Lisa Evans 's curator insight, November 6, 2016 7:23 AM
As a fellow introvert and a professional speaker I found this interesting and I could relate to much of it, particularly when I was new on my public speaking journey. However, I disagree with the point Hannah makes about the energy the speaker picks up from the audience. She says " Extrovert presenters get their energy from their audience – remember they thrive on that kind of stimulation – but that’s really overwhelming for an introvert".  

Regardless of your style introvert or extravert, to be an effective speaker you must be in tune with your audience. That includes reading theri cues, watching their body language and using their energy as instant feedback.  I have never found this to be overwhelming but all part of being in the audience-centred zone that is required of me to make a meanigful connection.

A new study recently found that children who simultaneously participate in a physically engaging, time-based activity feel more positively towards each and can experience greater empathy for one another.

According to the lead author of the study, “[s]ynchrony is like a glue that brings people together — it’s a magical connector for people.

 

“‘The findings might be applied to formulate new strategies for education in our effort to build a more collaborative and empathic future society,’ she said.

"Mount Polley bankruptcy could leave BC public footing cleanup bill."

Is this going to be the norm across the land? Are we, the people left to deal with the devastation, while the mining companies profit millions before leaving nothing but a wasteland? Companies like Imperial Metals can walk away since they really didn't plan out their greed properly? This is wrong and we should all be outraged, as this is going to continue unless we do something about it.

Are you raising nice kids? A Harvard psychologist gives 5 ways to raise them to be kind | Empathy | Scoop.it

Think your kids are being raised to be kind? Think again. A Harvard researcher and psychologist has 5 ways to train your child to be kind and empathetic.

 

Earlier this year, I wrote about teaching empathy, and whether you are a parent who does so. The idea behind it is from Richard Weissbourd, a Harvard psychologist with the graduate school of education, who runs theMaking Caring Common project, aimed to help teach kids to be kind

 

1. Make caring for others a priority...

2. Provide opportunities for children to practice caring and gratitude...

3. Expand your child’s circle of concern...

4. Be a strong moral role model and mentor...

5. Guide children in managing destructive feelings..

School 'EMPATHY' program helps youth cope with anxiety, depression, and suicidal thoughts | Empathy | Scoop.it

Silverstone, a professor in the University of Alberta’s Department of Psychiatry, is the creator of EMPATHY, a pilot program that has been used in Red Deer Public Schools since 2013 to help lessen incidents of youth anxiety, depression and suicide.

 

Now, new research published in the May edition of the journal PLOS ONE gives definitive proof the program is having an impact

.

“We have had a significant decrease in suicidal thinking

 

. Kids are not thinking about harming themselves as much. It’s quite profound,” says Silverstone. “We’ve also had a decrease in the entire school ratings for anxiety and depression, and this occurred in every school, in every grade.”

Dr. Karen Dietz's curator insight, July 18, 2014 1:32 PM

Here's a handy article and tool that any organization can use. It's all about how to use narrative elements and design thinking to solve problems.


While the post is written on how nonprofits can address social problems, the insights and tools shared here apply to us all.


The tool is free to download, which is great! The article shares the story about why and how it was created, along with results people have experienced. Way cool.


Enjoy the article and use the tool.

Miklos Szilagyi's curator insight, July 19, 2014 9:50 AM

Well, though I cannot always follow all the fine-splits of the very similar approaches but all these in this attached article sounds to me very much like so called solution-focused approach (which has a root to the early '80s into Milwaukee in SFTC of Steve de Shazer and Insoo Kim Berg)... and it wouldn't bother me if somebody says that OK, however these tiny-tiny details are different... SF has the same basic idea (like on the picture) that if we are speaking about the problems (on a "problem- language") we will know lots about the problem and if we are starting to speak about the solution instead (on a "solution-language") we will know lots about the solutions... there are such ideas still that "knowing the root/cause of the problem will not necessarily lead to the solutions" or if the solution - why not through story-telling approaches - is approached/achieved, the problem(s) might simply disappear (I would emphasise here that SF people are not problem-phobic at all, only they see more good to turn more - whenever it is possible - towards the goals and solutions than towards (backwards...) to the problems...

 

One more thing and Karen will like it (I suppose)... creating (I weight my word "creating", it was so used by Chris Iveson in a latest Budapest workshop, who is a very eminent player on the SF field, author, practitioner (therapy + coaching) for 25 years) the future might give us (if properly done and I'm telling you, it's not that simple, you can have an idea from their books about this what he has written with his two London based colleagues) an "experience" about the future. If somebody would ask: What?! Experience? About the future? We could only have experiences about the past, couldn't we?! I would ask (as Chris did it) whether your "sure" past experiences are something constant in the time? Did not happen to you sometimes that past experiences are changing even signs?! (from bad to good and vice versa...) If you already had this experience you could deduce from it that we also creating our past as well... we are story teller backwards as well... well, what do you think?

 

I like the question at the beginning... it is an excellent SF question, I like it very much and I would use it (with the hopeful permission of the author...): “What would ‘happily ever after' look like to you if we made this happen?”

Teaching Children Empathy Through The Arts

Teaching Children Empathy Through The Arts | Empathy | Scoop.it

Empathy is an essential skill to connect with the people and world around you. It is also so much more than even compassion- to be truly empathetic one has to feel how it might be to be in another’s place. So how can we teach this skill, and how can we simplify it enough to teach bit effectively to children?

 

The most effective way to teach it is experientially- and the most fun way is through the arts.

 

On this Voices in the Family, we will speak with people involved in the film “The Other Side of the Fence”, a musical performed in schools to teach kids empathy experientially, and we will also speak to the founder and the director of Chicago’s Changing Worlds project- a project that goes into schools to provide artistic experiences through which kids can connect to others different than themselves.

The role of empathy in peace negotiations

The role of empathy in peace negotiations | Empathy | Scoop.it

I am raising the subject mainly because the idea of empathy needs to be more embedded than ever as we negotiate a very difficult peace process. The negotiations no longer exist in theory; they have become a reality. I am still aware of a lack of empathy among some of the stakeholders in the negotiations.

 

Empathy is about getting to the heart of the problem.

 

It is associated with a willingness to reach a negotiated settlement, which is in turn associated with the possible cost of a failure to achieve an agreement.
