Consultation module: Sounding Board
By using Sounding Board, the Consultants provide personal feedback to the Case Presenter. They express feelings, perceptions and impressions which they felt when they had been listening to the case presentation. They do not focus on solutions, ideas or pieces of advice, but rather on their emotional and mental reaction to the case presentation.
This kind of feedback could help the Case Presenter to work out different facets of the case. He/she often obtains sympathy and solidarity as valuable support for his/her position.
The Consultants are asked to formulate their feedback very carefully. They should be aware of the fact that they are expressing their personal, and therefore subjective perspective.
