The Science Behind Empathy And Empaths

The Science Behind Empathy And Empaths | Empathy Circle Magazine | Scoop.it
As a psychiatrist and an empath, I am fascinated by how the phenomenon of empathy works. I feel passionately that empathy is the medicine the world needs right now.

Empathy is when we reach our hearts out to others and put ourselves in their shoes. However, being an empath goes even farther. Like many of my patients and myself, empaths are people who’re high on the empathic spectrum and actually feel what is happening in others in their own bodies. As a result, empaths can have incredible compassion for people–but they often get exhausted from feeling “too much” unless they develop strategies to safeguard their sensitivities and develop healthy boundaries.

In my book, “The Empath’s Survival Guide” I discuss the following intriguing scientific explanations of empathy and empaths. These will help us more deeply understand the power of empathy so we can utilize and honor it in our lives.

Empathy is Not a Soft Skill 

Empathy is Not a Soft Skill  | Empathy Circle Magazine | Scoop.it
The word “empathy” communicates a kind of softness that belies its true nature. First and foremost, it is considered a “soft skill.” Its very designation in such a list of skills defined by their subordination to skills that matter most suggests that empathy is important for missionaries and social workers but not people in roles governed by science (doctors), or money (financial analysts), or who lead (corporate CEOs).

 

A conversation with my dad, who is a retired Marine and Vietnam veteran, perfectly illustrated this misconception: “Give me a nurse with empathy to change the bandage, but I will forego the empathy for the skill in my heart surgeon.”

Empathy Can Be Taught, and Patients Teach it Best

Empathy Can Be Taught, and Patients Teach it Best | Empathy Circle Magazine | Scoop.it
Empathy toward patients is an essential skill for a physician to deliver the best care for any patient. Empathy also protects the physician from moral injury and decreases the chances for malpractice litigations. The current graduate medical education curriculum allows trainees to graduate without getting focused training to develop empathy as a core competency domain. The tools to measure empathy inherently lack validity. The accurate measure of the provider’s empathy comes from the patient’s perspectives of their experience and their feedback, which is rarely reaching the trainee.

 

The hidden curriculum in residency programs gives mixed messages to trainees due to inadequate role modeling by attending physicians. This narrative style manuscript portrays a teachable moment at the bedside vividly. The teaching team together reflected upon the lack of empathy, took steps to resolve the issue.

 

The attending demonstrated role modeling as an authentic and impactful technique to teach empathy. The conclusion includes a proposal to include the patient’s real-time feedback to trainees as an essential domain under Graduate Medical Education core competencies of professionalism and patient care.

Empathy in the education sector – how institutions can deliver empathic experiences

Empathy in the education sector – how institutions can deliver empathic experiences | Empathy Circle Magazine | Scoop.it
As the current challenges for education institutions look set to continue into the new year, it’s essential that they look at how they engage with their students and other customers, be they prospects or parents. Implementing cloud-based tools and analytics can help to quickly implement more personalised experiences to deliver more empathetic engagements, across the channels their users prefer.

The education sector has already demonstrated how quickly it’s able to adapt to challenging circumstances and switch to a digital first model. Those who will be the most successful moving forward will be those that can take this even further – using technology as a tool to bridge the gap between institutions and their customers.

Does "Digital Empathy" Work in Virtual Psychotherapy?

Does "Digital Empathy" Work in Virtual Psychotherapy? | Empathy Circle Magazine | Scoop.it

#EmpathyCircles: The best #Empathy building practice.  http://www.EmpathyCircle.com

 #EmpathyTraining:  https://j.mp/ECCOURSE

 

Digital empathy is “traditional empathic characteristics such as concern and caring for others expressed through computer-mediated interactions."

A recent study suggests that clients felt their psychotherapist was more empathic and supportive in a remote setting than an in-person setting.

Another study found that virtual group therapy can be as effective as in-person group therapy.

Since the COVID-19 pandemic, much of psychotherapy has moved online. Two new studies take a look at whether teletherapy and video conference therapy are helpful. Can empathy connect clients with their therapists despite the virtual divide? Has psychotherapy adapted to moving online? The results may be surprising for some.

 

In one study, published in Frontiers in Psychology, researchers found that clients felt like their psychotherapist was significantly more empathic and supportive in the remote setting compared to in person. This is important because, depending on the type of psychotherapy, whether a client feels connected to the psychotherapist can be an essential factor in a positive outcome in treatment.

Empathy is the capacity to imagine the experience of another from their point of view, not yours. When I was a child, my mother told me to put on a wool sweater if she was cold. She was an empathic soul, but pure empathy requires self negations. I still overheat, sweat very quickly, and I can’t wear wool! The smallest molecule of society is the family. Parents are the first leaders we encounter. If we have a trusting, supportive, loving, empathic relationship with our parents, we are more likely to accept authority and leadership when we become an adult.

SATYA NADELLA: Empathy. To me, what I’ve type of come to appreciate, what’s the most innate in all of us is that means to have the ability to put ourselves in different individuals’s footwear and see the world the way in which they see it. That’s empathy. That’s on the coronary heart of design considering. Once we say innovation is all approximately assembly unmet, unarticulated, wants of {the marketplace}, it’s in the end the unmet and articulated wants of individuals, and organizations which are made up of individuals. And it’s good to have deep empathy.
So I might say the supply of all innovation is what’s the most humane high quality that all of us have, which is empathy.

Empathy Can Help Us Overcome Fear of Others

Empathy Can Help Us Overcome Fear of Others | Empathy Circle Magazine | Scoop.it
  • Fear of others who are different blocks empathy for them, but learning to understand others can help people overcome that fear.
  • Empathy frees people from the bias of fear that blocks empathy, and in turn opens them to deeper understanding.
  • Social empathy uses the knowledge of the history and social conditions of other groups to diminish a person's fear of others.

Empathy is a complex process that includes both unconscious feelings and cognitive processing to feel and understand the emotions and experiences of others, or as we commonly say, “walk in someone else’s shoes.”

 

It is not sympathy, pity, or even compassion; it is neutral. However, what we do with our empathic feelings is not neutral. Research shows that when we have empathic feelings, we engage in prosocial behaviors, typically viewed as helping others.1 That is why we think of empathy in such positive ways—empathy can lead us to do good. But what about when others seem different and strange to us?

Opinion | This empathy exercise might help you bridge some divides - The

Tips for understanding people whose life experiences differ from our own.

 

 That’s because I don’t need to experience suicidal thoughts or feelings myself to recognize how disturbing, and dangerous, they are to my patients. Psychiatric training teaches that empathy — the ability to imagine the mind of others — is critical to being an effective therapist. Empathy is really theory of mind in action: It allows us to understand people whose life experiences are very different from our own, which is probably most of our patients, and most people out in the world.

 

Here’s an exercise that might boost your empathy: Listen carefully to someone you want to communicate with better, and choose something they said or did that you don’t like or agree with. Now imagine at least two reasons why they might have said or done that thing.

Empathy in pedophilia and sexual offending against children: A multifaceted approach

Empathy in pedophilia and sexual offending against children: A multifaceted approach | Empathy Circle Magazine | Scoop.it
Empathy is regarded as dynamic risk factor of child sexual offending. However, empathy research in the context of child sexual abuse suffers from various problems. First, prior studies failed to differentiate between pedophilic and nonpedophilic sexual offenders. Second, there is no distinction made between cognitive and affective empathy. Third, cognitive and affective empathy toward emotional states of specific age groups (children and adults) has not been adequately addressed. The current study tackles these shortcomings investigating offending and nonoffending pedophiles and multiple aspects of empathy using self-reports and objective behavioral measures.

Empathy Activities for Kids & Parents: Turn Playtime Into Learning About Kindness & Empathy 

Empathy Activities for Kids & Parents: Turn Playtime Into Learning About Kindness & Empathy  | Empathy Circle Magazine | Scoop.it
  1. Read Books: Great books are an incredible way to step outside our own experience and have compassion for others. Then, turn the books into games!

  2. Play "Emotion I Spy": Helping kids name and identify feelings is a powerful gateway into feeling for others. The idea is that you simply sit on a park bench and observe people’s emotions like you would in "I Spy" and the guess who you are observing. This will help your child process their own feelings and also strengthens their empathetic muscles.

  3. Theater Games: Play theater games like Emotion Charades, Emotion Freeze Dance, Emotion Sculpture. Learn how to play these games.

  4. Practice Perspective Taking: Play "A Day in the Life," a game where you go deep into a character so much that you imagine the nuances of their day, dreams, family, etc.

Why You Need Self Empathy

Why You Need Self Empathy | Empathy Circle Magazine | Scoop.it
There is a substantial body of research and practice that shows the importance of empathy in making a change in others. Whether supporting a friend through a change, leading a change in your organization, creating an innovative approach to solve a problem, or facilitating a change in your community, the capacity to put yourself in another’s proverbial shoes empowers you to appeal to others and address their needs in a way that is the difference between engagement and compliance.

 

But what about when we want to be the change? What about when we have a significant change we want to make in ourselves?

When Empathy Strikes | Kristin Moody | TEDxAtlanta

Kristin Moody believes in the potential of empathy to address the divisiveness that is threatening the fabric of our social, political and economic well-being. In this engaging talk, Kristin highlights what happens when we empathize and the benefits that extend beyond building social connections with others.

 

Kristin Moody’s work is inspired by the biological instinct humans have to empathize with one another and the potential empathy has to address the divisiveness that is threatening the fabric of our social, political and economic well-being. She first learned about the power of empathy as a high school teacher, where she saw the impact relationship-building made on student and teacher outcomes. Kristin went on to formally study empathy and integrate that understanding into support for individuals and organizations seeking improved culture, equity, and access to authenticity.

She now teaches, researches, and explores empathy frameworks to help diverse people connect in ways that promote, celebrate, and leverage authentic diversity.

Building Empathy Maps
Empathy maps are a visual tool used by design teams that put users first (human-centered design approach). An empathy map has four quadrants, which account for what the customer says, thinks, does, and feels. When filling in this map, the team takes time to understand users and empathize with them.

Usually, team members explore empathy maps at the beginning of the design process, after the research has been conducted. After filling in the empathy map, the team experiences customers’ struggles firsthand, causing them to form a stronger connection with users.

Customer Journey Mapping

Customer journey mapping is another design tool that allows teams to gain empathy by understanding a user’s behavior during all stages of their journey. The maps can be retrospective (showing the current user behavior) or prospective (showing the expected user behavior). This type of mapping reveals how users experience the product, which jobs they can get done with it, and which pain points they experience.

#EmpathyCircles: The best #Empathy building practice.  http://www.EmpathyCircle.com

#EmpathyTraining:  https://j.mp/ECCOURSE

 

Afghanistan may be a different conflict, but it reveals a similar lack of empathy in the West’s strategy and foreign policy. Although this absence has been noted before, the cost is now apparent. It is counted not only in the lives lost and resources expended, but also in the damage done to the West’s reputation as a global actor, its longer-term capacity to act, and trust in the promises we make.

Empathy is often overlooked in foreign policy because it is considered naïve or at odds with the hard realities of politics. Yet the ability to view the world from the perspectives of others, and communicate that insight, is critical. Such an approach recognises the importance of emotions, of the meaning given to ideas, identities, and history, and the stories people tell themselves.

Empathy alone may not cure our country's ills and divisions, but abandoning it could deepen them.

 

During fractious times, empathy can seem as effective as bringing cotton candy to a gunfight. When the other side is viewed as an existential threat, meeting opponents halfway can feel dangerous — equivalent to betraying one’s side and giving up your ideals.

 

Still, empathy should have a place in our national discourse.

That lack of empathy is not only driving wedges between citizens; it’s building walls between our employees. Perhaps some of you witnessed that animus between employees over political candidates during the last election; I know I did.

 

That kind of division is something our companies can’t afford, particularly at a time when we face so many other challenges—the ongoing pain of the pandemic, the global recession, the need to transform digitally, and quickly, lest we become the latest victim of disruption. We need unity within our corporate communities, not only to cope with the challenges we can see, but to anticipate the dangers that have yet to reveal themselves.
