Discussion is the stage, individuals or members of each side put forward the ideas about case as they see it, i.e. their understanding about the conditions. Key skills during this stage include questioninglistening and clarifying the issues created during discussion. Sometimes it is helpful to take notes during the discussion stage to record all points put forward in case there is need for further clarification easily by reading of these notes.  It is extremely important to listen, as when disagreement takes place it is easy to make the mistake of saying too much and listening too little which shows the importance of discussion.  Each side should have an equal opportunity to present their case according to their understandings.
