The positive language I used let my team know that I was willing to work and help. Positive language was also helpful when giving constructive criticism to other students as it encourages rather than demotivates. Following this, I reduced my use of negative language when working within the team as it could have lowered motivation and made them not want to work with me. When listening to my team members I made sure to show active engagement by nodding, this let them know that I was listening and paying attention to what they are saying. Asking both open and closed questions allowed different responses suitable for different situations; open questions allowed for a discussion whereas closed questions encourage definite, concise responses and decisions.
That is why I think before I speak because I do not like hurting people’s feelings. *I have used this skill when I was listening to a friend talk about her problems, instead of judging her for what she is going through I thought of support words that will get her mind off the bad things. * Social workers always have to think about what is better for their clients.
As I continue to role play I am becoming more comfortable with the process. I did not experience any difficulties this week. Moreover, I did not have supervision this week because my supervisor was on vacation. However, I did learn plenty of information from the social worker I met with this week.
The Questionnaire included categories similar to Tuckman’s five-stage model. The results show that group size is linked with group development and productivity. The smaller the group, the more successful groups will be in attaining group goals because, members will feel a sense of comfort when contributing to the group goals and members can also connect with each other on a personal level that will increase group
According to Todorov we do not all become bruits when life becomes ugly. We do not all place our selves before others. I find myself partially agreeing with this statement. Yes I agree that we do not all become bruits when life gets ugly, however, some of us are simply bruits, not just when life gets ugly but all the time.
A way to help with this and achieve a sense of safety within the environment is to establish set roles. Establish roles and lines of authority so that boundaries are set and no one feels the need to disrespect one another. It looks as though a lot of arguing may come from lack of respect between people in the group along with lack of understanding. Having and respecting roles is key when it comes to: A clearer expectation of how decisions are going to be
Sometimes also being quiet is preferable. A good listener will make a good judgment. Listening skills also interoperates with verbal and non verbal communications which helps to receive messages sent by other people.

Perception Checking Well today most commonly people have a good communication with others. However some are not because they don 't give themselves changes to communication with people. Perception Checking is a great tool that everyone use to help you understand what they are trying to say before jumping into the conclusions. We need to be friendly and outgoing to others so their feeling won 't left out.
Listening breaks down the barriers between individuals by paving the way for mutual understanding and cooperation. Good listening prevents communication gap and facilitates a fair grasp of the objectives and priorities of individuals and institutions.

His motto became, “Don’t fight, make it right, talk it out.” Sometimes friends may have difficulty expressing their true feelings in situations or circumstances that may arise in their lives. The key is to express it verbally and calmly. Talk things out with friends, family or whoever it may be and come to an understanding together about any matter. You will find it is a lot easier than fighting.
My partner has become more open about expressing herself and confronting me about things that bother her. For example, I was not aware for quite some time that she did not like it when I directed attention towards her when we went to social gatherings. I had always made an effort to involve her in conversations because I didn’t want her to feel left out. My partner, however, felt that I was being inconsiderate of her social anxiety, which I was not aware of early on in our relationship. Rather than telling me right, she kept it to herself and built it a lot of resentment towards me.
My five signature themes were: Achiever-Â As an Achiever, â€œNo matter how much you may feel you deserve a day of rest, if the day passes without some form of achievement, no matter how small, you will feel dissatisfied.â€ Sometimes people call me an overachiever, but that is how I feel is my normal. Harmony- I do not like when people argue because I feel there is a better way for everyone to get along. Once everyone is in harmony, life is much smoother. Input-
I expected opening up to make me feel vulnerable or scared. Instead I felt more empowered than I had before. Talking through what happened made me realize the amount of love and support I had all along even though I felt so alone. This helped me to become less isolated, understanding that all those things my friends and family did was because they truly cared about me; not because they pitied me or felt burdened. Recreating one’s traumatic experience can be tremendously intimidating, but in a calming environment with someone trustworthy it becomes easier
People do not want to be surrounded by negativity, so simply try and look at the positive side of every situation. Reflective At the end of a lesson or day, I like to reflect on things I did well and things I didn’t do well on. By doing this it helps me to pick apart what was good and what wasn’t, so that I can better myself in the future. I enjoyed getting reflections back from both my cooperating teacher and supervisor.
