A new study found that teachers who approached students with a empathetic mindset were less likely to give out suspensions.
A little bit of empathy can go a long way.
Students who get suspended from school are more likely to later drop out and face jail time. By making students stay home, school suspensions — which disproportionately impact students of color — sometimes push kids out of school and into the criminal justice system.
But there are easy ways for teachers to reduce their reliance on this punishment. A few researchers from Stanford University found that when teachers are reminded to approach students
with an empathic mindset, rates of school suspensions go down.
Dr. Lisa Flook, of the University of Wisconsin's Center for Investigating Healthy Minds, introduces Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, a practice that struggling teachers can easily use to diminish their negativity and avoid burnout.
Persona is one of the tools that is used to build a better understanding of user behavior either in UX research or in marketing research by building a virtual avatar that represents the target consumer’s characteristics.
However, achieving empathic design requires more than just drawing a virtual character that represent the target consumer, it also requires that designers put themselves in the shoes of the consumer to learn more about what they love, hate, think, and feel about the product.
This target can be achieved through building a persona empathy map that can bridge the gap between the virtual character’s persona and the real consumer’s experience.
Of course we want our kids to be compassionate and sensitive to other people’s feelings. The problem is that many kids’ “empathy potential” is greatly handicapped because they don’t have the ability to identify and express emotions.
They have tremendous difficulty feeling for the other person simply because they may not recognize the other person’s hurt, elation, discomfort, anxiety, pride, happiness, or anger.
What these kids need is an education that provides stronger emotional intelligence: an adequate vocabulary of feelings and then the encouragement to use it. Once kids are more emotionally literate and can understand their own feelings their empathy will grow, because they will be far more capable of understanding and feeling other people’s concerns and needs.

As state lawmakers work to refine parameters of what constitutes bullying, school-aged children say it’s also important for them to address consequences for kids who tease, harass or inflict injury to their classmates.
“I think [bullies] really need help from counselors,” says Ella Abney, a sixth-grader at Second Street School, who believes it would teach bullies empathy.
“Then they can understand how the [bullied] kids feel,” added SSS seventh-grader Ethan Stigers.
Both are members of the school’s Student Voice team, which works to identify problems and solutions that have a meaningful impact on their peers. As lawmakers debate bullying at the Capitol, the students hope they realize that bullying has evolved past taunts and teasing in the hallways.
