Building rapport and listening skills

Wednesday 28th November

This workshop is for anyone working directly with people with disability or older people. The workshop will cover information, tips and practical exercises for building and maintaining rapport with the people we support.  Participants will have the opportunity to learn active listening skills though practical exercises and explore their application through discussion of case studies.

Boundary setting and self-care

Wednesday 28th November

When we work one to one with someone, it’s important that we understand the boundaries of our role and how to communicate these boundaries to the people we work with. Sometimes it’s hard to say no, however it is vital for self-care and so we don’t overstep the responsibilities of our role or burn out.  In this workshop participants will have the opportunity to learn about how to set boundaries effectively, and information about how to recognise signs of burn out and undertake self-care to prevent it.
