Strategies to enhance awareness and acknowledgement

Awareness and acknowledgment is the ability to understand and validate the other person's feelings without necessarily agreeing with them.

Once you have a sense of how someone is feeling, you need to acknowledge their feelings. Acknowledgment does not equal agreement; it means that you are recognizing the other person's position and empathizing with it. By doing so, you show that you are sensitive to how they feel and you value their feelings.
