British Education Experts: 'Empathy Must Be Integrated Into School Curriculum'

British Education Experts: 'Empathy Must Be Integrated Into School Curriculum' | Empathy, Respect, Tolerance and Compassion | Scoop.it

A recent report entitled “Making Education Work” urges the British government to introduce radical changes into the English education system. ....

 

The independent advisory board emphasized the need for “team-working, emotional maturity, empathy, and other interpersonal skills,” which, according to them, are “as important as the proficiency in English and Mathematics in ensuring young people’s employment prospects.” A capacity for empathy has often been found to be an important characteristic of individuals who are effective in bringing about positive social change.

Amazon.com: Bullying in the Girl's World: A School-Wide Approach to Girl Bullying

Girl bullying / relationally aggressive behavior appears to be motivated by underlying fear and insecurity. The first step to counteracting girl bullying is an awareness of the hidden causes of girl bullying. The second step is gaining an understanding that these are behaviors we don t have to accept. And the third step is sharing support and skill building for dealing with and/or reducing girl bullying behavior. She includes a section on parent workshops and handouts. This book provides a school-based approach to girl bullying that includes class lessons, small group activities and ideas for individual counseling. The class lessons include stories, activities, suggestions and reproducible student worksheets. These strategies are not just for girls and can include the entire class. The group approach includes surveys, stories, strategies, student assessments, and group activities. The individual counseling section includes situation cards, activities, student worksheets, and a simple problem solving model.

Educating for Empathy: A recent contest asked for the best ways to teach empathy

Educating for Empathy: A recent contest asked for the best ways to teach empathy | Empathy, Respect, Tolerance and Compassion | Scoop.it

A recent contest asked for the best ways to teach empathy. It received more than 600 submissions. Is this evidence of an empathy movement in education?

 

That idea has been building momentum. President Obama consistently advocated empathy during his 2008 presidential campaign and famously said it was one of his criteria for a Supreme Court justice. Over the past few years, several big books have argued for the critical importance of empathy in the world today, perhaps most notably Jeremy Rifkin’s The Empathic Civilization, which Ariana Huffington championed on the Huffington Post, writing, “Empathy is the one quality we most need if we’re going to survive and flourish in the 21st century.” At the same time, some researchers have uncovered evidence that empathy is on the decline in the United States, though in recent years, other scientists have identified empathy’s genetic basis and its ability to help us overcome differences.

How To Raise a Child of Character - Psych Central | Empathy, Respect, Tolerance and Compassion | Scoop.it
In an effort to help your child develop empathy, teach him that “What the other person does says more about him than it does about you.”

 

Teach your child this statement about others and help him to understand what it means by offering concrete examples to which he can relate. Then, to make sure he really understands this concept, ask him to share with you an example that proves this statement is true.

Empathy: Part Of The New Operating System For Our Modern World

Empathy: Part Of The New Operating System For Our Modern World | Empathy, Respect, Tolerance and Compassion | Scoop.it

Empathy has been in the news a lot recently. It has been highlighted as an antidote to school bullying and gun and gender violence, and it has become popular in the business community as a part of user-centered design. More and more, empathy is being recognized as a skill that people need to develop to better shape how society will function in the future.....

 

When Facebook first launched, its policy was to allow users to report problems, bullying or abuse to Facebook staff. With over one billion users, and an exponentially growing number of interactions, Facebook took a closer look at the problems people were reporting and found they were not so much violations of policies, but rather miscommunications and misunderstandings between members. Facebook responded by investing in teaching its community to be more empathetic, instead of leaving everyone to fend for themselves. How? By coding empathy into its social network, changing the way users interacted online.

ART- VISUAL LANGUAGE OF EMPATHY: Empathy and the act of Artistic Creation

ART- VISUAL LANGUAGE OF EMPATHY: Empathy and the act of Artistic Creation | Empathy, Respect, Tolerance and Compassion | Scoop.it

I thought I start my blog with some thoughts on how I see my relationship with art and tthe place of empathy in artistic creation. I believe that art is the universal visual language of empathy. Not empathy as we understand it today, but rather empathy in its original meaning. So let’s talk about how it all began.

 

Einfühlung, the German word for EMPATHY, means: infeeling. In was first use, in l873 by German psychologist Robert Vischer, Einfühlung names the placing of human feelings into inanimate things, plants, animals, or other humans in a specific way. So originally Einfühlung fused a human’s experience with an object’s experience that it no longer felt like the human’s own experience but instead like that of the object.

“We can move in that direction as a country, in greater polarization - black people amongst blacks, and white amongst whites, filled with hatred toward one another.

 

Or we can make an effort, as Martin Luther King did, to understand and to comprehend, and replace that violence, that stain of bloodshed that has spread across our land, with an effort to understand, compassion and love....

 

What we need in the United States is not division; what we need in the United States is not hatred; what we need in the United States is not violence and lawlessness, but is love and wisdom, and compassion toward one another.” Robert F. Kennedy

Shifting Bad Stress Into Good Stress

Shifting Bad Stress Into Good Stress | Empathy, Respect, Tolerance and Compassion | Scoop.it
We generally think of stress as a big, bad, disease-causing, killer. Yet mother nature didn't give us the stress response to kill us. She gave us the stress response to help us stay alive!

 

It is easy to understand how showing genuine compassion and helping someone who is suffering could reduce the sufferer's chronic stress. However, an additional benefit of being compassionate may also involve reducing your own stress. For example, you could be disappointed, concerned, or angry -- i.e., stressed -- about the poor performance of someone on your team. Directly taking punitive action would increase your team member's stress, and would also likely increase your own stress levels. If, however, you show compassion and intelligently work with your team member to come up with an effective solution for improving performance, then the compassionate approach is likely to reduce chronic stress not only for your team member but also for yourself.
