Description

Effective Communication with Children & Young People: Live training for Foster Carers & Social Workers

Good communication is central to working with children, young people, families and carers. It helps build trust and is key to establishing and maintaining relationships in the home. Communication is an active process that involves listening, questioning, understanding and responding. A crucial element of effective communication is to understand the stage of development and needs of the child or young person.

This training will explore the skills required to be an effective communicator by considering how different types of questions can be used to support the communication process.

Advanced Training

This option is aimed at an audience with prior knowledge of the subject and isn’t suitable for.  Those that are new to the subject would be better with our standard course.

Need more time?

We recognise that sometimes groups need more time for discussions and group work. This can mean that a two-hour session is just not long enough to explore the curriculum and engage in question and answer sessions. So we are you offering the opportunity to extend the session by an hour to allow your trainees the chance to explore the curriculum fully!
