  • OARS (Open-ended questions, Affirmations, Reflections, and Summaries) support a meaningful conversation.
  • Use OARS to obtain relevant information and build a trusting relationship.

Important Reminders

  • Vulnerability is a sign of strength, not weakness.

  • Allowing oneself to be vulnerable creates a sense of closeness with others and builds trustful relationships.

  • Avoid mistaking sympathy for empathy, and focus on creating a safe and non-judgmental space.### Exploring Vulnerability and Connection

  • Dr. Brené Brown's research highlights the connection between vulnerability, intimacy, and shame, and how it affects our belief system and sense of worthiness.

  • This belief system can lead to feelings of loneliness and isolation, despite our desire for connection.

  • Our defenses can block real connection and intimacy, as we try to protect ourselves from perceived rejection and judgement.

Attachment vs Authenticity

  • To build real, authentic, and positive relationships, we need to allow others to see our true selves.
  • This requires an inclusive relationship with ourselves, including our perceived faults, flaws, and shortcomings.
  • We need to make peace with our "shadow" self, which includes the things we hide due to fear of being judged as "not good enough," "weak," "incapable," or "undeserving."

Active Listening

  • Active listening is a loving process that involves verbal and non-verbal communication, observation, and reflection.
  • It helps the person feel safe, supported, heard, and understood, and enables them to express their thoughts and feelings more clearly.

    • Reflecting content and feelings
    • Remaining in touch with oneself and the effect on the listener

Conducting an Effective Interview

  • Using a mix of open-ended and closed-ended questions can help facilitate a fluid and conversational interview.
  • Open-ended questions invite elaboration and exploration, while closed-ended questions clarify specific details.
  • Asking for clarification and reflecting what the person has said helps to ensure understanding and builds trust.
  • It's essential to be mindful of the interview structure and avoid getting stuck in a series of closed-ended questions.

The Therapeutic Alliance

  • According to Carl Rogers, a good therapeutic alliance involves empathy, congruence (genuineness), and unconditional positive regard.
  • A supportive and understanding therapist is essential for building trust and facilitating positive outcomes.
  • The therapeutic alliance is critical for providing a nurturing environment that is respectful, compassionate, and responsive to the individual's needs.
