The Process of the Listening Visit – Challenges and Successes
Employing the philosophy of the Listening Visit can be a daunting task for some practitioners as it contravenes the need for prescriptive interventions. The key to the Listening visit is empathetic responses, developed by paraphrasing, reflecting and summarising what the parent has said. The clear understanding of the difference between thoughts and feelings can help clarify the parent’s reasoning. Sound interpretation of the parent’s emotions, experiences and subsequent behaviours, can convey thoughts from a superficial to a more intense level. Maintaining this attention to detail allows the parent to remain focused, and, as a partnership, the mother and health worker can explore coping strategies, problem solving and cognitive behavioural techniques. It is important to consider the mental well being of the Practitioner and this is explored to ensure that they are also aware of their own thoughts and feelings.
