Sibling cooperation in earwig families provides clues to the early evolution of social behavior | Psychology, Sociology & Neuroscience | Scoop.it
Looking at the question of how social behavior has developed over the course of evolution, scientists have gained new insights from the study of earwigs. "Young earwig offspring don't simply compete for food. Rather the siblings share what is available amongst themselves, especially when the mother is absent," explained one of the researchers.

Why Empathy is Essential to a Culture of Health

Why Empathy is Essential to a Culture of Health | Psychology, Sociology & Neuroscience | Scoop.it
Empathy is the lifeblood of any system of health—it gives us all a shared stake in being healthy and helping others to thrive as well.

 

Building empathy has been a critical strategy in my household of late—not only because it helps motivate them, but also because it is an important part of their social development. Lately I have been thinking about empathy on a larger scale, beyond my household, and how critical it is to building a Culture of Health.

 

====================

Most people don't think about empathy
as  a key to health, but it is
profoundly important.

Keaton Toscano's curator insight, April 14, 1:05 AM

Empathy is an important attitude to have as a teacher as well, for many reasons. You do not want your students to bring their problems into the classroom, it needs to be a safe place. You also need to empathize with the fact that you are here because you have already mastered the required material, they are trying to understand it through you. Not everyone is going to respond well to your teaching style, let alone how YOU understand the information, you'll be doing a bit of catering as a teacher, as is to be expected.
