Museum Commons: The Empathetic Museum: Help Widen the Conversation

Museum Commons: The Empathetic Museum: Help Widen the Conversation | Social Neuroscience Advances | Scoop.it

Following up on  June 7 and June 29  posts on empathy in museums, six museum colleagues from a variety of areas in the field are proposing a session called “The Empathetic Museum”  for the  May 2014 American Alliance of Museums Conference in Seattle, WA.  I’m one of the panelists, so this is a shameless plea for your support.  Since some of my posts on empathy have been the most viewed in this blog’s history I’m thinking that this topic resonates with the readership and  that you’ll endorse giving attention to this topic at AAM. Since the Alliance has begun using crowd-sourcing as one way of selecting conference sessions, anyone who has an AAM Profile (don’t have to be a member) can log in to thewebsite, create a profile if they don’t have one, access proposals, and “like” the ones they would like to see on the May program Gretchen Jennings  
I'm a longtime museum professional, having worked as an educator, administrator, and exhibition project director in a variety of museums - art, history, and science.

Self-Compassion, Part III: Growing Tenderheartedness

Self-Compassion, Part III: Growing Tenderheartedness | Social Neuroscience Advances | Scoop.it
Do you treat yourself gently? Do you acknowledge the sources of distress in your life? Learn self-compassion and begin to heal.

 

This article is the third in a series that aims to look at the concept and development of self-compassion. We’ve defined compassion as a tenderhearted recognition of pain or distress, coupled with a desire to alleviate it. The first article looked at the concept of compassion as a whole while the second explored growing compassion through recognizing limits. This article will look at the first part of our definition of compassion: having tenderheartedness toward your distress.

 

The type of tenderheartedness that is integral to compassion is more than a soft emotion: it is a relational stance. It is easy to forget about and neglect the relationships we have with ourselves, all too often ignoring this relationship or bullying ourselves. For example, many survivors of trauma will repeat the words an abusive individual once hurled at them, and in turn will develop an abusive relationship with themselves. Self-compassion stands in opposition to this and offers a gentler way to interact with yourself.

David McGavock's curator insight, September 4, 2013 5:27 PM

This is the 100th episode and Ginger interviews some avid listeners before the Fernandez interview.

 

This is a worthwhile interview. They discuss a common sense approach to brain fitness, including four pillers of brain health: Aerobic exercise, Nutrition (without supplements), Mental stimulation (doing something that is a stretch), and Stress management (emotional regulation through breathing awareness, meditation, yoga, etc). Basic things that are easy to do but easy to overlook in our busy daze.

Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's curator insight, September 4, 2013 4:19 AM

The poet, novelist, screenwriter, playwright and games writer will find similar rhetorical devices being applied in different ways.

 

What sort of emotions am I talking about? In his essay on emotion in film, film theorist Ed Tan speaks about the difference between what he describes as ‘artefact emotion’ and ‘fiction emotion’ (Tan). Artefact emotions are ‘non-empathetic’ and occur in response to sensory pleasures such as the appearance of the actors, costumes, scenery, and special effects.

 

If you are working with any kind of story telling this is very interesting reading. Click for full article.
