Sometimes we may be in such a rush to connect with someone that we don’t actually listen to what they might be telling us. We might jump in to empathize in a way that inadvertently shuts the other person down, or we may get distracted thinking of what to say when it’s our turn to speak. In this session, students will learn and practice strategies to be a more present and engaged listener in a variety of different circumstances. Outreach Psychologist Jess Joseph, PhD, and Women*s Center Director Amada Sandoval will facilitate. Open to graduate and undergraduate students.
