Listening Skills

by Thomasine Howlett
(Gardena, California USA)

Hi Mike,

I grew up in Rockford, Illinois. My name is Thomasine Howlett and I left Rockford in 1992. I am 54 years old and graduated from Rock Valley College in Human Services. I am now studying to become an AOD (ALcohol and Other Drugs) Counselor. I live in the Torrance area but work at a non-profit in Venice, California where we train individuals with multiple barriers to employment skills to cook and then on to work. I see alot of people who want to skip the steps of recovery and anger management and go to work. "Not happening". Thanks for your great website! I need to write a paper on listening skills and I liked what you said about reflective listening....I'm going to write about this technique in the assignment.

So glad I found you. The next time I come to Rockford (I was there in April) maybe we could meet.
