Communication With Care
In life you learn many skills, but rarely do you learn the best way to truly listen. In our world ye need to communicate non-judgementally with people to enable caring and respectful conversations. The ability to effectively communicate with a person who may be stressed, distressed or in crisis can be the key to providing the vital support need to help them cope through difficult times.
The Communication with Care workshops empower the participant to develop the core skills and a deeper understanding of how to identify, listen and support someone they are concerned about or may be in crisis. their facilitators work interactively to provide a safe environment for the participants to discuss and understand the triggers, signs, symptoms and the more common barriers that friends, family members or colleagues may be facing during a mental health crisis across a wide spectrum of disorders from panic attacks and depression to suicide. Participants learn how to connect, communicate and approach people confidently to ask the tricky and often deeper questions, building trust in their own ability to provide help.
