6. Hearing our voice: barriers to communication and feeling judged (part 2)

In this episode we hear from Stuart Dearborn, Coordinator for the Dorset Branch of the Footprints Project, a mentorship organisation supporting people in contact with the criminal justice system in the South of England.  He talks to Prof Sarah Hean from University Stavanger, Norway about the importance for his mentors that they be aware of how feeling judged affects the way we communicate with clients.

This COLAB consortium is a partnership of criminal justice related organisations and academic institutions from Norway, UK, Denmark, Switzerland, Finland and the Netherlands.  The consortium was funded by the Marie Curie Sklodowska EU programme of Horizon2020. Much of the work of our consortium was based in Norway and therefore some of our podcast episodes are in Norwegian language.  However, because of the international nature of the COLAB consortium, much of the series is in  English. The Podcast series is funded by the Norwegian Research Council FORSTERK programme and produced by the University of Stavanger (COLAB FORSTERK 2021-2023).
