Listening in Human Services
How many times have you either asked or been asked, “Are you listening?” While we might think we know what it means to be an effective listener, different skills are needed to suit different situations. In the human services field, listening is a multi-faceted task that must take into account the needs of the client and the situation being addressed.
In this first discussion, you will consider a range of listening skills and how they may be used in a human services setting. Specifically, you will identify active listening skills used within interpersonal and group settings.
The Interpersonal Communication Book; DeVito, J. A. (2016). The interpersonal communication book (14th ed.) CHAPTER 6 review the five human service career paths from Human Service CareersLinks to an external site. provided by Films on Demand:
Early Child Development & Services (03:01)
Counseling and Mental Health Services (04:17)
Family & Community Services (07:00)
Personal Care Services (03:54)
Consumer Services (04:11)

Consider the stages and skills associated with effective listening and reflect on the essential responsibilities associated with one human service career path.
Initial Post: Prepare a 300-word minimum reply that sufficiently addresses each of the items below. Don’t forget that it is critical to cite your sources of information, using APA formatting.
What listening styles: (EXAMPLES PLEASE CHOOSE; Empathic and Objective Listening, Nonjudgmental and Critical Listening, Surface and Depth Listening, Polite and Impolite Listening, Active and Inactive Listening, ) might this particular professional use in their work with clients, and how might they use them?
Identify active listening skills; (specifically, the three techniques of active listening SEE BELOW:
1. PARAPHASE THE SPEAKER’S MEANING: the speaker. This is especially important in online communication, where you don’t generally have visual cues that help explain the nuances of meaning. Paraphrasing gives the speaker a chance to extend what was originally said. Thus, when Suzanne echoes your thoughts, you’re given the opportunity to elaborate on why rewriting the budget report means so much to you. In paraphrasing, be objective; be especially careful not to lead the speaker in the direction you think he or she should go. Also, be careful that you don’t overdo paraphrase; only a very small percentage of statements need paraphrasing. Paraphrase when you feel there’s a chance for misunderstanding or when you want to express support for the other person and keep the conversation going.
2. EXPRESS UNDERSTANDING OF THE SPEAKER’S FEELINGS: Echo the feelings the speaker expressed or implied (“You must have felt horrible.”). This expression of empathy will help you further check your perception of the speaker’s feelings. This will also allow the speaker to see his or her feelings more objectively (especially helpful when they’re feelings of anger, hurt, or depression) and to elaborate on them.
3. ASK QUESTIONS: Asking questions ensures your own understanding of the speaker’s thoughts and feelings and secures additional information (“How did you feel when you read your job appraisal report?”). Ask questions to provide just enough stimulation and support for the speaker to feel he or she can elaborate on these thoughts and feelings. These questions should further confirm your interest and concern for the speaker but not pry into unrelated areas or challenge the speaker in any way. that the professional would apply in both interpersonal and group settings (e.g., one-on-one client interaction, facilitating a group session, etc.).
Stating in your own words what you think the speaker means and feels helps ensure understanding and also shows interest in
Describe how and why they would be used.
Using the Basic Counseling SkillsLinks; Basic Counseling SkillsLinks to an external site. (http://www.basic-counseling-skills.com/) to an external site. website,
identify two to three interviewing skills, other than active listening, that the professional would apply in both interpersonal and group settings (e.g., one-on-one client interaction,
facilitating a group session, etc.). Describe how and why they would be used.
Active listening, then, is not merely repeating the speaker’s exact words but rather putting together into some meaningful whole your understanding of the speaker’s total message. And incidentally, when combined with empathic listening, it proves the most effective mode for success as a salesperson (Comer & Drollinger, 1999).
As noted earlier, listening styles need to be adjusted to the specific situation. Understanding the nature and skills of these styles should help you make more reasoned and more effective listening choices

Ethics

For example: as aristotle states in book ii, section 1 of the nicomachean ethics, “legislators make the citizens good by forming habits in them.”

Put things in your own words unless the question asks for a direct quote. Answer each question in 8-12 sentences.
1. How does Aristotle describe the relation between virtue and pleasure? Give and explain one direct quote from the reading as part of your response.
2. Think of a famous person (politician, celebrity, athlete, etc.). Describe one recommendation from Aristotle’s account of virtue and explain in detail whether this person follows Aristotle’s advice. Include a direct quote from Aristotle as part of your answer.
3. Think of the same famous person. Describe one recommendation from Confucius’ account of virtue and explain in detail whether this person follows Confucius’ advice. Include a direct quote from Confucius as part of your answer.
Quoting from Aristotle and Confucius: In APA style, there are special rules for quoting from “major classical works,” such as those of Aristotle and Confucius. For these, we do not use dates (since it hard to pinpoint the exact date) or page or paragraph numbers. Instead, use quotation marks for quoted text, state the title and author, and indicate the book and section (for Aristotle) or the part (for Confucius).
For example: As Aristotle states in book II, section 1 of the Nicomachean Ethics, “legislators make the citizens good by forming habits in them.”

Setting and Context
Today’s romantic love tradition stems from the great art and courtly love, or chivalry, culture created in the south of France by troubadours that arose around the time of first Crusades, from the 1100s into almost 1300s.

Troubadour Music and Bernart de Ventadorn
Music of troubadours is the only secular repertoire we have remaining from the Middle Ages. Troubadours were knights, aristocratic poets, composers and performers who used vernacular (local language) in their art, not Latin language of the
church.
Bernart de Ventadorn (c. 1130- c. 1200), Troubadour song, “Can vei la”

additional performance (Emmanuel Bouquey)
About Bernart de Ventadorn:
GW1 – Bernart de Ventadorn (15:30)

Text translation (first two stanzas):
When I see the lark beat his wings for joy against the sun’s ray
,until he forgets to fly and plummets down,
for the sheer delight which goes to his heart,
alas, great envy comes to me of those whom I see filled with happiness,
and I marvel that my heart does not instantly melt from desire.
Alas, I thought I knew so much about love,
and really I know so little,
for I cannot keep myself from loving her from whom I shall have no favor.
She has stolen from me my heart, myself, herself,
and all the world.When she took herself from me,
she left me nothing but desire and a longing heart.
Text:
Cuando veo a la alondra mover
de alegría sus alas contra el rayo de sol,
y se desvanece y se deja caer
por la dulzura que le llega al corazón,
¡ay!, me entra una envidia tan grande
de cualquiera que vea gozoso,
que me maravillo de que al momento
el corazón no se funda de deseo.
¡Ay de mi!, creía saber mucho
de amor,
¡y sé tan poco!,
pues no me puedo abstener de amar
a aquella de quien nunca obtendré
ventaja.
Me ha robado el corazón, me ha
robado a mí,
y a sí misma y a todo el mundo;
y cuando me privó de ella no me dejó
nada más que deseo y corazón
anheloso.
Important elements of the troubadour songs:
– unattainable lady
– melody and lute accompaniment

Setting
Both amateur and professional musicians participated in creating music for secular occasions usually connected to social events and court entertainment. Secular Renaissance music included music for voice and instrumental accompaniment as well as purely instrumental music for listening and dances. A popular instrument in prosperous homes of the time was lute as can be seen in a Lute Player painting by Caravaggio below. Women began to play an important part in music performances at home and at court. At the end of the sixteenth century in Italy we know of many great professional women singers.
Caravaggio, The Lute Player (1596)
A new genre of madrigal becomes popular in Italy and quickly spreads to England. Using secular text, composers of madrigal would set it to music in such a way as to reflect the words by music or highlight certain parts of text or certain words musically. Madrigals were written in imitative style for four – six parts, one voice per part, so performance of madrigals requires well trained singers.
John Farmer, Fair Phyllis
John Farmer (c. 1570-1603), an Irish composer from Dublin who worked at Christ Church as organist and teaching choirboys, wrote a book of four part madrigals that he published in London when he moved there in 1599.
In this madrigal we find a story of shepherdess Phyllis and shepherd Amyntas who lightheartedly are engaged in a love pursuit.
Listen to Fair Phyllis madrigal while noting words that are emphasized in some way by musical means:
All alone (one voice active)
Up and down (moving voices up and down)
Such devices when music literally portrays the words is called word painting, a distinctive feature of madrigals.
Note how imitative sections are contrasted with homophonic (or chordal) when all voices sing together (“O, then they fell a kissing”).
Listen to the instrumental piece from the Spanish royal court:

Understand the core diagram.

understand the Core Diagram. For this assignment, you are going to create a core diagram, and your target business is the University of Memphis. Demonstrate your knowledge of core diagram functionality along with your knowledge of how the University Enterprise Architecture works to show me the system in a single-page detailed graphic of the users, processes, data, and connectivity.
In addition to the core diagram, I want you to specify the operating model upon which the University Enterprise Architecture is based, and justify your choice through informed discussion and analysis. Your justification should be at least 400 words. Because interpretations can and will vary, I am not looking for a correct answer. I’m only concerned that you justify your choice.
When creating your diagram and justification document, keep in mind what the primary business processes and supporting applications are and how they communicate with each other. Some key systems include:
Enterprise Resource Planning portal (also known as MyMemphis)
Enterprise Web hosting, including eLearn
Microsoft 365 Apps (formally known as Office 365) email and OneDrive.
These operate both on and off campus, which you must take into account in your core diagram. Map the data flow for the key systems, users, and processes in the Core Diagram modality (see the EA Worksheet), demonstrating the architecture in use, as you see it or understand it. Key users of business processes include students in class and labs, professors in offices and classes, and staff in offices.
Enumerate the different users and the different sources of data (professor, student, administrator would be the users, figure out the data sources from the function and location of the key systems, as discussed in class). Draw lines in your architecture map to show how data moves between the application, its associated data store and the related user interface (desktop computer of the user would be the typical interface).
