Compassion Programs at UCSD Center for Mindfulness

Compassion Programs at UCSD Center for Mindfulness | Nonprofit and Business Management | Scoop.it
Learn about the compassion programs offered by the UC San Diego Health System.

 

Two important components of Mindfulness are wisdom (clear seeing) and compassion (the heartful desire to alleviate suffering). Wisdom and compassion are often described as the two wings of a bird. Without either wing the bird is unable to fly. Life sometimes brings with it painful events both large and small. What we can do is learn to hold what happens with warmth and kindness.

 

Toward that end, we offer mindfulness-based programs that aid us in developing our capacity for compassion.

Our programs are designed to address the quality of attention that we pay to what arises and to actively cultivate the capacity for kind and compassionate action in response to difficulty. Each option is designed to build skills in a particular area. A brief description of each program, including benefits and the format offered follows.

Donors have unlimited access to information. Yup. That’s what the digital revolution hath wrought. You can’t hide anything from folks.  And they don’t need you to spoon feed it to them.  So, what do they want from you?  Transparency and successful outcomes from your organization. Connection and authenticity from you.

Dan Zahavi and Edwin Rutsch: How to Build a Culture of Empathy

Dan Zahavi and Edwin Rutsch: How to Build a Culture of Empathy | Nonprofit and Business Management | Scoop.it

Dan Zahavi is a Professor in the Department of Media, Cognition, and Communication at the University of Copenhagen, where he specializes in the social dimension of self-experience; the nature of empathy and its relevance for social cognition; the relation between phenomenology and naturalism; selfhood and unity of consciousness with particular focus on no-self doctrines. Dan is the director of the Danish National Research Foundation’s Center for Subjectivity Research.

 

The center has a grant for an "Empathy and Interpersonal Understanding" project that runs from 2011 to 2015. The aim of the project is to contribute to investigate two questions:


1) What is empathy and what role does it play in interpersonal understanding?


2) To what extent does interpersonal understanding presuppose a common social and cultural background?
 

Dan has written numerous articles on the nature of empathy and the center is hosting workshops and conferences on the topic. One conference being held in May 2013, is on the  "Phenomenology of Empathy".

Committed to Oprah, Homer, or House: Using the Investment Model to Understand Parasocial Relationships.

People can develop close relationships with media figures viewed on TV. Across two studies we examined the extent to which satisfaction with, alternatives to, and investments in such parasocial relationships (PSR) account for feelings of commitment toward favored TV characters. In Study 1, satisfaction and investments positively predicted commitment to fictional TV characters, whereas the alternative of not following any TV character negatively predicted commitment to the PSR. In Study 2, we tested the bases of the investment model as predictors of commitment to fictional (e.g., Homer Simpson) versus nonfictional (e.g., Oprah Winfrey) TV characters. As in Study 1, for both fictional and nonfictional characters, commitment level was significantly predicted by levels of satisfaction and investments. However, the alternative of not following any character was significantly associated with commitment only for fictional characters. Results support the use of the investment model to understand processes underlying PSRs. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2013 APA, all rights reserved)

The Economic Value of Foundations and How to Approach the Question

The Economic Value of Foundations and How to Approach the Question | Nonprofit and Business Management | Scoop.it

Erika Harrison's curator insight, August 5, 2013 7:50 PM

"In fact, that’s the role that makes foundations invaluable: their role as risk capital, with their ability to experiment and take chances without being overly concerned with economic metrics. The ability of foundations to take chances on things that government can’t do and that charitable giving generally doesn’t do is a selling point with legislators. You don’t always need to boil foundation grantmaking—or nonprofit program activity, for that matter—down to a bunch of quantitative metrics. Sometimes, when you do, you fall into a trap where what you’re measuring shapes and determines what you actually do. The likelihood that foundations and nonprofits caught up in too much emphasis on metrics might shy away from thorny problems that don’t lend themselves to easy quantification and measurable causality is a serious concern in the nonprofit sector".

Mentoring in the Workplace: Empathy by the Back Door

Mentoring in the Workplace: Empathy by the Back Door | Nonprofit and Business Management | Scoop.it

While there are many private sector mentoring programmes in place, these are too often seen as 'nice-to-have', but not essential.

 

Successful mentoring relationships often transcend this as mentors gain an understanding of the world view of another generation and equally, mentees can help senior colleagues to see new perspectives and shifts in societal behaviour, for instance, the growing importance of social networks. These partnerships, inevitably, bring a new level of empathy into the workplace as greater understanding between groups of people develops. This empathy can increase mutual respect for co-workers and remind us of the nuances of an individual's needs, as opposed to just focusing on generic rules and regulations.

Tech Learning : 5 Tips for Grant Writing Strategies

Appendices
Be careful with the use of appendices. Some proposal writers try to use the appendix to place information that should have been included in the body of the proposal. The appendix should not be used to get around any page limitations stated in the RFP.
In general, the appendix might include: résumés of key personnel that will implement the grant; endorsements and letters of support; verifi cations; assurances; and diagrams or illustrations. It is not uncommon to supply documentation of your non-profi t status. Some proposals will ask for you a list of collaborating partners.
Do not put new information in the appendix. Your grant application must stand on its own. Any information in the appendix should further verify or backup the text of your application.
Grant Forms
The forms that are part of the RFP guidelines will often serve as an outline for your grant narrative. Most RFPs will also include a procedure for the application submission. These directions will guide you and help you plan ahead. Additionally, the RFP will describe formatting issues. Follow all directions carefully. Many applications have additional components, usually a set of forms and assurances. It is imperative that you read all of the directions (several times) so that you can get going on these additional pieces.
Scoring Criteria, Rubrics and the Writing Process
Scoring criteria are often included in the grant request for proposals. The scoring criteria is often further described in a scoring rubric. The rubric may further break down the criteria and provide the grant readers a score range on which to judge this element.
Under each category in the rubric, a statement is provided as an example. This detailed rubric is both good and bad for the grant seeker. On the good side, the grant funder is telling you exactly what you need to do. What is bad is that you may be tempted to simply write the “Makes a Strong Case” statement without really describing what you plan to do. Be careful not to fall into this trap. For example, stating that the narrative describes a comprehensive action plan to share successful program implementation strategies and outcomes with stakeholders at the conclusion of the program does not tell the grant reader how you plan to do this. It does not say how parents, community members, and school districts will actually be able to share in the lessons learned.
