This accessible guide helps school staff members with the difficult issue of how to effectively listen and respond to pupils and staff in need of support. It covers questions such as 'what if I don't know what to say?', 'what if I don't have time?' and 'what about confidentiality?', as well as helping with issues such as bullying and self-harm.

How do you listen effectively when you're already late for a meeting? How do you respond to a girl who's so angry that she's threatening to hit someone? Or to a boy who feels like giving up altogether? How do you listen, not only to students, but also to parents and to colleagues?

Whatever your role in school, listening will be at the heart of what you do. Your school will be measured, in part, by the quality of its daily relationships and those relationships will depend on how confidently people are able to listen to each other. This book answers all the difficult questions about how to listen, what to say, confidentiality and more. Helping with particular issues such as bullying, relationship difficulties, depression and self-harm is also covered.

With over 35 years' experience in a variety of school roles, Nick Luxmoore offers practical, realistic answers, advice and guidance. This book will be essential reading for teachers and non-teachers alike.

1. Introduction. 2. Yes, but. There's never enough time! What if I'm not the right person to help? As a listener, what exactly am I trying to achieve? How do I show that I understand? What if I can't help? What if I get upset myself? As a listener, what exactly do I say? What if I don't know what to say? What if someone asks for advice? Should I talk about my own experiences? Is it okay to hug a person? What if I don't like someone? What if they get angry with me? What if someone doesn't want to talk? What if they can't say what they feel? What about confidentiality? What if someone just wants attention? What if they're really clingy? 3. Helping people. Who are struggling with family relationships. Who need to talk about death. Who are stubborn.
