The Role of Empathy in Crime, Policing, and Justice

The Role of Empathy in Crime, Policing, and Justice | Miscellany | Scoop.it

Posick’s research focuses on the role of emotions in behavior with a particular emphasis on delinquency and criminal justice. This research was spurred by his involvement with organizations working with offenders and victims.

 

Article: The Role of Empathy in Crime, Policing, and Justice

http://j.mp/XbOHV5

Empathy refers to a person’s ability to understand the emotions of others and share in their feelings. Researchers in many fields have shown that empathy – or its absence – matters greatly in many aspects of social life. For example, empathetic people are more likely to have strong ties to family members and others with whom they regularly work or interact. And individuals capable of empathy have higher self-esteem and enjoy life more fully. The flip side is also true: people who have trouble empathizing with others tend to suffer from poorer mental health and have less fulfilling social relationships.


Researchers are showing that empathy also matters in crime and punishment, and recent findings suggest important steps that can be taken to reduce juvenile delinquency and improve relationships between communities and police.
How Empathy Matters...

 

Empathetic people are less likely to engage in delinquency or crime.....

Empathy affects how people think about crime and punishment in complex ways....

Empathy and perceptions of empathy help to shape the interactions of police and  members of the communities they are assigned to protect.....

What is Strategy? Three simple rules to get you started

What is Strategy? Three simple rules to get you started | Miscellany | Scoop.it

What is business strategy?  Whether you are totally new to strategy or have been around it for years, there can be a lot of confusion and misconceptions about real business strategy.  Many make the mistake of equating business strategy with market strategy, focusing strategy efforts on “how to get and keep customers” while ignoring some of the foundational strategy prerequisites.  Others confuse business goals and planning with strategy itself.
