    Default Social Work/Counselling assignment..

    I thought I'd never do this, but I am desperate.
    I have been suffering form the most horrendous morning sickness and fallen completely behind in Uni.
    I have a 750 word essay, due....today. It's the last day of my extension and my brain is just a giant ball of mush.
    It's for my counselling unit on the following topic.
    Anyone have any ideas they'd liked to contribute! I'd be enternally grateful.

    “The word ‘listen’ is an anagram for ‘silent’. You need to still your inner voice, the one that drifts away with all your unspoken thoughts, as well as your voice that everyone hears out loud”.

    Discuss, demonstrating critical, self-reflection to examine the ways your inner voice distracts you from listening. Discuss how you might still your thoughts and silence your voice to provide space for someone to tell you their story.

    Look up mindfulness if you aren't already familiar. It's a way of living presently and letting your thoughts come and go. You could make this the focus of the essay as the strategy??

    I would talk about the importance of being non judgmental and how counterproductive it can be when trying to help another person in a time of weakness in their life. About how helping someone isn't only about saying the right thing, and inner opinions and judgments cant often be spotted through non verbal communication, gesture, facial expressions etc.
