Understanding empathy: a global perspective

Understanding empathy: a global perspective | social work | Scoop.it

Imagine – while eating lunch, you observe that a spider is slowly crawling across a friend’s forearm. Immediately, your own arm tingles uncomfortably, but when you briefly glance downwards, no such spider is crawling up your own arm. Your mind has seemingly tricked your body into experiencing the sensation. Or, you are visiting a hospital nursery, and one newborn begins to cry. Immediately, and for no apparent reason, other babies respond to the first child’s cries with cries of their own. Soon, the nursery is overwhelmed by distressed babies....

 

Recent discoveries have led to the discovery of neurons that may contribute to empathy in social interaction. These cells, referred to as “mirror neurons,” fire when an individual observes somebody executing an action, resulting in the individual experiencing the process vicariously ...

How to Listen to Your Child, Even When Listening is Hard

How to Listen to Your Child, Even When Listening is Hard | social work | Scoop.it
When your child's upset, you want to DO something to help. But the best remedy is being quiet.

 

 

Observation: all the experts agree that empathy requires being capable of realizing the state of being of a person without saying a word. Prioritize the emotional state of your child, looking out for such things as an unusual greeting when she gets home from shool or an abnormal expression on her face. In this instant, and in the most natural way possible, we should say the most open phrase possible

Positive Psychology News Daily » Shame Resilience Theory

Positive Psychology News Daily » Shame Resilience Theory | social work | Scoop.it

Brown asserts that empathy and shame are on opposite ends of a continuum. Shame results in fear, blame (of self or others), and disconnection. Empathy is cultivated by courage, compassion, and connection, and is the most powerful antidote to shame.

 

Brown references Theresa Wiseman’s four defining attributes of empathy:

 

1. to be able to see the world as others see it
2. to be nonjudgmental
3. to understand another person’s feelings
to communicate your understanding of that person’s feelings
4. Brown defines empathy as a skill, and so she stresses actively practicing giving and receiving empathy.

 

..Shame separates and isolates. Practicing shame resilience reconnects us, where we find courage, empathy, and compassion.
