Advanced Communication Skills
Engage, motivate and be listened to.

Teacher training and training given to other multi-agency services involves communication skills. This session will take those skills and amplify them to a higher level of ability. Learn how to improve engagement, raise motivation to change behaviour and decrease the odds of argument and non-compliance.

Introducing techniques and skills based on the Motivational Interviewing (MI) approach. MI established itself as a leading approach when working one-to-one with people suffering from addiction, but it is now recognised as an extremely powerful  approach across all areas of engagement, motivation and behaviour change.

Anyone working frontline, communicating in a one-to-one setting, will benefit from this training session.

This session will give you an understanding that will change how you engage and interact with teens.
