Designer by trade and, he says, “Performer by birth.” Just to give you an idea of his varied and creative background and current interests… prior to embarking on the Realizing Empathy project, Slim served as the Assistant Director of Engineering and Senior Software Design Engineer at MAYA Design, and was also an independent DJ, Music Producer and Performance Director by night. Slim says that when he’s not fighting for the right to empathize and to be empathized, he is acting, directing, dancing, composing, programming, or woodworking...
