Video: Why Dogs Really Do Feel Your Pain : Discovery News | Jeremiah's Hope for Kindness | Scoop.it

Dogs may empathize with humans more than any other animal, including humans themselves, several new studies suggest.

 

The latest research, published in the journal Animal Cognition, found that pet dogs may truly be man (or woman's) best friend if a person is in distress. That distressed individual does not even have to be someone the dog knows.

 

"I think there is good reason to suspect dogs would be more sensitive to human emotion than other species," co-author Deborah Custance told Discovery News. "We have domesticated dogs over a long period of time. We have selectively bred them to act as our companions.

Applying Empathy in Your Relationship with Your Child

Applying Empathy in Your Relationship with Your Child | Jeremiah's Hope for Kindness | Scoop.it


You can assume that your child wants and needs to emotionally connect with you on a regular basis. That is a developmental fact based upon solid research. Children need to feel understood and empathy is your most potent way of making that emotional connection with him.

 

Listen for the emotion

As a starting point, you want to begin listening for the emotion in your child's interaction with you. It's not always easy to pinpoint because we tend to focus on the content of a conversation instead of the emotion. But, if you think about it, the feeling behind the words is usually at the heart of what we want others to really understand.

Young Peace Leaders: Cultivating Empathy

Young Peace Leaders: Cultivating Empathy | Jeremiah's Hope for Kindness | Scoop.it

In order to gain the perspective of another person and explore the quality of empathy, middle school students do an exercise that helps their development of core values in this video from The Dalai Lama Center for Ethics and Transformative Values.

 

Students choose an actual shoe and imagine the life of that shoe. As they write about the shoe—figuratively “walking” in those shoes—they reflect on how the experience helped them become more understanding and compassionate toward others.

Empathy is at the heart of what it means to be human. It’s a foundation for acting ethically, for good relationships of many kinds, for loving well, and for professional success. And it’s key to preventing bullying and many other forms of cruelty.

 

Empathy begins with the capacity to take another perspective, to walk in another’s shoes. But it is not just that capacity. Salespeople, politicians, actors and marketers are often very skilled at taking other perspectives but they may not care about others.

 

Con men and torturers take other perspectives so they can exploit people’s weaknesses. Empathy includes valuing other perspectives and people. It’s about perspective-taking and compassion.


How can parents’ cultivate empathy? The following are five guideposts based on research and the wisdom of practitioners.


1. Empathize with your child and model empathy for others...

2. Make caring for others a priority and set high ethical expectations...

3. Provide opportunities for children to practice empathy...

4. Expand your child’s circle of concern...

5. Help children develop self-control and manage feelings effectively...

Empathy, Race and Trials - the downside of unconscious empathy


I've been thinking this week about unconscious empathy.

Unconscious empathy is when I feel an immediate connection with a person - maybe because I see or hear something about them that reminds me of myself.  This kind of empathy is not intentional; and because it's not intentional I believe that it's just too easy for me to make mistakes when doing it.
