Study: Specific electrophysiological components disentangle affective sharing and empathic concern in psychopathy

Study: Specific electrophysiological components disentangle affective sharing and empathic concern in psychopathy | Empathy Circle Magazine | Scoop.it

Empathic impairment is one of the hallmarks of psychopathy, a personality dimension associated with poverty in affective reactions, lack of attachment to others, and a callous disregard for the feelings, rights, and welfare of others.


Neuroscience research on the relation between empathy and psychopathy has predominately focused on the affective sharing and cognitive components of empathy in forensic populations, and much less on empathic concern.


The current study used high-density electroencephalography in a community sample to examine the spatiotemporal neurodynamic responses when viewing people in physical distress under two subjective contexts: one evoking affective sharing, the other, empathic concern.

I have often referred to the Republicans as psychopaths, the is not hyperbole, I mean it quite literally... Empathic impairment is one of the hallmarks of psychopathy, a personality dimension associated with poverty in affective reactions, lack of attachment to others, and a callous disregard for the feelings, rights, and welfare of others.

Innovation & Constructive Change with Empathy: Amy J. Wilson and Edwin Rutsch

Amy J. Wilson is a change leader, community builder, movement maker, and an empathy advocate. Amy specializes in building and sustaining cultures of innovation with a social good mission and is the author of Empathy for Change.

"If our bodies are wired for human connection, empathy is our beating heart. Often thought of as a “soft skill,” empathy is a superpower that I’ve learned to wield for good and accept that it’s my biggest strength.

I think of empathy as more than just “stepping into another’s shoes” it’s about feeling with each other to act, if needed. Empathy is responding to the thoughts and emotions of others with the purpose of meeting each other’s needs."

Over the last 7 years I have had three main areas that I have focused on within my career so far:
- Learning design (especially for learners who find learning challenging)
- Literacy (looking at ways to weave reading comprehension, design thinking and gaming)
- Empathy (exploring ways to having understanding for our learners and ourselves to add tools to our toolkit)

And as you can see in the visual above I plan to use this background to create different learning opportunities where we can learn together in different mediums to give you options on how you would like to take part in the learning from podcast sessions to weekly twitter chat and ideas for lesson design.

8 Week Series: Empathic Listening 

8 Week Series: Empathic Listening  | Empathy Circle Magazine | Scoop.it
Topics for the course:
What does it really mean to listen with empathy?
Practice putting on new ears and learning to listen for feelings and needs. See how much easier it is to not take things personally when you can listen for the feelings and needs behind what someone is saying.

You will be introduced to the definition of empathy in the framework of Mindful Compassionate Dialogue. You will learn 12 essential aspects of empathy and how to identify what is often confused with empathy. You will have an opportunity to name what gets in your way of offering empathy.

Building a vocabulary for empathy
Part of learning to give and receive empathy is learning a vocabulary. You will learn some common "faux feelings" that can lead empathy astray into blame and shame. You will engage in exercises to help you learn the list of universal needs as a living language rather than a concept.

Effective innovation requires these 3 empathetic components to maximize potential and outcomes.

by Sue Bevan Baggott & Jennifer Scheehle 

LEVERAGING EMPATHY TOIMPROVE PEOPLE’S LIVES IN MEANINGFUL WAYS

Empathy is critical to the human side of innovation and essential to creating new products, services, or solutions that add meaningful value to people’s lives. Recentering on human needs and desires builds empathy.

“All of our work and research at Cloverleaf has taught us that creating new products and tackling complicated problems only happens well when people with differing perspectives can come together, listen, understand and morph their ideas into the strongest solution,“ says Kirsten Moorefield, Cofounder & COO of Cloverleaf a software service dedicated to building thriving teams.

 Empathy vs. sympathy

By JOHN DELONY

Empathy and sympathy are both ways we respond to the suffering of people around us. But there’s a crucial difference: Sympathy is acknowledging someone else’s pain, but empathy is choosing to feel the pain with them. Sympathy says, “I care about you,” while empathy says, “I’m hurting with you.”     

Sympathy is being aware of and sensitive to the needs and suffering of others. It’s recognizing—or even honoring—the reality of a tough situation. But although you’re expressing sadness, you still have an emotional boundary around yourself to keep from feeling what the sufferer is feeling.  

Empathy is understanding and vicariously experiencing what others are going through. It’s sitting in their pain. It takes creativity to empathize, because you’ve got to imagine yourself in the situation of the other person and feel the heaviness of their burden.

Psychologists and therapists say empathy is generally more beneficial to the receiver than sympathy, though both can be socially positive.

 

While subtle behavioral differences might seem obvious to therapists, counselors, and psychologists, it's not so easy for everyone else. So we spoke to Atlanta-based therapist Habiba Zaman, LPC, NCC, Pepperdine University professor of psychology Steven M. Sultanoff, Ph.D., and licensed clinical psychologist Bruce L. Thiessen, Ph.D., about simple ways to define sympathy and empathy—and their relationship to compassion.

Mending Walls in K-12: Teaching Empathy & Creative Collaboration | VPM

Mending Walls in K-12: Teaching Empathy & Creative Collaboration | VPM | Empathy Circle Magazine | Scoop.it
Hamilton Glass, Richmond artist and founder of the Mending Walls RVA Mural Project, and Partners in the Arts, an integrated education program at the University of Richmond, are offering the free, online workshop, Mending Walls in K-12: Teaching Empathy & Creative Collaboration, with the support of VPM, on September 14 at 7:00 p.m.

Glass founded Mending Walls in 2020 as a response to the community unrest following the murder of George Floyd and the ongoing conversation around racial and social justice in our country. Mending Walls pairs artists of different cultural backgrounds to create murals that not only honor the citizens’ frustration but spark important conversations in our community about our individual lived experiences.

The artists’ collaboration always begins with a conversation aimed at empathy and healing.

In this two-hour online session, Glass and Partners in the Arts bring the Mending Walls method to Virginia K-12 educators. The hope is to provide a framework wherein students build empathy through discourse and merge diverse approaches to create something together.

It’s Going To Take More Than Empathy To Eradicate Racism

It’s Going To Take More Than Empathy To Eradicate Racism | Empathy Circle Magazine | Scoop.it
Empathy requires one to live vicariously through another, experiencing the feelings, thoughts and attitudes that they are also feeling. Our empathy obsession needs to be studied and scrutinized more.

 

One of the main arguments against empathy is that you can understand that someone is in pain without actually experiencing that pain yourself. The race of a person and our individual evaluation of that person can shape our feelings and influence the amount of empathy we feel for them

Empathy Is The Most Important Leadership Skill According To Research | Empathy Circle Magazine | Scoop.it
Empathy has always been a critical skill for leaders, but it is taking on a new level of meaning and priority. Far from a soft approach it can drive significant business results.

You always knew demonstrating empathy is positive for people, but new research demonstrates its importance for everything from innovation to retention. Great leadership requires a fine mix of all kinds of skills to create the conditions for engagement, happiness and performance, and empathy tops the list of what leaders must get right.

In recent years, empathy has been regularly listed as a “soft skill” being sought by employers, and it’s easy to see why. When staff members treat each other with understanding and respect, it not only comes with boosts to morale but also to efficiency and productivity, as the team is more likely to provide each other with proactive support. Further, employees who are able to tap into empathy can provide more responsive customer service.

Hysterical Empathy

Hysterical Empathy | Empathy Circle Magazine | Scoop.it
In the past few years, a number of prominent writers have taken on the subject of empathy. Most did so in the contexts of art and literature, and often with some edge of criticism. Namwali Serpell’s “The Banality of Empathy,” for the New York Review of Books in 2019, is a case in point. For Serpell, a charismatic Zambian writer, the emotional empathy induced by art too readily brings about “the relishing of suffering from those who are safe from it.” We end up idly and creepily occupying subjects, especially marginalized ones, and the resultant emotional relief distracts us from “real inequities.” If even witnessing suffering firsthand doesn’t always “spark good deeds,” why, she asks, would art?

Serpell finds clarity in psychologist Paul Bloom’s distinction between cognitive empathy and emotional empathy.

Daryl Cameron, assistant professor of psychology and research associate in the Rock Ethics Institute at Penn State, wants to understand when, how and why people choose to avoid empathy in their daily lives.

Often conflated with compassion — sympathy or concern for others’ suffering or misfortune — empathy is the experience of understanding and actually sharing the feelings of someone else. Empathy, Cameron said, can be thought of as feeling with a person, rather than feeling for them.

Study finds people often avoid feeling compassion for others

Study finds people often avoid feeling compassion for others | Empathy Circle Magazine | Scoop.it

Researchers during a series of studies found that given the option, people often chose to avoid feeling compassion for others. They also reported that doing so was mentally effortful and which were linked to their choices. The findings of the studies were published in the 'Journal of Experimental Psychology.'

The researchers also found that if the situation involved a person they were close to, such as a family member, people were more likely to choose to feel compassion and that being compassionate in this context was easier. Julian Scheffer, a Penn State graduate and postdoctoral research fellow at the University of California, Berkeley, said the findings suggest a need for new ways to encourage people to open themselves up to feeling compassion for others -- especially in times of division and hardship.

"Experiencing compassion often leads to wanting to help others and improve their welfare, but we found that people may be unwilling to experience compassion and find it mentally taxing," Scheffer said
