The Secret to Building Empathy in College Students

The Secret to Building Empathy in College Students | Relaxed school | Scoop.it

by Tim Elmore 

Storytelling, to a degree, can provide instruction closer to a real-life experience than a didactic lecture full of statistics. Here are some simple suggestions on how to capitalize on storytelling as you teach or lead students....

 

If you have your ear to the ground at all these days, you've heard of the significance of stories among students. Narrative has replaced so many forms of argument and persuasion. I wonder, however, if you've ever discovered why? Further, have you read how telling stories actually cultivates empathy in students?

 

A new neuroscience study may explain why telling stories builds empathy and why, when you tell a good one, people act as if they're watching it unfold before them.

This thing we call empathy - Sensitive and Extraordinary Kids

This thing we call empathy - Sensitive and Extraordinary Kids | Relaxed school | Scoop.it
This thing we call empathy is strong in our little HSCs. No matter how it expresses itself, it's important that we recognize it, understand it, nurture it.

 

As an adult, I can confirm that these strong empathetic feelings cease to be brought up by objects.

 

. Yes, sometimes it makes us sad when we lose or break or sell something, but it’s sadness we feel, not empathy. Having to sell an old car makes us sad because it was part of our lives for so long, because of the memories that come with it, because of the stories it gave us, and not because we are hurting its feelings (unless you make the mistake of naming your car like I did my poor old Betsie). Instead, our empathy is incredibly strong for people, and all those other things we used to feel change into deep love and respect for things, animals and nature.

John Michel's curator insight, January 11, 1:44 PM

Happiness without meaning is characterized by a relatively shallow and often self-oriented life, in which things go well, needs and desires are easily satisfied, and difficult or taxing entanglements are avoided, the report noted.

Using Dialogue Circles to Support Classroom Management

Using Dialogue Circles to Support Classroom Management | Relaxed school | Scoop.it

Promoting Positive Behavior

Dialogue circles are gatherings in which all participants sit in a circle facing each other to facilitate open, direct communication.

Dialogue circles provide a safe, supportive space where all school community members can talk about sensitive topics, work through differences, and build consensus.
 

At Glenview Elementary School, circles are part of a program called Restorative Justice, which is aimed at building collaboration, respect, and positive behavior among students. The circles were implemented in classrooms slowly, and after two years, there was a marked improvement in classroom behavior.

Sowing Empathy and Justice in Schools Through Restorative Practices

The biggest thing we do is create empathy, and the way you get empathy is by talking about how you feel and by listening to how others feel,”

 

says Danna. “I tell them that you have to understand each other’s perspectives.

 

It doesn’t mean you have to be friends. But you do have to figure out how to get through your day together. It’s a very assertive way of teaching them to take care of themselves.”

There is a road from one heart to another

 

We also use empathy when hunting, not only for food and animals, but also for ideas in the business world.

 

  It is a way for us to stay ahead of the game by thinking like another to predict the next steps ahead.

 

Empathy is something that we do every day
without even realizing it.

 

Empathy is a tool that when used for the greater good can provide us with creative thinking skills that might lead us to new scientific discoveries, better designed products that are good for us and also for our environment, or might lead us to positive behavior change which might simply enable us to be better friends, parents, and global citizens.

If it works, it works.

Don't care what the conservatives say about it.

 

Gotta stay focused with what works, as opposed to what you feel you need.

 

And that's precisely what conservatives are so terrible at doing.

 

No consideration for the other.

 

Think about it.
