(Empathic Family) Using Empathy to Connect with Your Kids

(Empathic Family) Using Empathy to Connect with Your Kids | Empathy Circle Magazine | Scoop.it
Positive parenting educators and mental health therapists talk a lot about empathy. When when parents want to know how to respond when their kids are angry or anxious, I suggest responding with empathy first.

I tell parents to think of empathy as “finding the feeling” in what their child is saying or experiencing.


If your child is upset, you could say, “You’re so mad that Sophie took the marker without asking!” When you respond with empathy, you help your child put their feelings into words and make them feel that you understand.


Here are some empathy tips:
  • Be Present:
  • Wait for Calm: 
  • Connect:

Parscale: Trump’s Biggest 'Error' Was Not Showing Empathy on COVID -- 'Would Have Won in a Landslide’

Parscale: Trump’s Biggest 'Error' Was Not Showing Empathy on COVID -- 'Would Have Won in a Landslide’ | Empathy Circle Magazine | Scoop.it
Former Trump 2020 campaign manager Brad Parscale said during his Fox News interview Tuesday night on “The Story” that he pushed for President Donald Trump to show more public empathy about the coronavirus pandemic, which Parscale believes would have resulted in a landslide win.

Parscale said, “One, two percent — suburban men and women we lost in the suburbs, Philly suburbs, Atlanta suburbs I think that goes to one thing, a decision on COVID to go for opening the economy first is public empathy. I think a young family with a young child who were scared to take them back to school wanted to see an empathetic president and an empathetic Republican Party. I think that and I said this multiple times, he chose a different path. I don’t think he was wrong with this, I love him, but we had a difference on this. I thought we should have public empathy. I think people are scared. I walked around people and watched them walk around me, not like two years ago because I’m Brad Parscale but walk around me because I have a mask on, and they don’t want COVID. I can see waitresses standing a little farther from the table. People are scared. I think if he would have been publicly empathetic, he would have won by a landslide. He could have leaned into it instead of run away from it.”

Trump's lack of empathy for Covid victims cost him election: Parscale | Empathy Circle Magazine | Scoop.it
Donald Trump lost the election because he failed to demonstrate "empathy" towards the public during the coronavirus pandemic, his former campaign manager Brad Parscale has said.

Speaking to Fox News on Tuesday, Parscale said that voters in suburban areas abandoned Trump because he prioritised re-opening the US economy instead of demonstrating empathy as he downplayed the severity of the virus.

"I thought we should have public empathy. I think people were scared," Parscale told Fox News on Tuesday.

Letters to the editor: President-elect Joe Biden’s gift to America is the gift of empathy

Letters to the editor: President-elect Joe Biden’s gift to America is the gift of empathy | Empathy Circle Magazine | Scoop.it

EDITOR: President-elect Joe Biden’s gift to America is the gift of empathy, one of the core elements of a democratic society.  Without this ability to take on the perspectives and feelings of others plus the ability to read, reason, and reflect, we lack the foundations of a democracy.  

 

As President,  Biden will help us restore the capacity to communicate and to feel with another, thus opening the possibilities of understanding who “the other” is and solving problems with them.  When we cannot comprehend the thoughts and feelings of someone different, we leave ourselves in ignorance and fear that leads to intolerance and possible violence.

“Generational shifts have brought more empathy to the fore,” she says. Different expectations from Millennials, multicultural workforces, and mergers bringing workplaces together have pushed empathy to the forefront of what’s desired in a leader

The Light and Dark Side of Empathy

The Light and Dark Side of Empathy | Empathy Circle Magazine | Scoop.it
We are asked regularly what we think about, and how we deal with, the ‘dark side of empathy’. An important question because empathy is not all about being good. It shouldn’t be confused with kindness or with sympathy.

Empathy is neutral. It can be used for good, or to hurt or manipulate. By understanding someone deeply, you could use that understanding to achieve many different outcomes — not all of them in the best interests of the other person you empathize with.

For this reason, a dose of empathy is as good as the motivations or intentions of the empathizer.

Motivational Interviewing

Motivational Interviewing | Empathy Circle Magazine | Scoop.it
Accurate Empathy – Cognitive Phenomenon or a State of Being?
The core of MI is based on Carl Roger’s style and person-centered approach of reflective dialogue. “Reflective listening is a wonderfully useful skill, called accurate empathy by Rogers (1965) and ‘active listening’ by his student Thomas Gordon” (Gordon, 1970; Gordon and Edwards 1997). However, accurate empathy and active listening are two completely different contexts thereby producing different dynamics.

 

Carl Rogers was looking at accurate empathy as an internal process, of being in the flow with someone on an intuitive level.  His student, Gordon, is interpreting the meaning through a narrower focus, which reduces active listening to an external, strictly cognitive process. According to Rogers though, he describes his style as more of a “way of being” that promotes positive change.

Compassion and Empathy During Unexpected Situations

Compassion and Empathy During Unexpected Situations | Empathy Circle Magazine | Scoop.it

As ICUs and emergency departments struggled to provide care for their patients and communicate with family members during the initial months of the COVID-19 outbreak, Silvia Protto Perez, medical director of the End of Life Center at the Cleveland Clinic had to train her staff how to manage patient and family needs and how to use existing technology to drive connection and communication while satisfying clinical needs and following evolving federal and state guidelines.

 

During this session, Michael Hebb, Activist, Author, and Entrepreneur, will sit down with Silvia to talk about how the human connection has changed from the COVID and what caregivers can do given the status of the pandemic.

Key takeaways:

  • Using technology to try and bring family and patients together.
  • How to balance the needs of patients, medical staff, and adhere to strict guidelines.
  • Train staff to listen to family and patient needs and remain as flexible as possible.

Compassion is Not Kumbaya!

Compassion is Not Kumbaya! | Empathy Circle Magazine | Scoop.it
It’s easy to think of compassion as being nice or not hurting anyone’s feelings, when in fact, it’s not at all about political correctness and niceties. Compassion requires courage to look at the uncomfortable truth and take actions to alleviate suffering. But it also involves humility that comes from understanding that we’re all human and we’re all shaped by the circumstances we find ourselves in, many of which were not of our choosing.

Would I have voted for Trump if I had stayed in Kuwait, surrounded by the same friends and family who espouse his values? Who knows? This is only to say that in a not-so-far-off parallel universe, I could have been the very person I am now questioning. We’ve probably all heard this, but it’s more relevant now than ever before: “Don’t judge someone until you have walked a mile in their shoes.”

Dear friends,

A few weeks ago, I wrote about the U.S. election being a Referendum on Empathy. This week's blog explores Empathy's Role in Reconciliation. My latest Youtube video is also devoted to Bridge-building through Empathy, featuring Ron McCLelland, a pastor and spiritual director. I hope you take a few minutes to consider the overarching message in both.

There’s much more to explore in this month’s newsletter. Enjoy!

Lead with compassion - Listen with empathy

Lead with compassion - Listen with empathy | Empathy Circle Magazine | Scoop.it

What is empathy?

When engaged with listening actively it is important to summarize, paraphrase, ask open ended questions and empathize. Most people do not listen effectively. A natural tendency is to provide solutions and share knowledge. It takes conscious thought to not provide solutions and share known information. A better approach when listening is to ask questions that lead the other party towards a solution found on their own part.  You have to calm the desire to share, be interesting, and demonstrate our own expertise.  

When you are with a friend and they have had something negative happen in their lives, you tend to be empathetic.

How empathy works - and sympathy can't

We can often get confused when we're trying to help somebody out of a tight spot... and can end up getting involved in a rescue attempt out of pity. Empathy allows us to help without diminishing the other person... in fact empathic responses from us help the other person to build self-sufficiency and confidence as they get to grips with their situation and options.

This isn't the first time Gates has recommended reading as a way for the comfortable to step outside their own privilege and look at the world through the eyes of those who are struggling. He previously praised Evicted by Princeton sociologist Matthew Desmond for much the same reason. 

Science backs Gates up that reading about those with lives very different than your own is a great way to exercise your empathy muscles.Studies also confirm that boosting empathy will make you a better leader.

As we enter the holiday season, one thing is clear, things will be different. While it may be possible to seek gratitude in aspects of pandemic impacts (simplification, more time with immediate family), there are SO MANY challenges and things that are hard. Families are not able to travel to visit. Illness is pervasive. Jobs have been lost. Many have lost loved ones. Systemic disparity means that not everyone experiences pandemic impacts equally. Fear and anxiety abound. We mourn the loss of holiday traditions.

With more people operating remotely than ever before, and teams adapting with a mix of office and home-based workers, working with empathy has never been more important.

 

The experiences of each of your employees will differ, as everyone has been impacted, and will feel and think differently about the global pandemic. Not only does demonstrating empathy remotely require everyone to recognise and understand this, but it is also much more difficult to do so when communicating virtually.

Empathy in Action – exercising the heart

Empathy in Action – exercising the heart | Empathy Circle Magazine | Scoop.it
Empathy and connection is so needed in our world right now. I’ve been talking to some people in West Virginia and moved by the heroic efforts of some to combat poverty in a state with the worst health, worst education levels and worst employment.

It’s one place of many in the world where daily struggles for basics like food are the norm.

When we hear so much of this it’s easy to become overwhelmed and feel powerless to help. Yet, we can develop social empathy. Social empathy is understanding and connecting with life situations that result from structural inequalities and disparities.

However, empathy is not taught in mainstream. So before we can have social empathy we need to have self-empathy.
