Active Listening

I agree that active listening is a huge part of social work practice. I like the way you described its benefits for the listener as well as for the speaker, in terms of really getting to connect with people and also giving hugs! I think however that many people don't really know the skills of active listening and just think that it means listening carefully. I would suggest that they look into reflecting and asking open questions as two starting points.

The term typically refers to college students who are older than 24, but can refer to other categories of students. See: https://nces.ed.gov/pubs/web/97578e.asp
