Data: Our next data session will be lead by Dr. Chris Pudlinski. The data is from a collection of peer support warm lines calls. The current research interest is moments of extended silence within these calls. There are four different environments in which multiple longer silences occur: difficult/emotional topics; caller reluctance to share “bad” news; call taker as “active” listener; and call taker as “inattentive” listener. The audio data is of “inattentive” listening. This is the most problematic of these environments, one in which extended conspicuous lapses occur where call taker response is clearly expected.
