The ABMP Podcast with Dr. Kerry Mitchell

What does successful client communication look like? It involves active listening, foregoing judgment and assumptions, and clear direction.

In this podcast, you’ll learn about:

  • General successful communication strategies
  • Each participant’s role when communicating  
  • Challenging communication experiences
  • Altering the way we communicate during COVID-19
  • Electronic communication vs. in-person communication

When asked about what to do when someone is negatively triggered by something during a conversation, Dr. Mitchell suggests the first thing to do is listen. “Let people talk,” Mitchell says. “In conflict management, the first thing we always say is that people need to vent to get emotion out. Once we get that out, then we can sit back and be calm. Then, come back and say, ‘Maybe there was a miscommunication,’ or ‘It seems like maybe my meaning wasn’t clear.’ And then you start that discussion, but let that first piece happen, even though it’s somewhat hard.”
