Example text

People have told us that one of the ways they know we are listening to them is because we use their own language back to them. It seems important for the worker to be able to pick up on the terms used by the person and to adjust their own language to suit that of the person. The language used by the worker will convey hope and the expectation that positive changes will occur – indeed, have already occurred. The worker will also use language to rephrase things the person has said, for example: M: I don’t think things will ever change.

M: Don’t know. V: Well…would you get up at the same time, if you had the best dad in the world? M: Yeah…yeah…that wouldn’t change. V: Would you get dressed and washed just the same? M: Yeah…I guess so… I would still have breakfast by myself though. V: OK…so what would be the first thing that would tell you your dad had changed? M: Well…maybe we could just ride our bikes around the streets instead of going to the gym and riding on those bikes that don’t actually go anywhere. That would be better.

M: Oh…now you’re asking…a…seven. V: Seven! Yahoo! That’s very confident! What gives you such confidence?! So in this example, scales are used both for indicating a ‘good’ parent and for confidence in Mike’s stated aim. As often happens, a secondary gain of using scales is more clarity in the aims of the work. In Mike’s case, he decided that if he felt they weren’t picking on him he would feel better, whereas before he wanted them to actually not pick on him. The worker’s attention to language use would be important to highlight this difference to him.
