Being a listener on the phone for people in distress is neither a task nor a profession. It is a mission that puts another person in the foreground. The listener is there to listen and respond in a way that supports the co-speaker, conversation helps influence on the emotional discharge and raise awareness. Is he doing it for himself too? In addition to professionalism, integral care for yourself (physical, psychological and spiritual) is vital in order to perform his role well enough. It is important to concentrate on our own sources of power and powerlessness that can unexpectedly surprise us during the conversation. We all have these moments. Rare people are ready to lighten them up and become stronger. Regular unloading of burdens is a skill, caring for yourself is a responsibility. Please join us for creative research.
