Daily Empathy Post #2756 (February 26) Purposeful Empathy"What we called 'web design' a couple of decades ago has now evolved into 'UX design.' We are increasingly designing user-centric experiences, driven by the evolution of technology and digital interfaces. Modern-day interfaces focus on ease of use for everyone, regardless of their tech-savviness. This makes empathy with the user a critical aspect of the design process. Empathy-driven design is significant in the fintech and digital lending space, where building trust and loyalty are the keys to success. Here’s a look at what digital lenders can achieve via empathy-driven design." Article sourced from Express ComputerPhoto by Getty Images on Unsplash ... See MoreSee Less

Daily Empathy Post #2754 (February 24) Purposeful Empathy"As part of an exercise led by the Alliance to End Homelessness Ottawa (the Alliance) in partnership with the Office of Social Accountability and Francophone Affairs, first-year medical students had the chance to experience a situation that is unfortunately lived by many and understood by few. They were participating in the Empathy Project, an immersive learning experience offering a unique opportunity to step into the shoes of those facing poverty. The program is designed to offer firsthand insight into the challenges people encounter while striving to meet their basic needs. Students engaged in roleplay simulating a 'day-in-the-life' of an individual seeking housing, employment, legal aid, food and income support. Volunteer facilitators included Alliance team members, people with lived experience, individuals from the wider Ottawa community and members of the Faculty of Medicine. They played a variety of roles as well, interacting with students as they attempted to navigate the complex process."Article sourced from uOttawaPhoto by Levi Meir Clancy on Unsplash ...

Daily Empathy Post #2753 (February 23) Purposeful Empathy"Researchers are increasingly interested in the potential role of empathy and prosocial behavior in understanding the therapeutic benefits of psilocybin. Psilocybin has been associated with increases in empathy, prosocial behavior, and a sense of connectedness with others, which may contribute to its antidepressant effects. These significant alterations in social processing could be vital for a comprehensive understanding of psilocybin’s mechanism of action and therapeutic potential. Some researchers propose that psilocybin may catalyze a positive feedback loop involving empathy and prosocial behavior, which may in part lead to enduring therapeutic benefits."Article sourced from MedrivaPhoto by Igor Omilaev on Unsplash ...

Daily Empathy Post #2752 (February 22) Purposeful Empathy"Empathy is a potent force that significantly impacts team dynamics in several ways. Empathy fosters candid communication among team members, a crucial aspect of effective collaboration. Team members are more inclined to voice their thoughts and opinions openly, especially in the face of conflict, when they feel acknowledged and heard. Better decision-making and more inventive problem-solving are frequently the results of this open discussion. Furthermore, empathy fosters a culture of psychological safety within the team, allowing members to take chances and make errors without worrying about criticism or retaliation."Article sourced from Programming InsiderPhoto by Memento Media on Unsplash ...
