A Contingency Framework for Listening to the Dying
Vora, Erika; Vora, Ariana
International Journal of Listening, v22 n1 p59-72 2008
Listening to the dying poses special challenges. This paper proposes a contingency framework for describing and assessing various circumstances when listening to the dying. It identifies current approaches to listening, applies the contingency framework toward effectively listening to the dying, and proposes a new type of listening called perspective-taking listening. The framework provides guidance in how to improve listening to a dying person. (Contains 1 figure.)
