HHS 207 Week 3 Discussion 1 Listening in Human Services
Listening in Human Services. 1st Post Due by Day 3. How many times have you either asked or been asked, “Are you listening?” While we might think we know what it means to be an effective listener, different skills are needed to suit different situations. In the human services field, listening is a multi-faceted task that must take into account the needs of the client and the situation being addressed. In this first discussion, you will consider a range of listening skills and consider how they may be used in a human services setting. Specifically, you will identify active listening skills used within interpersonal and group settings.

Consumer Services (04:11)
Consider the stages and skills associated with effective listening in addition to reflecting upon the essential responsibilities associated with one of human service career paths.
