Active listening is a commitment and practice to listen non-judgmentally to what a person is saying. The practice includes repeating, restating, rephrasing, pausing, recapitulating in order to communicate to the conversation partner that they are truly being seen, heard, listened to, and understood. The aim of active listening is (i) to understand the speaker's message from the speaker's point of view by actively minimizing assumptions, guarding against cognitive bias, and avoiding overlaying the listener's expectations onto the speaker. Such active listening practices are enacted so (ii) that both parties (acting as speaker and listener) have the opportunity to be seen, heard, listened to, and understood.
