I recently learned about research behind the “helper’s high” — strong feelings people experience from helping others — and am considering preparing a lesson about it.
I’ve gathered some resources here, and would love for people to make additional suggestions:
The Helper’s High is from The Greater Good Science Center.
What We Get When We Give is from Psychology Today.
Helper’s High is from Allan Luks.
Giving Support To Others Has Remarkable Effects On Your Brain is from PsyBlog.
Helping behavior may mitigate academic risk for children from low-income neighborhoods is from Eureka Alert.
Have you ever experienced the ‘helper’s high’ – the feeling you get when you are really kind to someone? pic.twitter.com/hQI8Lh8o0v
