AcknowledgmentWhile Talking and Communicating.
You are talking to a friend. He tells you a long story containing many itemsthat you don’t agree with. What do you do?
Often when your child, lover/partner, or friend tells you a story or voices acomplaint, he/she is just asking for acknowledgment.
This does not mean that he/she wants agreement or compliance; it merelyindicates a desire to be heard and understood. He is really talking to be understood.
Try these three steps to acknowledgment:
1. Repeat Back
2. Don’t Invalidate
3. Don’t Try to Change
Many conflicts in your personal relationships can be avoided if you will take the time to acknowledge other’s feelings and points of view. In fact, understanding is what talking is all about in this (and many) case.
