The Journal of Self-Reg

Empathy Call for Papers

Empathy is dyadic and a key component of Self-Reg relationships.  It involves the prosocial response to another’s feelings that can be helpful when the empathetic responder is regulated and supportive. However, when the responder becomes dysregulated, the impact can be utterly damaging .  Dr. Shanker wrote in Self-Reg that “a child’s brain is primed for empathy, which develops more broadly and deeply as a result of nurturing child-rearing practices that have been passed down from one generation to the next” (196).  What are the results of positive empathetic interactions, how can this ‘empathy primed brain’ be grown to encourage self-regulation, and what is the result when there is a breakage in the intergenerational inheritance of nurturing empathy.
