PSY 198SEM - Empathizing with Empathy

Why do we cringe away from the pain of others? Why does it make us uncomfortable to see others uncomfortable? What motivates us to act, often against our own best interest, to help our friends, family, or strangers? For many, trying to understand and alleviate the pain of others is a way of life, but what might contribute to a behavior that, on the surface, appears to bring more pain than pleasure? This course will investigate the causes, consequences, uses, and presentation of empathy in our daily lives, with a particular emphasis on the relationship between empathy and prosocial behavior.
