Daily Empathy Post #2762 (March 3) Purposeful Empathy"Unflinching empathy, which is the muscle the lesson is designed to exercise, is a prerequisite for literature strong enough to wrestle with the real world. On the page it allows us to spot signs of humanity; off the page it can teach us to start a conversation with the strangest of strangers, to thrive alongside difference. It can even affect those life-or-death choices we make instinctively in a crisis. This kind of empathy has nothing to do with being nice, and it’s not for the faint of heart."Article sourced from The New York TimesPhoto by Geilan Malet-Bates on Unsplash ... See MoreSee Less

Daily Empathy Post #2761 (March 2) Purposeful Empathy"Empathy, often considered a fixed trait, has been shown to be malleable in adults, influenced by observing the empathetic reactions of others. The study utilized Computational Modeling and functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) to demonstrate how empathy levels adjust in adult brains based on social environments.Key findings include the role of the anterior insula in empathy processing, changes in neuronal response due to observational learning, and the implication that creating an empathic work culture can positively shape employee interactions and attitudes."

Daily Empathy Post #2760 (March 1) Purposeful Empathy"A nice boss seems great, they’re pleasant, the workplace culture is probably relaxed. But they overlook bad behavior to avoid conflict. They struggle to have hard conversations. They don’t make the changes they need to make and over time things start to fall apart. The cracks begin to show. An empathetic leader connects with their team on a deeper level and fosters a culture built on trust and mutual understanding. Then they make the hard decisions that are necessary to keep things moving forward." Article sourced from MediumPhoto by Medium ... See MoreSee Less

Daily Empathy Post #2759 (February 29) Purposeful Empathy"While he was a resident at Emory University in Atlanta from 2016-19, Grant saw first-hand the persistent and insidious consequences of implicit bias. In medicine, these hidden attitudes and stereotypes create blind spots that adversely affect patient care – and undermine the best intentions of medical caregivers.Grant started giving presentations to his peers and colleagues to bring awareness to this hidden menace."Article sourced from Davidson CollegePhoto by Bermix Studio on Unsplash ...

Daily Empathy Post 2758 (February 28) Purposeful Empathy"Empathy, sympathy, and emotion regulation are core components of social–emotional development. Regulating vicariously induced negative emotions is thought to support feeling empathy and sympathy for others in need, but empirical evidence for such effects is mixed. Moreover, despite the longstanding conceptual distinction between empathy and sympathy, most researchers refer to and measure these constructs interchangeably. This meta-analysis examined associations between emotion regulation and empathy and/or sympathy in childhood and adolescence, as well as potential methodological, study, and sample moderators."Journal article sourced from APA DatabasesPhoto by Annie Spratt on Unsplash ...
