Active Listening: Techniques that Work for Children and Parents

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

Active Listening: Techniques that Work for Children and Parents is a 3-hour online continuing education (CE/CEU) course that offers a valuable compilation of practical and ready-to-use strategies and techniques for building children’s confidence and success by using active listening, one of the key components in developing and maintaining healthy professional and personal relationships. Without this set of skills, clinicians are likely to miss essential pieces of information their clients are trying to communicate to them, whether with words or with behavior. When the word “active” is added to “listening” it alters and amplifies the communication process to include a dynamic feedback loop in which the speaker and the listener validate that each party has been accurately heard.

Appropriate use of listening skills by a clinician can increase self-esteem in young clients and motivate them to learn. Using active listening skills, clinicians become more confident and manage their therapy and counseling sessions with a broader and mutually respectful dialogue. This course is about the application of active listening techniques to a wide variety of clinical, classroom, and home situations, including sections on positive thinking and resilience, problem-solving skills, and the communication of emotion
