In order to be an effective counselor, we must learn how to have meaningful interactions with
individuals and be able to hear and discuss any topic. The art of listening is imperative, and this
assignment gives you the opportunity to intently listen to another individual, digest information
that may be sensitive, interpret non-verbal communication, mood, etc. You also have the
opportunity to reflect with the individual and ask more questions that may naturally arise. The
interview is practice for you not to impose your own opinions or judgements prematurely but
maintain an unbiased, subjective point of view listening, and asking clarifying questions while
applying insights and prior learning.

person/couple that currently classifies themselves as the following:
● Divorced and Remarried

is not merely a list of answers, but a well thought out, organized summary of your
After your summary, conclude by reflecting upon and analyzing the interviewee’s
statements/experiences to identify a common theme within the interview (i.e. loss,
miscommunication, loneliness, perseverance, faith, etc.) explaining how and why you
chose this theme. Include Biblical support.
Reaction Page-The last, FULL page of your paper will consist of your reaction to the
