Back to Sanity: The Power of Empathy; Healing Conflict through Connection

Back to Sanity: The Power of Empathy; Healing Conflict through Connection | Empathy Circle Magazine | Scoop.it

For me, this highlights the enormous significance of empathy. To a large extent, all human brutality — all oppression, cruelty and most crime — is the result of a lack of empathy.


It's a lack of empathy which makes someone capable of attacking, robbing, raping or oppressing another human being. It's a lack of empathy for another tribe or country which makes warfare and conflict possible. It's a lack of empathy towards other ethnic groups, social classes or castes what makes oppression and inequality possible.

Empathy Vs. Sympathy  

Empathy Vs. Sympathy   | Empathy Circle Magazine | Scoop.it
  • Empathy fuels connection.
  • Sympathy drives disconnection.
  • Four qualities of empathy
  • - 1 Prospective taking
  • - 2 Staying out of judgement
  • - 3 Recognizing emotion in other people
  • - 4 Communicating that emotion
  • Empathy is feeling with people.
  • Empathy is a vulnerable choice.
  • In order to connect with you, I have to connect with something in myself that knows that feeling.
  • Rarely if ever does an empathic response begin with “at least.”
  • Rarely can a response make something better, what makes something better is connection.

Developing Empathy in Early Childhood

Developing Empathy in Early Childhood | Empathy Circle Magazine | Scoop.it
Empathy, or the ability to understand and respect another person’s perspective, is the foundation of all human interaction. As your preschooler grows, she is beginning to recognize what others are feeling, and you can help teach your child about empathy and its importance even at this young age.

 

Observation is a key feature of empathy, and children in preschool are beginning to read the gestures, facial expressions, and actions of others to figure out what they are feeling. You can build your child’s observation skills by pointing out when you see someone behaving kindly, or poorly, as this will help show her how actions are related to empathy.

I'm a psychotherapist – here's what I've learned from listening to children talk about climate change | Empathy Circle Magazine | Scoop.it
What was also uncovered in these conversations was an enduring empathy for the creatures they share the world with. These children could recognise their own vulnerability in the face of climate change, but it didn’t eclipse their concern for the natural world. Instead, they expressed solidarity and empathy with other species. One said:

Climate change is like the bug spray of nature, and people are the bugs.

(Against Empathy) The Trouble with Empathy 

(Against Empathy) The Trouble with Empathy  | Empathy Circle Magazine | Scoop.it
As one of our most beloved companions at the museum, the library, and especially the theater, empathy is hard to shake. But a host of other scholars, scientists, authors, and journalists have also begun to think through its flaws and failures. While the liberatory potential of empathy cannot be denied, it can certainly be overstated, because, as research shows:

 

  • It’s voyeuristic: my empathy requires the exposure of your suffering.
  • It’s invasive: my empathy requires access to your private realm of feeling.
  • It’s appropriative: your feelings become mine.
    It’s narcissistic: my empathy is really just a loose projection of my own feelings onto yours.

How to teach little kids empathy 
Almost everyone is born with the capacity to develop empathy. Whether we do or not largely depends on the kind of experiences we have in early childhood.

Empathy is the ability to understand and be sensitive to other people’s feelings. The effort to teach it is part of a larger movement promoting “social-emotional learning,” which the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning, a research organization based in Chicago, defines as “the process through which children and adults understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions.”

The Empathy Gap and How You Can Close It

The Empathy Gap and How You Can Close It | Empathy Circle Magazine | Scoop.it
The 2019 SWES identified some key statistics when it comes to empathy:

82% of employees would consider leaving their job for a more empathetic organisation


78% of employees would work longer hours for a more empathetic employer


72% of CEOs say the state of empathy must evolve; this is a 15% increase from last year’s figures
Like any organisational change, an organisation will not be deemed empathic overnight. It is hereby essential to begin integrating empathy into your company culture in several ways. However, before you can decide when to implement, you need to decide what to implement and why.

How Do You Define Empathy?
Levitt: In my industry, "empathy" has become a buzzword. People are being told, “Step one, empathize or create empathy” mostly by creating a map of the customer’s step by step process. If you understood their process, you empathized. What is your definition of empathy?

Finkle: Empathy, for the most part, is the ability to understand someone else's experience and to experience their feelings — to some extent — firsthand. To empathize rather than to sympathize is to take on part of someone else’s experience and to resonate with it in some way.

Friends or foes: Is empathy necessary for moral behavior?

Friends or foes: Is empathy necessary for moral behavior? | Empathy Circle Magazine | Scoop.it
Abstract
The past decade has witnessed a flurry of empirical and theoretical research on morality and empathy, as well as increased interest and usage in the media and the public arena. At times, in both popular and academia, morality and empathy are used interchangeably, and quite often the latter is considered to play a foundational role for the former.

 

In this article, we argue that, while there is a relationship between morality and empathy, it is not as straightforward as apparent at first glance. Moreover, it is critical to distinguish between the different facets of empathy (emotional sharing, empathic concern, and perspective taking), as each uniquely influences moral cognition and predicts differential outcomes in moral behavior.

 

Empirical evidence and theories from evolutionary biology, developmental, behavioral, and affective and social neuroscience are comprehensively integrated in support of this argument. The wealth of findings illustrates a complex and equivocal relationship between morality and empathy. The key to understanding such relations is to be more precise on the concepts being used, and perhaps abandoning the muddy concept of empathy.

Your Relationship Requires Empathy—Here's How to Get It

Your Relationship Requires Empathy—Here's How to Get It | Empathy Circle Magazine | Scoop.it

One of the best tools we have as humans is the ability to feel empathy. 

Posted Sep 12, 2019

Understanding and Developing Empathy

One of the best tools we have as humans is the ability to feel empathy. The world would be a better place if we were all capable of finding that place within ourselves to help another person feel that they are not alone and that someone else understands what their soul is going through. The good news is that you don’t have to go to years of graduate school to learn how to do this.

Empathy is the ability to share and understand the feelings of another person. When that person is your other half, the importance of empathy cannot be overstated. Having empathic experiences and exchanges with the one you love is one of the most bonding things you can do.
