To reduce student suspensions, teachers should try being more empathetic

To reduce student suspensions, teachers should try being more empathetic | Nonviolent Communication (NVC) | Scoop.it

By Emily Underwood

 

One group of math teachers completed a short online exercise emphasizing empathy, which included readings about research that showed how caring relationships with adults contributed to student success. It also included writing prompts in which teachers shared their insights about empathy in the classroom.

 

For example, one teacher wrote: “I feel I need to earn my students’ respect and trust. I know many of them have had poor experiences with past teachers so I need to prove to my students that I am there for them and will not let them fail.” A second group completed a similar exercise. But instead of empathy, they read and wrote about the importance of technology to student development.

 

In contrast, only 4.6% of students whose math teacher had completed the online exercise on empathy were suspended, the team reports today in theProceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

Dorothy Retha Cook's curator insight, April 25, 9:10 PM

You cant get out of a person whats not in them . there are adults in authoritty positions that do not know how to give or receive love and the job they have is just that a job which they see as something they do to meet their needs. Some of them may have been abused and refused to even acknowledge they were and they are in denial about anyone elses abuse because if not they have to feel and deal with their own abuse issues and there are so many othersthat are out in the world with a smile on their faces but crying on the inside and afraid to admit they have hurts and pains to that they.have and endure because of what others may say or think about them and who they are per job or title but then to do we really show empathy before or after judging the persons and do we allow the judging to set our how much they are worth our empathy while forgetting no matter who we are somebody has had  and continue to have empathy on them / us to.

Residential Empathy Intensive -A Deeper Dive into Empathy, the Breath of Compassion

Residential Empathy Intensive -A Deeper Dive into Empathy, the Breath of Compassion | Nonviolent Communication (NVC) | Scoop.it


This training is intended to support participants in having a deeper integration of empathy. In a supportive, community environment, participants experience challenge, guidance and support in the practice of empathy and seeing our world empathically.

 

Throughout our time together we will learn to increase our capacity for being present, learn to focus our awareness, and develop the ability to work with our own capabilities and humanity, in real-time situations.

Feelings and needs are the focus of empathy, so our relationship to them directly influences the quality and depth of our empathy. At this intensive, through practice and exercise, we will broaden and enrich our understanding and experience of these “life energies” thereby deepening our practice of empathy. Throughout the retreat, we will build on that work with well-defined empathy processes to bring a fruitful, sustainable practice of empathy into your life.

Empathy 101: Five Tips for Supporting People in Grief

Empathy 101: Five Tips for Supporting People in Grief | Nonviolent Communication (NVC) | Scoop.it
In my perfect universe, everyone would be taught how to approach a grieving person with empathy and to really think before they do or say something that may unintentionally contribute to their suffering.


I do understand that another person can’t “make” you feel anything, that each person has the responsibility for their reactions to people and situations in their lives.


However, there are times when tact, good manners, and compassion are sorely lacking in our society and a little grief awareness and sensitivity training are in order. Think of it as Empathy 101….

Empathy Meter Introduction

Empathy Meter Introduction | Nonviolent Communication (NVC) | Scoop.it
Empathy is one of the most challenging parts of Nonviolent Communication to teach. I wanted to come up with a way for people to practice empathy responses.


The empathy meter shows my guess as to how it would feel to receive that response. The way I came up with the numbers and emotions is I used the emotional scales to assign a number from 1 to 22 to the emotion the person making the original statement is feeling. I used my own emotion I would be experiencing if I were making that statement. I also added an intensity component to help clarify the feeling.


The goal is to guess which statements will help the person feel better. You will probably notice many of the statements which are commonly used, might lead to the person feeling worse.


Emotions 1


(Joy) ⇒ 7 (Contentment) are positive emotions.8

(Boredom) ⇒ 13

(Doubt) are the milder negative emotions. The stronger negative emotions are 14

(Worry) ⇒ 20

(Jealousy), mostly outward directed. The strongest negative emotions are 21

(Guilt) & 22 (Depression) which are inner directed.

In Memoriam: Marshall Rosenberg

In Memoriam: Marshall Rosenberg | Nonviolent Communication (NVC) | Scoop.it

By Rhonda Magee 


Psychologist Marshall Rosenberg died on Saturday, February 7th. Rosenberg was the creator of Nonviolent Communication and the founder and director of educational services for the Center for Nonviolent Communication. He was 80 years old.


Marshall Rosenberg dedicated his life to the study and practice of the conditions that bring about peace. As a consequence, he knew well the critical, sometimes life-saving importance of emotionally-intelligent, awareness-based communication.


Dr. Rosenberg drew on his own painful experiences in racially-divided Detroit and his training in psychology to develop Nonviolent Communication, a particular approach to addressing conflict that emphasizes listening with empathy, naming and expressing feelings in responsible ways, and recognizing our common humanity, even in the midst of our most difficult moments together.

The Skills of Compassion - Mediate Your Life | Nonviolent Communication (NVC) | Scoop.it

When:

Where:
YogaKula 1700 Shattuck Ave Berkeley, CA 94709


Become the person you want to be, and create the life and world you long for. To do this requires many conversations with yourself and with others in which there is often conflict, struggle, and hurt. The challenges of conflict, however, have the power to lead to growth and transformation, and to new possibilities, if you know how to navigate the stormy seas and rough terrains, and create connection and collaboration.


The focus of this introduction is learning how to return to presence and self-connection when experiencing the fight-or-flight stress response, and respond with the skills of Nonviolent Communication (NVC), a “3-chair” model, and “maps” for navigating conversations with yourself and others to contribute to healing and the world you want.
