The Basic Steps

Marsha Linehan has come up with a comprehensive, six-step model of validation that we can use when listening to others. Each step in this model relies on the previous one. One can’t jump from step 1 to step 6; they must follow each step in the same order to validate someone in the best, most reassuring way possible.
