How Disasters and Trauma Can Affect Children’s Empathy | TIME.com

How Disasters and Trauma Can Affect Children’s Empathy | TIME.com | Psychology, Sociology & Neuroscience | Scoop.it

Do children become more kind and empathetic after a disaster— or does the experience make them more focus more on self-preservation?

 

The first study to examine the question in an experimental way shows that children’s reactions may depend on their age.

The ability to study the altruistic and empathetic tendencies of youth before and after a natural disaster emerged after an earthquake struck in May 2008 in Mianyang, China. Scientists from the U.S. and Canada were already collaborating with Chinese researchers in the town in Sichuan province on a study of altruistic behavior when the earthquake, which measured 8.0 on the Richter scale, killed some 87,000 people, including many children.

It’s a question that’s perplexed philosophers for centuries and scientists for decades: Where does consciousness come from? We know it exists, at least in ourselves. But how it arises from chemistry and electricity in our brains is an unsolved mystery.

Gossip and Ostracism Promote Cooperation in Groups

Gossip and Ostracism Promote Cooperation in Groups | Psychology, Sociology & Neuroscience | Scoop.it

"The widespread existence of cooperation is difficult to explain because individuals face strong incentives to exploit the cooperative tendencies of others. In the research reported here, we examined how the spread of reputational information through gossip promotes cooperation in mixed-motive settings. Results showed that individuals readily communicated reputational information about others, and recipients used this information to selectively interact with cooperative individuals and ostracize those who had behaved selfishly, which enabled group members to contribute to the public good with reduced threat of exploitation. Additionally, ostracized individuals responded to exclusion by subsequently cooperating at levels comparable to those who were not ostracized. These results suggest that the spread of reputational information through gossip can mitigate egoistic behavior by facilitating partner selection, thereby helping to solve the problem of cooperation even in noniterated interactions."

Howard Rheingold's curator insight, January 28, 4:01 PM

Cooperation in groups often depends on "altruistic punishment" on non-cooperators (a mild example is the way shame can enforce norms -- in societies where spitting on the sidewalk is considered shameful, there is less spitting on the sidewalk). Or think about your emotions when you see someone cutting in line. Although punishment (maybe "sanctions" is a less loaded term) and gossip (perhaps "communication about reputation" is less loaded) are seen by many as negative traits, the research described in this abstract (full text ) presents evidence for the role of gossip and ostracism in promoting cooperation.

reddit»»non-conformity and free thinking as a mental disorder? | Psychology, Sociology & Neuroscience | Scoop.it

Is nonconformity and freethinking a mental illness? According to the newest addition of the DSM-IV (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders), it certainly is. The manual identifies a new mental illness called “oppositional defiant disorder” or ODD. Defined as an “ongoing pattern of disobedient, hostile and defiant behavior,” symptoms include questioning authority, negativity, defiance, argumentativeness, and being easily annoyed. http://theunboundedspirit.com/nonconformity-and-freethinking-now-considered-mental-illnesses/
