(Empathic Family) Using Empathy to Connect with Your Kids

(Empathic Family) Using Empathy to Connect with Your Kids | Empathy | 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:

Empathic Listening: How It Applies To Marriage - Our Peaceful Family

Empathic Listening: How It Applies To Marriage - Our Peaceful Family | Empathy | Scoop.it
Empathic listening can improve your communication in many ways. Learn what empathic listening is, and how to listen with empathy in life, and your marriage.


Do you apply empathic listening in your marriage? We have touched on paying attention to your spouse before, and this week’s post is about empathic listening.


Have you caught yourself listening to someone (your husband/ wife) with your immediate intent being to reply, with or without empathy? I bet you have. We are also guilty of doing this.


Over the years, we have learned to solely devote our attention to listening until the end of a statement before thinking about responding. And when we respond, we want to do it with empathy.

Empathy ...Clearing Up Misconceptions ...The good and bad of Empathy

Empathy  ...Clearing Up  Misconceptions ...The good and bad of Empathy | Empathy | Scoop.it

Seminal studies by Daniel Batson and Nancy Eisenberg have shown that people higher in empathy are more likely to help others in need, even when doing so cuts against their self-interest.

Empathy reduces prejudice and racism:
Empathy is good for your marriage:
Empathy reduces bullying:
Empathy promotes heroic acts:
Empathy fights inequality.
Empathy is good for the office:
Empathy is good for health care:


For more: Consider the dark sides to empathy: Some argue that sociopaths can use empathy to help them exploit or even torture people, and caregivers risk feeling emotionally overwhelmed if they can’t regulate their empathy.

The Neuroscience of Empathizing With Another Person's Pain

The Neuroscience of Empathizing With Another Person's Pain | Empathy | Scoop.it
Perceiving and Empathizing With Others' Pain Is a Cognitive Process 

This week, a groundbreaking study was published which found that the ability to empathize with another person’s pain is rooted in cognitive neural processes that differ from the sensory processes used to perceive and experience one's own pain.

 

The June 2016 study, “Somatic and Vicarious Pain are Represented by Dissociable Multivariate Brain Patterns," by researchers at University of Colorado, Boulder, was published in the journal eLife.

 

Previous research on empathy has suggested that the same brain regions which allow someone to feel pain in his or her own body activate brain responses necessary to vicariously experience the pain of others. However, the latest research shows that empathizing with another person’s pain involves different neural circuitry than experiencing pain oneself. ...

 

"The research suggests that empathy is a deliberative process that requires taking another person's perspective rather than being an instinctive, automatic process," Tor Wager, senior author of the study and director of the Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience Laboratory at CU-Boulder said in a statement.

Is Empathy Dead? How Your Lack Of Empathy Damages Your Reputation And Impact As A Leader - Forbes

Is Empathy Dead? How Your Lack Of Empathy Damages Your Reputation And Impact As A Leader - Forbes | Empathy | Scoop.it
Ever since I studied renowned humanist psychologist Carl Rogers’ groundbreaking work on empathy during my Master’s degree program in Marriage and Family Therapy, I was deeply struck by the power of empathy to improve lives, build meaningful connections, and develop leaders.

 

In my executive coaching work too, I see that empathy is something that we humans today vaguely understand is important, but very few of us have been trained or taught how to cultivate empathy in our lives and work as a daily practice.

Growing Empathy: A Daily 30-Minute Gift That Can Rescue Your Relationship

Growing Empathy: A Daily 30-Minute Gift That Can Rescue Your Relationship | Empathy | Scoop.it

The amazing work of neuroscientists such as Marco Iacoboni reveals human beings are neurologically “wired for empathy” and — an innate moral nature. The same brain circuits are mobilized whether feeling one’s own pain and others’, and merely observing someone performing a certain action activates the same areas of the brain in the observer.


The special neurons that make this possible are known as “mirror neurons” are linked with the experience of empathy, compassion and learning.


Not surprisingly, the ability to remain empathically connected, especially in challenging moments when you are triggered, is a key attribute of partners in strong, healthy marriages.

The Power of Empathy in Romantic Relationships & How to Enhance It | Empathy | Scoop.it

Empathy is truly the heart of the relationship,”
said Carin Goldstein, a licensed marriage and family therapist.


“Without it, the relationship will struggle to survive.” That’s because empathy requires compassion. And, without compassion, couples can’t develop a bond. 


============================


“Empathy bridges the divide between being
separate individuals with different backgrounds,
feelings and perspectives.”

3 Ways to Build Empathy and Improve Communication in Your Marriage

3 Ways to Build Empathy and Improve Communication in Your Marriage | Empathy | Scoop.it

Marriage is hard. The difficulty primarily stems from the frustrating fact that men are from Mars and women are from Venus and, according to my five-year-old who is currently learning about the solar system, “Those planets are really, really different.”

It’s not news to any couples who have made a commitment to share a life that it can be painful at times. If love is like a flame (as the artists and poets have told us), it has to be deliberately tended to like the Olympic torch, not left to burn out like a 10-cent votive from IKEA. In my seven years of marriage, I’ve discovered that this kind of attentiveness is expressed most clearly through empathy. Taking the time and energy to put myself in my husband’s place—and check out the view from Mars—is the only way to avoid near planetary collision.

Is the introspection of self-help and therapy hurting our ability to empathise?

Over the past century, self-help and therapy culture have emphasised constantly looking inward as a means of self-discovery and self-improvement. But are we really any better off for it? The UK-based author and philosopher Roman Krznaric believes that, for humanity to have a more empathetic, moral, creative and progressive 21st century, we must step outside of our own experiences to see how other people live.

Empathy In Leadership: Its Place In The Workplace

Empathy In Leadership: Its Place In The Workplace | Empathy | Scoop.it
By SHAHRAN MASOOD,

 

John C. Maxwell once said, “People don’t care what you know until they know that you care.”

 

However, in this modern day and age where everything revolves around "me-ism", is there a place left for empathy in leadership?

 

Below are the seven benefits of empathy in organisations:

Empathy helps to create a positive organisational culture based on openness and understanding.Understanding the intentions, feelings and thoughts of others help leaders become more in tuned with their team’s successes and failures.Creates authentic connection between people.Allows for true feedback and fuels objective decision-making.Without an emphatic leader, employees internalise their problems and then externalise them in inappropriate ways.Helps create an atmosphere of cooperation in any environment.Emphatic leaders are motivated to make more decisions that reflect the common good.

When Empathy And Sympathy Are Confused 

When Empathy And Sympathy Are Confused  | Empathy | Scoop.it
Bloom assumes the reason we empathize is to make ourselves feel better. I disagree. (I don’t know what evidence Bloom has of this. He references Peter Singer’s The Most Good You Can Do and warm-glow giving, but I am also unable to find evidence there).

 

The value empathy provides is a medium to solve the problems of others. By leaving our own epistemic vantage point we can identify and solve the real problems that would have otherwise gone unnoticed. Furthermore, empathy allows us to apply one of our most valuable resource in improving society: our knowledge.

 

Empathy helps solve some of the worlds toughest problems that affect a large demographic all while creating solutions that actually fit in the narrative of users lives. Is this not the core of effective altruism ?

Teacher empathy reduces student suspensions, Stanford research shows | Stanford News Press Release | Empathy | Scoop.it
When teachers think empathically, and not punitively, about misbehaving students, they cultivate better relationships and help reduce discipline problems, Stanford research shows.

 

The findings showed that giving teachers an opportunity to express their empathic values – to understand students’ perspectives and to sustain positive relationships with students when they misbehave – improved student-teacher relationships and discipline outcomes.
