Children Are Wired For Empathy And Insisting On Apologies Is Not Nescessary

Children Are Wired For Empathy And Insisting On Apologies Is Not Nescessary | Teaching Empathy | Scoop.it
Teaching Children To Say Sorry Without Insisting On Apologies

It might be tempting to insist our child apologize whenever they make a mistake, like hurting a friend or breaking something. Especially if you are feeling like it is socially expected.  But insisting on a rushed apology, just for the sake of appeasing other parents can highlight in your child feelings of shame and discouragement.

Children are wired for empathy, and insisting on apologies is neither necessary, nor helpful for children to learn to recognize and utilize that feeling well.When it comes to teaching children how to apologize and making amends, guidance and patience are more valuable.

Program Overview

Program Overview | Teaching Empathy | Scoop.it

Why Compassion Education?
          We all face difficult situations, challenging relationships, and internal thoughts and beliefs that prevent us from experiencing the best life has to offer. When we become more aware, open, and curious about the world and people around us, we learn to use our natural compassion in practical ways to navigate life’s toughest personal challenges and begin to move through life’s ups and downs with greater confidence and ease.  Be a part of making the world a better place.

 
Practicing compassion can alleviate our worries and fears so we can become powerful forces for good — in our relationships, families, workplaces, and communities.

Active listening - everyone has a natural need to be heard

Active listening - everyone has a natural need to be heard | Teaching Empathy | Scoop.it
Active listening – everyone has a natural need to be heard. This need we have coded from the beginning of our civilization when people gathered around the fire and listened to the stories of gods, old stories, battles, hunts and what they experienced. This is how storytelling was born. However, there is a huge difference between just listening to someone and listening to the person in depth. And this is active listening.

Nowadays, our employees often have a problem with being heard. And yet this need has not expired in us. Therefore, you can often meet with opinions and regrets about not being heard, about the fact that leaders are often absent during the conversation.

6 Ways to Practice Empathy in Your Daily Life

6 Ways to Practice Empathy in Your Daily Life | Teaching Empathy | Scoop.it
Why become more empathetic?  
Besides the fact that harnessing greater empathy has very real benefits for those around us, its effects stretch much further than our immediate circle.  Empathy has been shown to improve relationships, boost performance in the workplace, and even benefit the environment at large.  What’s more, it’s actually good for us.  Endless research has demonstrated that we are essentially social creatures who have naturally evolved to care for one another.  In fact, you could say that in not being empathetic, we go against our very human nature.

The good news is empathy comes naturally to all of us, which means that all we normally need is a gentle nudge in the right direction.  We’ve pulled together some of our own personal tips on how to be empathetic in your everyday life:

6 Tips for Building Empathy

6 Tips for Building Empathy | Teaching Empathy | Scoop.it
Design thinking and empathy go hand in hand. Empathizing with customers is the only way to understand their needs and challenges, and devise ways for your products, services and projects to address them. In other words, empathy is great fodder for innovation.

Sound simple enough? In theory, it should be. But figuring out how to empathize with customers doesn’t come naturally to every team. Interacting with customers in their own environment can be uncomfortable and time-consuming. It might mean embracing skills you don’t often use.

Here are some techniques that can help you get the most from your efforts to engage:

Empath Support Group 

Empath Support Group  | Teaching Empathy | Scoop.it
Are you an empath?

Empaths can sense subtle energy and actually absorb it from other people and different environments into our own bodies.

This capacity allows us to experience the energy around us, including emotions and physical sensations, in extremely deep ways. And so we energetically internalize the feelings and pain of others — and often have trouble distinguishing someone else’s discomfort from our own. Also, some empaths have profound spiritual and intuitive experiences — with animals, nature, or their inner guides.

Hello! I'm John Kinyon. My work is about how empathic communication is part of the global health and wellness movement, including our interrelatedness with the health of life's ecosystems. Empathy and mindfulness in conversation is about a deep integration of dimensions of mindfulness — awareness, presence, consciousness — with language that returns and deepens us into empathic connection and compassionate giving.

Mindful Empathy for Life and Work

Mindful Empathy for Life and Work | Teaching Empathy | Scoop.it
Creating and sustaining productive, trusting relationships is key to success in life and work. This workshop will boost your capacity to cultivate positive relationships through mindful empathy. Mindfulness is the skill of becoming more fully present in each moment. Empathy is the skill of understanding the emotions, circumstances, thoughts, intentions, and needs of people around you.

 

The practice of mindful empathy fosters effective collaboration, authentic communication, and interpersonally astute decision-making. It is crucial for any relationship or leadership role where trust and communication strongly determine productivity and satisfaction. This workshop will help you develop mindful empathy through experiential practices. It begins with mindfulness exercises to become grounded, calm, and aware of your own thoughts, emotions, and sensations.

 

A self-empathy activity will help students develop clarity around their own needs and goals. Following these, we will dive into practices for building empathy and compassion for others. Finally, we will look at negotiation and co-creation to meet each other’s needs while remaining centered and authentic to ourselves. Students will leave with a set of practices that can be incorporated in daily life. These new skills will empower you to manage yourself and engage with others more fully. Making others feel understood can inspire them to respond with enthusiasm, promoting a virtuous cycle of reciprocity.

Lots of people are talking about empathy these days, and it’s not hard to see why.


Empathy is a key part of being a responsible and helpful community member at school and elsewhere. For example, young people who show empathy are less likely to bully. Empathy can also be a route to academic and career success, because it helps people understand and work with others. They are peaceful, productive, and positive places where all teachers can teach and all students can learn.

Active Listening Skills: Give & Receive Feedback At Work

Active Listening Skills: Give & Receive Feedback At Work | Teaching Empathy | Scoop.it
Description

Learn a professional and systematic way to give and receive feedback at work and in your personal life using the Situation-Behavior-Impact (SBI) model.

Giving or taking bad, critical, or negative feedback at work or in your interpersonal situations can be difficult. There is also a risk of having the conversation turn negative, and escalate into a conflict that is accompanied by negative emotions like anger, frustration, or even fear.

This course will give you skills to listen better and to read the emotions of the other person better so you would be less likely to have your difficult conversations go poorly, and achieve desired outcomes.

LEARN ACTIVE LISTENING

Active listening is a technique that is used in counseling, training, and solving disputes or conflicts. It requires that the listener fully concentrate, understand, respond, and then remember what is being said. This is opposed to other listening techniques like reflective listening and empathic listening

Webinar: Understanding Empathy – The gateway to building strong relationships

Webinar: Understanding Empathy – The gateway to building strong relationships | Teaching Empathy | Scoop.it

Empathy, as a subset of Emotional Intelligence, has long been flagged as a key pillar of effective leadership. Empathy encourages leaders to understand the root cause behind employee performance and feel what another person is experiencing from within their frame of reference. However the difference between empathy and sympathy can be a thin line and understanding the difference can help managers and leaders build better relationships.

Join popular facilitator and speaker Paula Cunniffe on this informative and insightful webinar as we explore empathy and its importance in building strong workplace relationships.

In this webinar you will learn:

  • How to develop a clear understanding of the difference between sympathy and empathy
  • How to approach potentially emotionally challenging situations
  • How to be more in touch with your own emotions and the impact they have on others

Active Listening

  •  Why actively listen?
  •  How to actively listen
  •  Summarising and restating
  • Active listening and facilitation


Active listening is a useful skill for all sorts of situations - whether you're taking part in meetings and workshops or dealing with conflict. By actively listening we can come to understand how the speaker feels about a subject or situation - we hear through their words and tune into their underlying emotions, concerns and tensions.

Active Listening is about suspending our own thought processes and making a conscious effort to understand another person's position. Using our body language, eye contact, and where appropriate, verbal cues - short questions or comments - we can help the speaker formulate their thoughts and reassure them they are being listened to.

This is in contrast to how we listen in normal conversation when we often only lend half an ear to the speaker and continue to think about what we want to say next.

How To Practice Active Listening to Improve Your Relationships

How To Practice Active Listening to Improve Your Relationships | Teaching Empathy | Scoop.it
What is Active Listening?
Active listening is more than sitting quietly on the receiving end of a loved one’s words. It involves thoroughly engaging your mind in the conversation, being curious about what the other person is saying, and holding back from offering advice or observations.


Active listening isn’t passive, and it can be tough to master at first, but once you begin to practice this technique, you will notice that your relationships with others feel more connected and intimate.

Guest comment: David Eagleman and Don Vaughn


We suggest five strategies to narrow the empathic divide.

  1. First, understand our own biases
  2. Second, build a better model of others.
  3. Third, learn and resist the tactics of dehumanisation. 
  4. Fourth, “blind” your biases.
  5. Fifth, entangle group memberships.
