As social workers, we want to help all of the people we come in contact with. Sometimes, we want to fix the other person’s problem while what they really need is to be heard and understood. There are many times that listening is the most important tool we have in helping another person. The video describes the importance of this. For this assignment, watch the video and answer write a one-page reflection paper about the video. You can focus on where you agree or disagree with the presenter, you’re own experience with listening or being heard, how this will be helpful in the field of Social Work.
