Toward sensitive practice: issues for physical therapists working with survivors of childhood sexual abuse. (1/652)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The high rates of prevalence of childhood sexual abuse in the United States and Canada suggest that physical therapists work, often unknowingly, with adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse. The purposes of this qualitative study were to explore the reactions of adult female survivors of childhood sexual abuse to physical therapy and to listen to their ideas about how practitioners could be more sensitive to their needs. The dynamics and long-term sequelae of childhood sexual abuse, as currently understood by mental health researchers and as described by the participants, are summarized to provide a context for the findings of this study. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: Twenty-seven female survivors (aged 19-62 years) participated in semistructured interviews in which they described their reactions to physical therapy. RESULTS: Survivors' reactions to physical therapy, termed "long-term sequelae of abuse that detract from feeling safe in physical therapy," are reported. Participant-identified suggestions that could contribute to the sense of safety are shared. CONCLUSIONS AND DISCUSSION: Although the physical therapist cannot change the survivor's history, an appreciation of issues associated with child sexual abuse theoretically can increase clinicians' understanding of survivors' reactions during treatment. We believe that attention by the physical therapist to the client's sense of safety throughout treatment can maximize the benefits of the physical therapy experience for the client who is a survivor.  (+info)

The broken mirror. A self psychological treatment perspective for relationship violence. (2/652)

Clinicians face formidable challenges in working with male perpetrators of domestic violence. Many treatment programs use a confrontational approach that emphasizes male entitlement and patriarchal societal attitudes, without honoring the genuine psychological pain of the abusive male. Although some men with strong psychopathic tendencies are almost impossible to treat, the majority of spouse-abusing males respond best to an empathic, client-centered, self psychological approach that also includes education about sociocultural issues and specific skill building. Understanding the deprivations in mirroring selfobject functions from which these men typically suffer facilitates clinical treatment response. While insisting that men take full responsibility for their abusive behavior, treatment approaches can still be most effective by addressing inherent psychological issues. Group leaders who can offer respect for perpetrators' history, their experience of powerlessness, and their emotional injuries in primary relationships are more likely to make an impact.  (+info)

Physician characteristics and the physician-patient relationship. Impact of sex, year of graduation, and specialty. (3/652)

OBJECTIVE: To examine the association of physician sex, medical specialty, and year of graduation from medical school with attitudes and behaviours that define physician-patient relationships. Hypotheses tested are that women physicians, family physicians, and recent graduates spend more time discussing lifestyle and general health issues during patients' first visits; are more likely to report behaviours that are empathetic and that encourage communication with patients; are less likely to view their role as directive and problem-oriented; and are more supportive of patients' rights to information and participation in decision making. DESIGN: A survey was mailed to a stratified random sample of physicians between February and June 1996. SETTING: Physician practices in Ontario. PARTICIPANTS: Of 714 practising Ontario physicians, 405 (57%) responded. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Proportion of time and actual time spent discussing a patient's lifestyle during a first visit, communication style, attitudes regarding a directive approach to care, and attitudes regarding patients' rights. RESULTS: Women physicians and family physicians spent significantly more time discussing lifestyle during a first visit. Women, family physicians, and recent graduates were significantly more likely to report an empathetic communication style. Women and recent graduates were significantly less likely to have a directive, problem-oriented approach to care. Family physicians were significantly less supportive of patients' rights than medical and surgical specialists were. CONCLUSIONS: Physicians in this study reported empathetic communication styles and attitudes that support information sharing and patients' rights.  (+info)

The importance of intuition in the occupational medicine clinical consultation. (4/652)

Clinical consultation involves unspoken elements which flow between doctor and patient. They are vital ingredients of successful patient management but are not easily measured, objective or evidence-based. These elements include empathy and intuition for what the patient is experiencing and trying to express, or indeed suppressing. Time is needed to explore the instinctive feeling for what is important, particularly in present day society which increasingly recognizes the worth of psychosocial factors. This time should be available in the occupational health consultation. In this paper the importance of intuition and its essential value in the clinical interview are traced through history. Differences between intuition and empathy are explored and the use of intuition as a clinical tool is examined.  (+info)

Threats to global health and survival: the growing crises of tropical infectious diseases--our "unfinished agenda". (5/652)

Health, one of our most unassailable human values, transcends all geographic, political, and cultural boundaries. The health problems of the rapidly growing 80% of the world's population that live in the tropical developing countries of Asia, Africa, and Latin America pose major threats to industrialized as well as developing regions. These threats can be divided into three areas, or three "E"s: (1) emerging, reemerging, and antimicrobial-resistant infections; (2) exploding populations without improved health; and (3) erosion of our humanity or leadership if we ignore the growing health problems of the poor. Our assessment of current trends in global population distribution and resource consumption; DALY calculations, causes, and distribution of global mortality and morbidity; and the misperceptions about and maldistribution of resources for health point to the critical importance of addressing tropical infectious diseases and global health for preservation of democracy and civilization as we know it.  (+info)

Changing attitudes about schizophrenia. (6/652)

Research on the effectiveness of short-term education programs in changing societal attitudes about mental illness has been mixed. Education efforts seem to be mediated by characteristics of the program participants. This study determines whether the effects of a specially prepared, semester-long course on severe mental illness are mediated by pre-education knowledge about and contact with severe mental illness. Eighty-three participants who were enrolled in either a course on severe mental illness or general psychology completed the Opinions about Mental Illness Questionnaire before beginning the course and at completion. Research participants also completed a pre-and posttest of knowledge about mental illness and a pretest on their contact with people who have severe mental illness. The education program had positive effects on some attitudes about mental illness. Interestingly, the effects of education group interacted with pre-education knowledge and contact and varied depending on attitude. Participants with more pre-education knowledge and contact were less likely to endorse benevolence attitudes after completing the education program. Participants with more intimate contact showed less improvement in attitudes about social restrictiveness. Implications of these augmentation and ceiling effects are discussed.  (+info)

Countertransference and empathic problems in therapists/helpers working with psychotraumatized persons. (7/652)

Countertransference in therapists working with patients with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) differs from countertransference in other psychotherapeutical settings. In this article we discuss the specificities of counter- transference in treating PTSD patients and its relation to empathy. The most difficult countertransference problems occur in treating multiply traumatized patients. Countertransference may occur towards an event (e.g., war), patients who have killed people, as well as to colleagues who avoid treating PTSD patients, or towards a supervisor who avoids, either directly or indirectly, supervision of therapists working with PTSD patients. Our recommendation for the prevention of problems in treating PTSD patients include : 1) careful selection of the therapist or helper, both in the personality structure and training; 2) prevention by debriefing and team work and peer supervision; and 3) education - theoretical, practical, and therapeutical.  (+info)

Development and testing of a visit-specific patient satisfaction questionnaire: the Princess Margaret Hospital Satisfaction With Doctor Questionnaire. (8/652)

PURPOSE: To develop a psychometrically sound patient-satisfaction-with-physician questionnaire that can be used in an outpatient oncology setting. PATIENTS AND METHODS: The questionnaire was developed by a four-step process involving a total of 277 cancer patients. The item-generation process utilized input from 95 oncology outpatients, three medical researchers, and the relevant literature. Items were tested by 70 of the above patients. Initial item reduction was achieved by input from another eight patients. Factor analysis and validity testing used data derived from a different group of 174 oncology outpatients. Convergent validity was tested by correlating the Princess Margaret Hospital Patient Satisfaction with Doctor Questionnaire (PMH/PSQ-MD) with Rubin et al's Physician subscale of the Patient's Viewpoint Questionnaire (PS-PVQ) and Smith et al's Patient-Doctor Interaction Scale (PDIS). Divergent validity was tested by comparing these questionnaires with Spitzer's quality of life (QOL) questionnaire. RESULTS: The final PMH/PSQ-MD is a 29-item self-administered questionnaire with four response categories and a "does not apply" category. Four domains were confirmed by factor analysis: (1) information exchange, (2) interpersonal skills, (3) empathy, and (4) quality of time. The questionnaire has an overall Cronbach's alpha of 0.97; the values for each domain are, respectively, 0.92, 0.90, 0. 88, and 0.88. The PMH/PSQ-MD correlated well with both the PDIS and the PS-PVQ (P <.001 for both). Divergent validity was confirmed with Spitzer's QOL questionnaire. CONCLUSION: The PMH/PSQ-MD is an outpatient satisfaction questionnaire specific to the patient-physician interaction that has shown excellent internal consistency, is feasible, and has strong support for validity in this oncology population.  (+info)

Participants. Participants included 704 physicians (74% men, 26% women) in the Jefferson Health System affiliated with Thomas Jefferson University Hospital and Jefferson Medical College in the greater Philadelphia region. Participants mean age was 46.8 years, with a standard deviation of 10.5, range from 29 to 87 years.. Instrument. The Jefferson Scale of Physician Empathy9 was used. This scale was originally developed to measure the orientation of medical students toward physician empathy in patient-care situations (Student or S Version).8 The scale was constructed based on an extensive review of the literature, followed by pilot studies with samples of physicians, students, and residents.8 After several refinements, the instrument included 20 Likert-type items answered on a seven-point scale (1 = strongly disagree, 7 = strongly agree).. Psychometric data in support of the construct validity and criterion-related validity (convergent and discriminate) of the S-Version of the scale have ...
Objective. To validate an empathy scale to measure empathy in pharmacy and nursing students. Methods. A 15-item instrument comprised of the cognitive and affective empathy domains, was created. Each item was rated using a 7-point Likert scale, ranging from strongly disagree to strongly agree. Concurrent validity was demonstrated with the Jefferson Scale of Empathy - Health Professional Students (JSE-HPS). Results. Reliability analysis of data from 216 students (pharmacy, N=158; nursing, N=58) showed that scores on the empathy scale were positively associated with JSE-HPS scores (p Conclusions. Results of this study demonstrate the reliability and validity of a new scale for evaluating student empathy. Further testing of the scale at other universities is needed to establish validity.
Northern Arizona University, USA ([email protected]). Abstract:. A cross-cultural study was conducted to examine differences in self-compassion and empathy among Chinese and American undergraduates. Forty Chinese and 41 American undergraduates completed the Self-Compassion Scale (SCS) and Interpersonal Reactivity Index (IRI). Groups did not significantly differ in overall Self-Compassion or Empathy. However, significant differences were found in the Self-Kindness, Common Humanity, Isolation, and Over-Identification SCS subscales and the Personal Distress IRI subscale (Chinese , American). American students reported significantly higher scores on the Fantasy and Empathic Concern IRI subscales. Gender differences were stable across groups. The results of this study have implications for understanding self- and other-directed pro-social attitudes, beliefs and behaviors across cultures..

This study examined the relationship of cognitive and emotional empathy with social behaviors, in a sample of 53 10-12-year-old Korean children. Cognitive empathy was measured by a battery of theory of mind tasks. Emotional empathy was measured by facial mimicry response, based on the assumption that emotional contagion by facial mimicry is a key factor in emotional empathy. Facial mimicry scores were calculated using the facial EMG activity in the zygomaticus major and corrugator supercilii mus
Empathy is an essential attribute for medical professionals. Yet, evidence indicates that medical learners empathy levels decline dramatically during medical school. Training in evidence-based observation and mindfulness has the potential to bolster the acquisition and demonstration of empathic behaviours for medical learners. In this prospective cohort study, we explore the impact of a course in arts-based visual literacy and mindfulness practice (Art of Seeing) on the empathic response of medical residents engaged in obstetrics and gynaecology and family medicine training. Following this multifaceted arts-based programme that integrates the facilitated viewing of art and dance, art-making, and mindfulness-based practices into a practitioner-patient context, 15 resident trainees completed the previously validated Interpersonal Reactivity Index, Compassion, and Mindfulness Scales. Fourteen participants also participated in semistructured interviews that probed their perceived impacts of the ...
Empathy is frequently considered an important component of human service training with some students demonstrating more empathy than others. It is proposed that skilled practitioners have demonstrated advanced empathy and included it as part of their teachings. Some authors have attempted to describe advanced empathy, but the published descriptions lack clarity. The lack of clarity surrounding the definition of empathy is problematic for research progress and for teaching advanced empathy. It is proposed that the disparity of definitions is linked to variations in authors empathy development, ranging from novice to expert. At the expert development level, a form of advanced holistic empathy is here termed halopathy . Defining the possible characteristics of halopathy is the main focus of this research. This exploratory conceptual research proposes a new model to define empathy. This model is tied to the idea that halopathy exists and that its effects can be described. The research design is
The construct of empathy may be located conceptually at several different points in a network of social cognition and vicarious emotion. This paper discusses one specific form of emotional empathy, empathy in response to perceiving another person in need. First, evidence is reviewed suggesting that there are at least two distinct types of congruent vicarious emotional responses to perceiving another in need: feelings of personal distress (e.g., alarmed, upset, worried, disturbed, distressed, troubled, etc.), and feelings of empathy (e.g., sympathetic, moved, compassionate, tender, warm, softhearted, etc.). Next, evidence is reviewed suggesting that these two vicarious emotions have distinct motivational consequences. Whereas personal distress seems to evoke egoistic motivation to reduce ones own aversive arousal, as a traditional Hullian tension-reduction model would propose, empathy does not. Motivation evoked by empathy appears to be altruistic. The ultimate goal seems to be
The hypothesis of a positive relationship between physicians empathy and patients clinical outcomes was confirmed, suggesting that physicians empathy is an important factor associated with clinical competence and patient outcomes.
Abstract:. Background: Researchers have described empathy as a cognitive attribute, which means it predominantly involves understanding another persons concerns. It has also been described as an affective or emotional characteristic, which implies that it primarily involves feeling another persons pain and suffering. Because empathic patient interactions by dentists are associated with improved patient outcomes, self-reported declines in empathy during dental student training are a concern.. Aim: To measure empathy levels among 3rd year, 4th year undergraduate students and interns studying in dental colleges of Bangalore city and to investigate the differences in empathy scores based on gender and year of dental training.. Methodology: A cross sectional descriptive research was undertaken among 800 dental students (3rd year, final year and interns) to measure the empathy levels using Jefferson Scale of Physician Empathy-Health Professionals Version (JSPE-HP) questionnaire containing 20 items ...

This research is an exploration of empathy in the classroom from the standpoint of how instructors experience it and understand themselves to communicate it to their students, particularly students from different cultural backgrounds. The research method used was ethnographic analysis of a classroom observation and a one-hour semi-structured interview with each of nine university instructors. Major findings are presented through five themes derived from analysis of participants input: definitions of empathy, overt communication of empathy, empathy as mutual engagement, empathy as identity expression, and constraints and drawbacks to empathy. These instructors communicate empathy in ways that address most of the full spectrum of its meanings: emotional, cognitive, and relational. They give weight to academic identities in their experience and expression of empathy with students, which potentially reduces the negative effects of nondominant social identities, but also introduces the potential for ...

Background. Lack of empathy has been proposed to account for the characteristic behavioral problems exhibited by adolescents with conduct disorder (CD). Hence, the aim of this study was to determine whether adolescents with CD exhibit atypical affective and cognitive neural empathic responses during pain-related empathy processing.Methods. A total of 30 adolescents with a CD diagnosis and 36 without CD symptoms were recruited from out-patient clinics and local middle schools in the same region, respectively. All 66 participants were subjected to functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) while viewing video clips depicting a face with a neutral expression receiving non-painful stimulation (Q-tip touch) or a face with a painful expression receiving painful stimulation (needle penetration) applied to the left or right cheek.Results. The regions associated with affective and cognitive empathy were activated in the HC group during pain-related empathy processing. Compared to HCs, adolescents with CD
Communication can not work without empathy and thats why empathy is hopefully the most important factor in your companys culture. Every once in awhile, someone does a talk or writes a post about why empathy is important and why it should be your number one skill. These are very informative, but most of them are missing one key factor: what doesnt constitute as empathy. Lets jump right in.. Empathy is not sympathy. Sympathy is feeling pity and sorrow for someone. Pity is conjured up when you witness someones misfortune and have an uncomfortable, negative reaction to their circumstance. Pity can sometimes be sorrow, but it is often based in shame. You feel ashamed for the person that got reprimanded by their boss in front of the entire team. You want to grant mercy to the person clearly bombing their presentation to the client.. Do you see how these things arent empathy? Often, to have true empathy, you must set aside your feelings about the situation in order to net the best result. Pity, ...
Id have highlighted this vid simply for that robust stand on the power of empathy, but in its ten minutes Krznaric introduces several compelling ideas. He describes two related but distinct forms of empathy, affected empathy, when one individual mirrors anothers pain, joy, etc., and cognitive empathy, the perspective shifting that Native Americans describe as walking a mile in another mans moccasins. As inspiration for expanding our empathic potential, Krznaric cites the work of George Orwell, not as chronicler of distopian futures, but as the immersive author of Down and Out in Paris and London. He could as well have mentioned the peasant paintings of Van Gogh, the New Deal photographs of Russell Lee, or the documentaries of Agnès Varda, among countless examples. He also reminds us that empathy can powerfully transform society, as it did in the English anti-slavery campaigns of the 1820s and U.S. Abolitionist movement forty years later. ...
Fostering an empathetic culture isnt always a seamless process. One of the biggest challenges is closing the empathy gap-the difference in how employers and employees define empathy, value it, and demonstrate it. We found that 9 in 10 respondents agree that workplace empathy is important.. Yet, most employees think its desperately lacking: Only 49% rate U.S. organizations as empathetic and 85% say empathy is undervalued by U.S. businesses. Further, 80% of employees think that empathy in the workplace needs to evolve, versus 57% of CEOs.. With employee engagement levels steadfastly low and skilled labor in high demand, employers have to do more to recruit and retain top talent, and empathy must be a part of the strategy. Here are three dos and donts weve found to be successful:. Dont assume-ask. Often, people think the best way to demonstrate empathy is to imagine what others want, but leaders dont spend enough time simply asking employees, then listening. Leaders must do their part to ...

While there has been much interest in the apparent benefits of empathy in improving outcomes of medical care, there is continuing concern over the philosophical nature of empathy. We suggest that part of the difficulty in coming to terms with empathy is due to the modernist dichotomies that have structured Western medical discourse, such that doctor and patient, knower and known, cognitive and emotional, subject and object are situated in oppositional terms, with the result that such accounts cannot coherently encompass an emotional doctor, or a patient as knower, or empathy as other than a possession or a trait. This paper explores what, by contrast, a radical critique of the Cartesian world view, in the form of a Deleuzean theoretical framework, would open up in new perspectives on empathy. We extend the framework of emotional geography to ask what happens when people are affected by empathy. We suggest that doctors and patients might be more productively understood as embodied subjects that ...
The function of empathic concern to process pain is a product of evolutionary adaptation. Focusing on five- to six-year old children, the current study employed eye-tracking in an odd-one-out task (searching for the emotional facial expression among neutral expressions, N = 47) and a pain evaluation task (evaluating the pain intensity of a facial expression, N = 42) to investigate the relationship between childrens empathy and their behavioral and perceptual response to facial pain expression. We found children detected painful expression faster than others (angry, sad, happy), children high in empathy performed better on searching facial expression of pain, and gave higher evaluation of pain intensity; and rating for pain in painful expressions was best predicted by a self-reported empathy score. As for eye-tracking in pain detection, children fixated on pain more quickly, less frequently and for shorter times. Of facial clues, children fixated on eyes and mouth more quickly, more frequently and for
Empathy is notoriously difficult for researchers to define, Cameron says. But you can think of it as the ability to share the experiences of others: If you feel sad, do I vicariously feel your sadness? If you feel joy, do I catch your joy? Empathy is often distinguished from compassion, concern or sympathy, which are more about feeling for someone than feeling with them, Cameron says. Much of Camerons early work on the topic looks at peoples empathy as to some extent a matter of choice, influenced by what people want to feel and their willingness to exert the effort it takes to feel empathy. Weve found that by changing peoples motivations and what they want to feel, you can shift empathy around in quite interesting ways, even in cases where empathy appears especially challenging, Cameron says. In the current set of experiments, Cameron and his co-researchers - including postdoc Daniel Lim and grad student Eliana Hadjiandreou as well as co-investigator David DeSteno of Northeastern ...

One of the great value-added features of the MRG 360 process is that it includes various outcome measures of leadership effectiveness. One of the performance indicators asks respondents to rate a leader on whether he or she demonstrates ethical leadership.. When MRG examined what was the strongest predictor of ethical leadership behaviour out of the 22 competencies in their model, the resounding answer was empathy. In other words, leaders who scored highest on empathy also exhibited the highest levels of ethical leadership.. The results are intuitive. The definition of empathy is, identification with and understanding of anothers situation, feelings, and motives. Using this lens, we can see how empathetic leaders would be much more inclined to act in an ethical manner. Rather than being solely focused on their own needs and their individual responsibilities to their organizations, they are keenly aware of their connection with other people and the broader communities in which they live. ...
The American Association of Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine (AACOM) is sponsoring a groundbreaking nationwide project to study medical student empathy and its relationship to osteopathic medical education (OME) in collaboration with the Sidney Kimmel Medical College at Thomas Jefferson University and Leonard Calabrese, DO, a professor of medicine at Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine.

Secondly, empathy is regarded by some as the ability of blurring the line between self and other. The handy dose of empathy pictured above underlines this. In fact I am amongst the best at blurring the line between self and other. I am a champion at it. One of my killer lines of seduction is to declare. I dont where you end and where I begin we are merged into one.. If that is not a blurring of the line between self and other I do not know what is. I repeatedly explain that I see people as extensions of myself, they are objects that become subsumed within what I am as I swallow up their identity and use their traits as my own. Blurring of lines? I would argue that that is an obliteration. By that definition I am absolutely oozing empathy arent I?. The third reason that I do not like the suggestion that I lack empathy is that empathy is the ...
Come and make your own collection of empathy tools led by artist Enni-Kukka Tuomala, the artist behind the Nunnery Gallerys new exhibition exploring empathy.. This event is part of Is there space for empathy?, an exhibition by Finnish artist Enni-Kukka Tuomala, which examines what empathy means in 2021, in a post-Brexit, post-covid, post-colonial Britain.. Tuomala looks at what role empathy can play in helping us re-enter public life and re-discover physical closeness with each other once again. Her installation makes empathy - an often abstract and intangible feeling - into a physical and tangible form we can see and feel.. All ages are welcome and materials will be provided. Please book a free ticket if you plan to attend to help us manage the event safely.

Empathy and the Process of Socialization - S. Hein. It is likely that the correlation between emotional intelligence (EI) and empathy decreases with age. In other words I suspect that a) children are by nature relatively empathetic and they slowly lose their feelings of empathy, and b) empathy is a relatively larger component of EI in children. Research on adolescents and adults seems to support this hypothesis. (See Emotional intelligence meets traditional standards for an intelligence.) Here is what is probably happening. First there is the socialization process which may lead to a drop in empathy. This could be happening for several reasons. For instance, I have noticed that I cannot feel empathy for someone if I am feeling defensive or if I am preoccupied with my own needs. It makes sense, then, that if children are consistently put on the defensive, or if they grow up with many unmet emotional needs, these children will slowly become more concerned with self-defense and with their own ...
Subscribe to the Empathy Movement Newsletter at http://cultureofempathy.com/Projects/Newsletter/ Dear Friends and Supporters Id like to hear from you. What are your needs for empathy? What would support you in developing a more empathic way of being in your life, family and community? Send me an email and Ill try to address those needs in the next newsletters. In this second newsletter we are focusing on listening. Like any skill, deeply listening or being deeply heard, takes practice, practice, practice. One of the most effective ways Ive found for practicing listening is to have an empathy buddy, i.e. another person(s) with whom to dialog with on a regular basis. Another highly effective process is taking part in a regular Empathy Circle. This circle process was developed for small groups (3 to 5 people) to speak, listen and dialog in a structured way that maximizes mutual and reciprocal empathy. Warmly, Edwin Rutsch Director, Center For Building a Culture of Empathy (Painting is by Mary Cassatt,
For about a decade before I wrote The Age of Empathy, I gathered information on the role of empathy and trust in society -- both human and animal. This material came partly from our own research, but most of it from all kind of external sources, recent articles on human behavior, pieces in the media, lectures I attended, clippings from newspapers, and so on. Stories of empathy and altruism are all around us.. The funny thing is that when were talking about humans, no one sees any problem to ascribe behavior to empathy, even behavior about which I have my doubts. Is a seller of old cars really empathic when he asks about our children or is it truly empathy that drives a politician to tearfully hug the victims of an earthquake, as Berlusconi recently did in Italy? I dont trust every display of empathy in the human species. But with animals, we have the opposite problem. They may act in ways that leave no doubt in my mind, such as when a dog rescues a child from an attacking snake or when a ...
We can then ask, what do clinicians and caregivers need to do to engender empathic concern and compassion? Note that in looking at these data, we begin to put together a simple equation with regard to some of the elements that comprise compassion. They include the ability to be interoceptive (somatic awareness), which can prime for empathy. Empathy, positive regard for others, kindness, and insight form a basis for empathic concern or compassion.. In the 1980s, the social psychologist Batson et al., (26.) noted that there were two distinct emotions that motivate people to help others. The first was termed empathic concern. They reported that empathic concern is another focused congruent emotion that is produced when an individual witnesses another?s suffering. This experience of concern is accompanied by feelings such as tenderness, sympathy, or compassion. Batson et al. called the other emotion personal distress. The focus here is on one?s self and is prompted by the need to relieve one?s own ...
Section 1: Literature Review Page 1 This literature review considers the existing research on empathy and theory of mind in offenders with intellectual disabilities, beginning with definition of the terms and discussion of the importance of considering empathy in terms of its components. Due to a lack of research specific to this area, the review summarises and brings together findings from the separate fields of empathy and theory of mind in offenders and empathy and theory of mind in people with intellectual disabilities .. Existing findings are inconclusive, leaving uncertainty about whether offenders are more or less skilled than non-offenders in these areas and further research is therefore necessary. Section 2: Research Report Page 41 A quantitative comparison IS carried out between a group of offenders with intellectual disabilities and a group of non-offenders with intellectual disabilities. on measures of empathy and theory of mind. Offenders performed significantly better than ...
The word empathy is probably one youve heard bandied about a lot if youve read up much on this whole virtual reality thing.

This was interesting. I would like to read the whole published article on this as my analytical side came out while reading it. While the validity isnt really there because there were only 36 participants and no control (as far as the article stated), I still find it relevant because I can relate as an empath and I know how real empathy is. Im about to finish college with a bachelors in psychology and, for obvious reasons, I love researching empathy. As a graduation requirement I have to conduct an actual experiment under the guidance of a professor and I have been trying to find empirical evidence like this for empathy so that I can do my research on the topic of empathy. Do you happen to know the original article this came from or where I might be able to find more like it? ...

Social neuroscience explores the biological underpinnings of empathic concern and more generally interpersonal sensitivity, using an integrative approach that bridges the biological and social levels.[17] Neural systems, including autonomic functions, that rely on brain stem neuropeptides, such as oxytocin and vasopressin, are plausible correlates for empathic concern. Alternatively, vasopressin might be implicated in situations where a more active strategy is required for an effective response.[18] An association between executive functions, underpinned by the prefrontal cortex with reciprocal connections with the limbic system, the sense of agency, and empathic concern has been suggested based on lesion studies in neurological patients and functional neuroimaging experiments in healthy individuals.[19] The difference between imaging self versus imaging other is supported by a series of functional neuroimaging studies of affective processing. For instance, Lamm, Batson and Decety (2007) found ...

No one cares how much you know, until they know how much you care-Theodore Roosevelt. Empathy: its a buzzword in the UX design world. Everybodys doing it! But what exactly are they doing? There isnt a quick Empathy Filter that we can apply to our work or our team, no formula to pump out results, and no magic words to bring it forth. There is, however, a simple workshop activity that you can facilitate with stakeholders (or anyone responsible for product development, really) to build empathy for your end users. At Cooper, we call it Persona Empathy Mapping.. Empathy mapping helps us consider how other people are thinking and feeling. Typically, research notes are categorized based on what the research interviewees were thinking, feeling, doing, seeing, and hearing as they engaged with your product. It helps your team zoom out from focusing on behaviors to consider the users emotions and experience as well. I first learned about it from Dave Grays Gamestorming: A Playbook for Innovators, ...
The work of health professionals is characterized by a high demand for psychological and emotional resources and high levels of stress. Therefore, the promotion of commitment and job well-being through strategies such as increased mindfulness, is important among nursing workers. Although mindfulness has shown positive effects in the health field, few studies have explored the mechanisms and processes underlying these results. We investigated the mediating role of empathy (cognitive/affective) in the effect of mindfulness on the dimensions of engagement in nursing professionals. Sample was comprised of 1268 Spanish nurses between 22 and 62 years old, that completed the Utrecht Labor Engagement Scale and the adapted versions of Mindful Attention Awareness Scale and Basic Empathy Scale. The relationship between variables to be included in the regression analyses, bivariate correlations were carried out, and the descriptive statistics of these variables were also found. To estimate the mediation model was
Much of the counseling literature identifies the presence of empathy as crucial in creating therapeutic change. However, counselor education has struggled as to what aspects of empathy to develop or focus upon in training, primarily because of existing inconsistencies surrounding definition, development and measurement. An emphasis on quantitative, linear, and reductionistic research methods in counseling psychology has rendered the study of empathy incomplete. Most scales and techniques for training focus on the static, external, and observable manifestations of empathy that are then translated into communication behaviors and skills. This study explored the more internal, contextual, and multidimensional aspects of empathy through the use of qualitative methods.^ The data for this investigation were obtained through a national survey of counselor educators, focus groups and individual interviews with counselors with varying levels of experience, and researcher participant observation in two
Traditional marketing theory and current best practice of marketing strategy formation are out of sync. With current emphasis largely on flexible marketing strategies, there is a constant risk of branding strategy changing without careful consideration of consumer insight. So, the key challenge today is to equip managers and employees with the tools and skills to face this new paradigm. To confront this challenge Claire Brooks, President and MD of ModelPeople Inc, proposes the Strategic Empathy approach. At its core, Strategic Empathy suggests that empathy with and understanding of customers or service users can be learned as a form of muscle memory, helping quick, constructive reactions in strategy and activation. In her new book, Marketing with Strategic Empathy, Brooks explains how marketers can use strategic empathy processes and tools to learn, activate and communicate deep insights and strategies for success.. Theoretically grounded and developed over 12 years of insight and strategy ...
Penn State Sociologist Sam Richards just took attendees at a TED conference on an experiment in empathy. Richards argues that sociology is impossible without empathy, but I think his radical experiment also shows something else: Goodness, at least in the form of the Golden Rule, isnt possible without empathy. We may be able to fake it for a bit and force ourselves to treat someone else the way wed like to be treated, but how long can any of us bludgeon ourselves into doing right when we dont feel any empathy for the other person? I thought I was an empathy expert, but Richards experiment took me places I had never gone before. Beside from shaping my thoughts about goodness in general, Richards experiment also left me pondering the goodness of American foreign policy. What would it look like if all of our politicians and every voter could think like Richards thinks?. Go ahead. I dare you to engage in Richards experiment.. Continue reading →. ...

When intelligence, ruthlessness and empathy co-exist in the same person, one might expect the person concerned to perform certain actions, made possible by the first two attributes, which leave him or her guilt-stricken because of the last. Empathy is a stronger concept than sympathy; empathy allows one to feel what others feel, whether it is joy or pain or grief. When encountered in the same person, it stands to reason that the ability to be merciless would not sit well with the countervailing inclination to empathy. Add power to this precarious mix, and it makes for something explosive.. The eponymous character in (South African director) Gavin Hoods film adaptation (2013) of the first of Orson Scott Cards series of six science fiction novels, Enders Game, is such a complex personality, and although the films running time does not allow the director to dwell at length on the uncomfortable consequences of such a combination of character traits and power, they do show clearly in certain ...
In this dissertation, I argue that we can look to particular aspects of theatre and performance to help us engage in empathy that is respectful and dialogic, that seeks not to consume anothers experience, but rather to engage it. As a work of theatre scholarship, this dissertation seeks to reframe the debate over whether or not theatre is the ideal site of empathy, and whether such empathy can motivate social change. Rather than arguing for or against empathy, I suggest that we must ask what kind of empathy best promotes social change and how the theatre can help us encourage that empathy. I advocate a model of empathy based on a sense of parity, dialogue, and non-linearity. Empathy, I argue, is not a state or a feeling with a stable goal (understanding), but rather a process. As such, it entails an affective and critical labor that requires us to meet the other as our equal and to entertain, imaginatively, his or her perspective on the world. Because the empathy I advocate takes the form of ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Linkage between pain sensitivity and empathic response in adolescents with autism spectrum conditions and conduct disorder symptoms. AU - Chen, Chenyi. AU - Hung, An Yi. AU - Fan, Yang Teng. AU - Tan, Shuai. AU - Hong, Hua. AU - Cheng, Yawei. PY - 2017/2/1. Y1 - 2017/2/1. N2 - Lack of empathy is one of the behavioral hallmarks in individuals with autism spectrum conditions (ASC) as well as youth with conduct disorder symptoms (CDS). Previous research has reliably documented considerable overlap between the perception of others pain and first-hand experience of pain. However, the linkage between empathy for pain and sensitivity to physical pain needs to be empirically determined, particularly in individuals with empathy deficits. This study measured the pressure pain threshold, which indexes sensitization of peripheral nociceptors, and assessed subjective ratings of unpleasantness and pain intensity in response to empathy-eliciting stimuli depicting physical bodily injuries in ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - A preliminary investigation of moral reasoning and empathy after traumatic brain injury in adolescents. AU - Beauchamp, Miriam H. AU - Dooley, James. AU - Anderson, V.. PY - 2013. Y1 - 2013. N2 - Primary objective: Traumatic brain injury (TBI) sustained during childhood can affect a number of socio-cognitive skills; however, little attention has focused on the integrity of moral reasoning in the assessment of post-TBI social sequelae and the role of empathy and intelligence on moral maturity. Research design: In a quasi-experimental, cross-sectional research design, moral reasoning maturity and empathy in adolescents with mild-to-severe TBI (n=25) were compared to typically-developing peers (n=66). Methods and procedures: Participants were administered the So-Moral and So-Mature, tasks of socio-moral reasoning and maturity, the Index of Empathy for Children and Adolescents, the Wechsler Abbreviated Scale of Intelligence and a demographic questionnaire. Main outcomes and results: ...
Based on the enclothed cognition framework, we tested whether the physical experience of wearing a tunic and identifying it with a nursing scrub may enhance empathic and helping responding, compared to the solely physical experience of wearing the scrub or associating with its symbolic meaning. Results of Study 1 (United Kingdom; n = 150) showed that participants who wore a tunic and identified it with a nursing scrub reported higher empathic concern and helped more in a punctual scenario, compared to the other two conditions. Results of Study 2 (Spain; n = 100) supported findings from Study 1 and also showed that participants who wore a tunic and identified it with a nursing scrub volunteered more hours and showed higher response latency for altruistic motivation relevant words. Thus, the current research supports the enclothed cognition framework and shows that it also affects vicarious emotions and prosocial behaviour.. ...
On May 18, 2013, we will be meeting to discuss the topic, How to love an abusive person. There is a reason why Dr. Simon Baron-Cohen published a book entitled, The Science of Evil: On Empathy and the Origins of Cruelty. While he believes that Aspies have good intentions, he attributes their socially clueless behavior to lack of empathy. When on the receiving end of this lack of empathy, many neuro-typicals (non Aspergers) view these behaviors as unloving and even abusive. The question becomes, if the intention is not to cause harm, is it still abuse? Furthermore, how do you hold love in your heart for a person who consistently breaks your heart?. ...

Sympathy for the Record Industry (also known as Sympathy Records or Sympathy 4 the R.I.) is a mainly independent garage rock and punk label formed in 1988 by record industry anti-mogul Long Gone John. The first Sympathy release was the Lazy Cowgirls album Radio Cowgirl LP, which Long Gone John said he released as a favor to the band. Sympathy has a catalog of more than 750 releases, and is based out of Olympia, Washington. The labels name is a play on The Rolling Stones song Sympathy for the Devil. Notable artists who started on Sympathy and went on to gain mainstream success include The White Stripes, Hole, and The Electrocutes (the first Donnas incarnation). Long Gone John is the owner, CEO, and seemingly the only employee of Sympathy. He is an avid record collector, with more than 10,000 records in his collection. He also owns Necessaries Toy Foundation, a company that creates 18-24 inch figures. Long Gone John also operates Sympathetic Press, a book publishing company that prints ...
This study examined the relationships between attachment style, empathy, relationship perfectionism, and relationship quality among a sample of adults currently in a romantic relationship. Based on previous research and conceptual reasoning, it was hypothesized that both attachment anxiety and attachment avoidance would be negatively related to constructive conflict resolution and relationship satisfaction, that empathy would be positively related to constructive conflict resolution and relationship satisfaction, and that relationship perfectionism would be negatively related to constructive conflict resolution and relationship satisfaction. In addition, this study examined the hypothesized mediation effects that both empathy and relationship perfectionism would serve as partial mediators in the relationships between attachment and relationship quality variables of constructive conflict resolution and satisfaction. Because attachment styles are activated during times of distress and conflict ...

The objective of the empathy study is to confirm and extend research linking genetic profile and social intelligence, specifically whether individuals with certain genetic profiles may have a greater natural capacity for optimism and empathy, extraversion, and altruism. The participation requirement is to complete two short standardized online surveys for empathy quotient and other personality attributes. In addition, there is an optionally available Personal Virtual Coach app for empathy-building, a sort of SIRI 2.0 for mental performance optimization.. ...
Background This study aimed to develop a self-report measure of paid caregivers empathy towards people with intellectual disabilities. Materials and Methods Following questionnaire development, 194 staff working in services for people with intellectual disabilities completed self-report questionnaires, including the new empathy measure. The measures factor structure and psychometric properties were investigated. Results A three factor solution suggested two key processes in empathizing: experiencing commonality between ones own and people with intellectual disabilities psychological experiences and efforts to attune to their internal worlds. The final factor represented whether carers find it challenging to empathize. Correlations with beliefs about the self and others in caregiving relationships provided initial evidence of validity, although further investigation is needed. Conclusions The most salient processes in empathizing with people with intellectual disabilities may be different ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Mirror neuron function, psychosis, and empathy in schizophrenia. AU - McCormick, Laurie M.. AU - Brumm, Michael C.. AU - Beadle, Janelle N.. AU - Paradiso, Sergio. AU - Yamada, Thoru. AU - Andreasen, Nancy. PY - 2012/3/31. Y1 - 2012/3/31. N2 - Processing of social and emotional information has been shown to be disturbed in schizophrenia. The biological underpinnings of these abnormalities may be explained by an abnormally functioning mirror neuron system. Yet the relationship between mirror neuron system activity in schizophrenia, as measured using an electroencephalography (EEG) paradigm, and socio-emotional functioning has not been assessed. The present research measured empathy and mirror neuron activity using an established EEG paradigm assessing the integrity of the Mu rhythm (8-13. Hz) suppression over the sensorimotor cortex during observed and actual hand movement in 16 schizophrenia-spectrum disorder (SSD) participants (n= 8 actively psychotic and n= 8 in residual ...

For a long time science has tried to explain the extraordinary human capacity to understand what others feel or think, understand the intentions of others and how to react appropriately to others reactions. The discovery of a brain system called mirror neurons revolutionized this theory. These neurons are activated when we perceive emotions or actions of others, providing the brain with the same information which generates our own emotions or actions. We know what is feeling someone who laughs because, by seeing him, the same areas of the brain that are involved when we laugh are activated. In the same way, it is probable that observing a spider going up the arm of someone the situation does not make us indifferent.. But, what is empathy? Empathy can be defined as that which helps us to exercise a good influence on the emotions of others, It allows us to feel others who we are in the same tuning. Arises as a conscious and unconscious signals, that can be very subtle or very obvious, causing ...

Norman Solomon. The nonprofit Edge Foundation recently asked some of the world?s most eminent scientists, ?What are you optimistic about? Why?? In response, the prominent neuroscientist Marco Iacoboni cites the proliferating experimental work into the neural mechanisms that reveal how humans are ?wired for empathy.?. Iacoboni?s optimism is grounded in his belief that, with the popularization of scientific insights, these recent findings in neuroscience will seep into public awareness and ?. . . this explicit level of understanding our empathic nature will at some point dissolve the massive belief systems that dominate our societies and that threaten to destroy us.? (Iacoboni, 2007, p. 14). While there are reasons to remain skeptical (see below) about the progressive political implications flowing from this work, a body of impressive empirical evidence reveals that the roots of prosocial behavior, including moral sentiments such as empathy, precede the evolution of culture. This work sustains ...
But for a moment, lets set aside the fact that the entire premise of the book is both sneaky and useless, and examine the substance of Blooms anti-empathy argument. It runs roughly as follows: empathy, defined as feeling other peoples emotions, is neither useful or necessary in grounding human morality. Its not necessary, because plenty of people do good things without ever feeling the pain of the people they are helping. And its not useful, because it creates dangerous biases that can result in worse moral decisions. When we hear about the victim of a crime, and we empathize with their suffering, we may rush to support punitive criminal justice policies that have deleterious social consequences. Or when we see a starving child on a charitys leaflet, we may rush to donate, even if this particular charity isnt the most effective at helping children. The more we know about someone who is suffering, the more we are likely to want them to receive special treatment, even at the expense of ...
The link between playing violent video games and antisocial behavior, such as increased aggression and decreased empathy, is hotly debated. In a recent study published in Frontiers in Psychology, the long-term effects of playing violent video games were investigated. This study found that empathy is not blunted by playing such games long-term.

There have been countless scientific articles written documenting experiments which show all manner of empathy, altruism, and cooperation between higher mammals and especially those with highly developed prefrontal cortices. This behavior has been repeatedly identified in human beings, chimpanzees, bonobos, bottlenose dolphins, and elephants. More broadly it has also been seen in the behavior of the more developed mammals.. But what about the lowly, lesser forms of animals, are they indifferent to each other? Are they nothing but dumb brutes competing with peers for survival with no sensitivity to each others plight? Researchers Inbal Ben-Ami Bartal, Jean Decety, and Peggy Mason at the University of Chicago conducted a series of experiments that indicate that even with rats there is empathy and reaction to each others distress. Their experiments led them to conclude there was strong evidence for biological roots of empathically motivated helping behavior.. When there was a free rat in an ...

I was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota. I was the oldest of 4. My dad, Dewaine, was a Lutheran minister. That made me a PK. My mom, Lois, was a homemaker. My dad was active in the Civil Rights Movement and was chaplain to Indoor Sports, a group for handicapped people. I was raised on the music of Pete Seeger. I grew up near Lake Minnetonka, which is a large lake maybe 10 miles west of Minneapolis. I am of half-Norwegian, half-German heritage, like most of the people who lived in my town. I attended Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, Minnesota. While in college, I was active in the anti-Vietnam war movement. One day, the idea for the empathy symbol popped, full-blown, into my head. I felt as if I had been given this, and was spiritually charged to spread it throughout the world. My husband, Mike, does the tech support for the empathy symbol website, for which I am most grateful. I am a teacher, a writer, a reader, a mother, a wife, a sister, an aunt, and a Destination ImagiNation Challenge ...

Emotion regulation plays a key role in mental health and psychopathology. Therefore, it seems important to develop effective forms of emotion regulation. Implementation intentions are if-then plans that help people attain their self-regulatory goals. Perspective-taking and response-focused implementation intentions have been shown to reduce feelings of unpleasantness and arousal, respectively, in response to briefly presented disgusting pictures. The present study addressed the open research questions whether forming these types of implementation intentions is effective in regulating affect during prolonged presentation of disgusting pictures, and whether it is associated with changes in physiological arousal. Eighty-one participants viewed disgusting, neutral, and pleasant pictures of 6 s duration under four instructions: the goal intention to not get disgusted, this goal intention furnished with a perspective-taking or a response-focused implementation intention, and no emotion regulation ...
Subject. One mature Atlantic Salmon (Salmo salar) participated in the fMRI study. The salmon was approximately 18 inches long, weighed 3.8 lbs, and was not alive at the time of scanning. Task. The task administered to the salmon involved completing an open-ended mentalizing task. The salmon was shown a series of photographs depicting human individuals…
I was incredibly moved by her speech and, as a psychologist, I thought the links she made with empathy were profound insights into human nature: by imagining ourselves in other peoples shoes, we develop a heightened empathy for them. In turn, this heightened empathy moves some of us to act on behalf of others. Her remarks also left me wondering about the implications for people with autism and Aspergers disorder, disorders that are typically marked by low levels of empathy. Did their difficulties with empathy mean that they also had difficulties imagining? It turns out that Rowling was on to something: children with autism have less imaginative play--they have difficulty generating novel ideas, particularly those that involve language (click here for an abstract about this work). Thus, some of the implications of her observations are supported by research ...
While science has made great strides in treating pathologies of the human mind, far less research exists to date on positive qualities of the human mind including compassion, altruism and empathy. Yet these prosocial traits are innate to us and lie at the very centerpiece of our common humanity. Our capacity to feel compassion has ensured the survival and thriving of our species over millennia. For this reason, the Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education (CCARE) at Stanford University School of Medicine was founded in 2008 with the explicit goal of promoting, supporting, and conducting rigorous scientific studies of compassion and altruistic behavior. Founded and directed by Dr. James Doty, Clinical Professor of Neurosurgery, CCARE is established within the Department of Neurosurgery. To date, CCARE has collaborated with a number of prominent neuroscientists, behavioral scientists, geneticists and biomedical researchers to closely examine the physiological and psychological ...
We all want to live in a world where we all get along. I think that the cult bonds under pressure from the scientists. The more we ridicule them and create a paradigm of us and them, the thicker their bubble becomes. Their paradigm of positive thinking, non-judgment, whatever works for you etc is reinforced by our rejection of these ideals. Unfortunately, these are cancers growing on the organs of empathy. Empathy and compassion are as strong as any human desire or emotion. When you arent a realist, its easy to abuse the natural pleasure of empathy and compassion by warping these emotions into whatever you want to extend the effect. I think that when you are confronted by realistic empathy, it shocks you out of the cult better than facts or challenge. These people are looking for a good life and a community more than anything. If we can concentrate on human solidarity and treat our cultist friends as long-lost siblings instead of dangerous mutants perhaps we can move far quicker along. ...

My most heartfelt sympathy (though empathy i feel is more correct) goes out to the victims of the Victorian Bush Fires. Natural disasters, though in this case not entirely natural, are utterly devastating and leave everyone in a state of shock as such a mass of people are affected. I can only imagine the state of those people who are just waiting to hear if their loved ones are amongst those hundreds who have perished. And those lucky ones who were not injured must begin their lives once again as all they have owned and known is now lost ...
Listen carefully to your womans truth, even if it comes in the form of anger or upset. Shes trying to communicate something important. Be genuinely curious. Ask, What are you feeling upset about? I want to know because I care how you feel. If you dont ask, you wont get the information you need to improve yourself or to love her more deeply.. The isolation of narcissism prevents empathy. Empathy is a natural ability we were all born with. Its feeling the feelings of others, as if they were your feelings. But most boys got this emotional talent squeezed or beaten out of them during their upbringing. Most of us were told, or shown, that its not manly to feel deeply, or cry, or share in the suffering of others. We were expected to be tough, impervious to pain. Too often we were taught how to inflict suffering on others. Empathy is not a valued emotion in competitive sports, military operations, or the cut-throat world of business.. As men, we can re-learn this crucial skill of empathy. ...
Written by Julia Hogan.. When youre having a difficult time, rather than berating yourself, try self-compassion. As a therapist, Ive heard so many of my patients say they dont deserve the same level of compassion that they give their friends. Of course I would be supportive of my friend as she struggles again and again to get her drinking under control, they tell me. But Im just a failure when it comes to eating healthy. I should get it right. I remind my clients that we all make mistakes, and that doesnt make us horrible people. No one, including you, is infallible, and thats okay. Research shows that people who practice self-compassion experience a host of benefits including lower levels of depression and anxiety and they are more optimistic..

Although accumulating evidence highlights a crucial role of the insular cortex in feelings, empathy and processing uncertainty in the context of decision making, neuroscientific models of affective learning and decision making have mostly focused on structures such as the amygdala and the striatum. Here, we propose a unifying model in which insula cortex supports different levels of representation of current and predictive states allowing for error-based learning of both feeling states and uncertainty. This information is then integrated in a general subjective feeling state which is modulated by individual preferences such as risk aversion and contextual appraisal. Such mechanisms could facilitate affective learning and regulation of body homeostasis, and could also guide decision making in complex and uncertain environments. ...
Dev Patnaik with Peter Mortensen explored how organisations of all kinds prosper when they tap into a power each of us has: empathy, the ability to connect with other people. Their books called Wired to Care and its something I often come back to as a reference source.. They cite an example from 1893 when more than 200 leaders from over 40 countries came together for a Parliament of World Religions. The goal was to see if they shared any common ground. Imagine that happening today and how long it would take! Anyway, the leaders all had different religious beliefs but did find one thing they all shared as a unifying belief, The Golden Rule. Their declaration was The Ethic of Reciprocity, a belief that humans have the capacity to put themselves in someone elses shoes, which is the root of moral behaviour. Wired to Care goes on to explore great examples of brands that work to The Golden Rule, something which is a natural human behaviour and inherent in the human brain. They highlight that ...
In continuing the discussion of psychological antecedents to forgiveness, psychologists rightly place a high value on the trait of empathy. Riek and Mania write,
An excerpt from Dr. Sherkows new book:. It is our point of view that autistic symptoms, regardless of etiology, represent a final common pathway of neuronal processes that interfere with establishing adequate communication and empathy between child and caregivers. This disruption in interpersonal connections is difficult to repair or grow. Typically, the autistic child has moved onto an atypical developmental trajectory, having at some point lost the ability to communicate his needs and feelings to his parents. In turn, the parents have understandably reacted with fear, anxiety, disappointment, frustration, and remorse. Thus, a neurobiological disorder produces psychological consequences.. - Autism Spectrum Disorder: Perspectives from Psychoanalysis and Neuroscience by Susan P. Sherkow and Alexandra M. Harrison with contributions by William M. Singletary, page xxvi. Want to read more? The book is now available from Amazon.com and Rowman & Littlefield.. ...

In an op-ed article in The New York Times (February 27, 2014) about the challenges of designing training courses to help physicians communicate more effectively with patients about important topics such as end-of-life care, Timothy D. Gilligan, MD, and Mikkael A. Sekeres, MD, of the Cleveland Clinic wrote, as we devote more time to teaching students and doctors effective communication techniques, we risk muting their authentic human voices, and instead of learning to connect they apply rote tools and scripts. They also warned that communication courses using what they called a script for empathy run the risk of contrived responses. Having physicians sound like customer service representatives is not the goal, they wrote.. Walter F. Baile, MD, one of the originators of a six-step strategy that uses simulation and role-playing to train physicians how to break bad news to patients with cancer, told The ASCO Post that he was aware of that concern. I think you have to be genuine, Dr. Baile ...
