Why Camps Hire Dr. Chris

Hey Dr. Thurber! I am a counselor at Camp Timberlane and I attended your workshop on listening last summer. I found it helpful at the time, but I didn’t fully understand the magnitude of the “active listening” strategy until I used it last night with a friend of mine. She appreciated being understood and was able to come up with solutions to her problem on her own, as you predicted. (I would have handled it way differently before I attended your workshop.) After I listened without interrupting, I summarized back what she was saying to make sure that I understood. She was surprised that someone actually, fully listened to what she was saying! That was really special and I wanted to thank you for your help last summer at camp and especially for what happened last night. Thank you so so much and I look forward to seeing you again!
