In therapy, people are eager to be heard. They want to tell their story and they want rapid solutions. The desire to remove the pain fuels their attentiveness. However, pain is part of their story. It can not be erased. We learn to live around pain, create more spaces of awareness, and develop tools of tolerance. We can encase pain with a barrier, allowing pain to smooth out, to soften, and dull. Pain can be absorbed to create a deeper understanding and empathy. Pain can be the transition to love. It is not the pain that needs to be removed, it is the space around the pain that needs to be expanded.

Calling all listeners, are you as good as you think? If you want to brush up on listening and test your knowledge give yourself a point for every yes you get.


LISTENING SKILLS TEST

  1. I engage with mindful intention to remain focused on the conversation while someone is speaking.

  2. I make sure people are finished with a thought before I speak.

  3. I ask clarifying questions.

  4. I summarize points that were made.

  5. I let go of the topic when the conversation moves on.

  6. I engage in non-verbal behaviors such as head nodding or smiling.

  7. I engage in open communication.

So the higher the number the more polished your skills. Test out these tricks and see if you can create deeper, more meaningful conversations!
