Conference: The Objects of Empathy: Perspectives from Ethics, Aesthetics and Neuroscience - Universität Stuttgart - July 27-29, 2016

Conference: The Objects of Empathy: Perspectives from Ethics, Aesthetics and Neuroscience - Universität Stuttgart - July 27-29, 2016 | Empathy Movement Magazine | Scoop.it

Interdisciplinary research into empathy has, up until now, focussed mainly on the role of empathy in mindreading and its importance for pro-social behaviour.

 

Empathy can, however, also be directed at a variety of different objects beyond other people, such as literature, music, nature, and artefacts.

  • What is the connection between these different forms of empathy?
  • Do they share a common psychological or neural base?

 

We suggest that an investigation into empathy that takes into account its different kinds of objects will allow us to better understand its nature and evaluate whether 'empathy' is a homogenous or heterogeneous concept. 


The aim of this conference is to bring together top researchers in the field of empathy from philosophy, psychology, and neuroscience and to look at empathy and its various kinds of objects in different contexts, e.g., in ethics and aesthetics.

 

By associating these strands of research which have, so far, not been properly connected, and by combining perspectives from neuroscience and psychology as well as the humanities we hope to make progress in developing a unified concept of empathy and in defining its central role in our interaction with the world and with other people.

Workshop: Practicing Empathy  

Workshop: Practicing Empathy   | Empathy Movement Magazine | Scoop.it
This workshop is all about empathy.

It's easy to fall into the trap of "fixing" rather than listening — or judging rather than empathizing — when people come to us with heavy emotions or problems.

When we miss opportunities for empathy, misunderstandings are common, people might feel unheard or invalidated, and often, feelings are hurt. This can strain relationships.

Empathy is an important skill for leadership, relationships, and mental wellness.

But what is empathy? And how do we get better at it?

Empathy is listening to understand, taking the perspective of another, staying out of judgment, and recognizing emotion in others & communicating that (thanks Brené Brown!).

And importantly, empathy is a skill that can be learned!

How do we learn it? Practice!

At Stanton House, we believe that empathy is one of the most important skills any great leader can develop. It is a powerful contributor to the employee experience; improving communication and productivity and increasing employee engagement and retention.

We believe it is important for every organisation to foster a culture of empathy and inclusion. In this paper, we share the details of our own internal initiative, The Stanton House Empathy Series. We hope that by doing so, business leaders, hiring managers and talent partners will gain some deeper insight and practical suggestions for developing empathy across their teams.

Jackie knows that organizations can foster more empathy through cultural transformation and systems change from within, not training from the outside. So they created a new leadership model in District 4 and launched internal Innovation Teams, as well as the first employee engagement survey in the 160-year history of the police department. Top of the list in responses was a desire for increased community engagement, removal of tedious and repetitive paperwork, and a focus on officer mental health.

The result of the culture shift: Use of force decreased, citizen complaints were down, and officer transfers increased back into District 4. Now, three of the five districts are using the program.

How Empathic People Can Set Effective, Loving Boundaries

How Empathic People Can Set Effective, Loving Boundaries | Empathy Movement Magazine | Scoop.it
You’re a highly empathic person. You fully and intently listen to others. You tend to focus on others’ emotions, often feeling them more so than your own. In fact, it’s like you feel someone else’s pain deep inside your bones.

It’s that visceral.

And you frequently find yourself utterly exhausted because tending to others comes more naturally to you than tending to yourself, according to Joy Malek, a marriage and family therapist who specializes in working with people who are intuitive, empathic, creative and highly sensitive.

This week, members of the University of Colorado School of Medicine Class of 2026 became new medical students, entering medicine at a critical and often tumultuous time.

“The current state of the world can be characterized by polarized beliefs, inequitable treatment, violence, and legitimate concerns about the state of our democracy,” said Brian Dwinnell, MD, FACP, associate dean of student life in the CU School of Medicine, Friday morning to the assembled Class of 2026. “Understanding the social and personal influences on an individual's health has never been more critical.

How To Fall Back in Love

  • Love alone is not enough to sustain a satisfying relationship.
  • Empathy is the crucial ability to understand your partner's thoughts and feelings.
  • Empathy is oxygen, essential to keep love alive and thriving.

 

When it comes to the survival of intimate relationships, no matter how much love there is between you and your partner, there’s no guarantee that you both will be able to make your love last—even if you think you’re "soulmates." In fact, without empathy, the love in your relationship will end up like "love" in tennis—one big zero.

The down side of empathy

The down side of empathy | Empathy Movement Magazine | Scoop.it
But there’s a down side to empathy that doesn’t get much attention.

If you empathize too much, it can exhaust you. Which is one reason people in helping professions such as psychotherapy, nursing, and social work often experience burn out. Over time, feeling what others are feeling can deplete you, eventually tapping you out and leading to negative emotions and even challenges to your mental health. Consistently high levels of empathizing with others can also lead to apathy if you do not set healthy boundaries.

Empathy can also lead to divisiveness, which sounds contradictory because it’s such an essential skill for building trusting relationships. But since empathy helps us connect to others’ suffering, it can be limiting because it causes us to strongly identify with particular people and groups. An article in Forbes about the dark side of empathy reports that,

Empathy Can Heal Ongoing Workplace Discrimination

How do we build a skill like empathy between colleagues from diverse backgrounds? What about colleagues who sit on opposing ends of the political spectrum or hold different religious beliefs? In order for our workplaces to heal and move forward, we need to teach the skills that allow empathy to flourish and connection to naturally progress.

Why is empathy worth cultivating in workplace culture? Empathy is fundamental to a foundational understanding of the requirements for others' success—customers and our colleagues alike.

Virtual reality boosts students' empathy for nature

Virtual reality boosts students' empathy for nature | Empathy Movement Magazine | Scoop.it
But your experience does not end when the headset comes off. From a sensory perspective, the dangers you faced while embodying a turtle threatened you. As a result, you increased your empathy for loggerheads, your understanding of environmental threats and your motivation to protect the species and its habitat, according to a study published in Scientific Reports.

“Plenty of people are moved to tears after experiencing a [VR] boat strike or having to abandon their clutch of eggs,” Daniel Pimentel, one of the study’s co-authors, said in an email sent from a research vessel in the Pacific Ocean. He explained that it is easier for humans to empathize with a single victim rather than a group. “When it’s many, we are less capable of inferring the group’s emotional state, and we can identify less with the collective suffering, which can lead to desensitization.”

Empathy is not a nice to have anymore, it’s now a must. Understand your team members, to enable them to be their best, be more fulfilled, to collaborate better with others. You will find that your team is more invested in the company’s success and in helping other team members because they feel they matter. Not only will it improve efficiency, but it will also improve talent retention, which as we know can be terribly costly and disruptive for any business.

According to Forbes, 76% of millennial employees will leave a company if they don’t feel appreciated, that’s a staggeringly high rate and I can imagine a similar figure will be true for Gen Z employees.

Self-perceived empathic abilities of people with autism towards living beings mostly differs for humans | Scientific Reports

Self-perceived empathic abilities of people with autism towards living beings mostly differs for humans | Scientific Reports | Empathy Movement Magazine | Scoop.it

Despite various definitions and several different mental states related to this notion, empathy generally refers to our capability to connect with one another at an emotional level1,2. Our empathic faculties enable us to recognize, understand, and share the thoughts, feelings, and emotions of another. Considered as prosociality drivers, they facilitate coordination and cooperation with our fellows humans.

 

Our empathy can also be at work outside a strictly human relational frame since we are able to form bonds and emotionally interact with other species. In a recent study, we highlighted the evolutionary component in our empathic preferences toward other living species (i.e., ease to understand their emotions), by putting into evidence their very significant correlation with the phylogenetic proximity with us.

 

As no cultural factor (e.g., diet, ethics, beliefs, knowledge) was able to explain this phenomenon, the Anthropomorphic stimuli hypothesis was formalized to account for the sharp correlation observed: in all likelihood, the closer another organism is phylogenetically to us, the more it shares with us inherited morphological and behavioral traits (synapomorphies), and the easier it is to perceive it as an alter ego and—really or supposedly—to understand its emotions.

Cognitive vs. emotional empathy: It’s all in your perspective

Cognitive vs. emotional empathy: It’s all in your perspective | Empathy Movement Magazine | Scoop.it

Defining empathy
There are three types of empathy — cognitive, emotional and compassionate — yet they don’t look and feel the same.


Cognitive empathy is what we know about how the other person is feeling, acting and thinking. This is used often in interacting with others, negotiating, and considering differing points of view (perspectives), as well as in motivating others. We can learn what typically motivates APPs, for example, in creating structures for recruitment and retention.

 

We can learn how patients typically respond to a new diagnosis of cancer to create patient and family education materials. We can learn how different disciplines in the interprofessional team interact with each other to establish team dynamics and rules for engagement. Patients, families and our colleagues all have their own cognitive responses to situations — ie, what they know, how they react and what they are thinking.

Emotional empathy is responding to the “feelings” the other person is experiencing. Acknowledging their feelings is helpful to validate that you are listening and responding to them in that moment.
