    Moving Toward Inclusive Practice – Asking Questions

    https://militaryfamilieslearningnetwork.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/12/4_Asking-Questions.mp3
    About this Episode
    How do we as helping professionals ask questions when we don’t always get information back from people that may be relevant to helping others in a cultural context?  In this episode we hear how if we don’t ask everyone the question, we may be missing someone and may be missing how we can serve them. Anne Phibbs gives the listener examples of when a well-placed question can go a long way, and in the questioning we can create inclusion.
    As you listen to this episode, “Asking Questions” think about the following:
    Why do we get scared to ask questions?
    What is best practice when we check in with someone?
    What is magic thinking?
    Are helping professionals able to tell a well-meaning question from one with judgment behind it?

    Moving Toward Inclusive Practice – Listening

    Moving Toward Inclusive Practice – Listening

    https://militaryfamilieslearningnetwork.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/11/3_Listening.mp3
    About this Episode
    In this episode we hear about listening as “attending”, and the difference from “sympathy”. Through stories and conversation, Dr. Phibbs shares that in an oppressive system we need to create the space and let people know that you are trustworthy.  Everyone has a deep complex story and no one can take away your story, and in slowing down, and being present, we build authenticity.
    As you listen to this episode, “Listening” think about the following questions:
    What does it mean to “attend” and listen, and listen deeply?
    Can we listen deeply enough so we can pick up even beyond what is being said?  Are there ways that we can practice that?
    How do you listen for values? (an exercise will be shared)
    What’s the stuff I never wanted to look at?

    Moving Toward Inclusive Practice- Seeking out Stories

    Moving Toward Inclusive Practice- Seeking out Stories

    https://militaryfamilieslearningnetwork.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/1_Seeking-Out-Stories.mp3
    About this Episode
    In this episode, Dr. Phibbs discusses the sphere of seeking out stories as we move toward inclusive practice.  Through her research, sharing stories and examples, she guides the listener to  see why cultural competence is important for helping professionals.  Dr. Phibbs  asks the listener to think about “What are the stories I tell myself?”,  to help us understand how we internalize stories.
    As you listen to the first episode, “Seeking out Stories”, think about the following questions:
    How do we start these conversations with other people?  How do we have these conversations with our staff?  How do we bring stories “into our own”?
