Day 1 – Monday 23rd November 2020 – 10am-12pm (UK time)
Essential skills training – facilitated by Scottish Drugs Forum

Good empathic listening is fundamental in the helping relationship. Called accurate empathy by Carl Rogers (1965), it is the cornerstone for person-centred practice. It is essential for good communication. In this introductory session we practise refining empathic listening skills and address other core communication skills that are important in a supporting relationship. 
The aim of the session is to practise core communication skills with a focus on expressing accurate empathy through reflective listening.

By the end of session you will have:

  • Observed a demonstration of the interpersonal style and core communication skills used in a supporting relationship.
  • Practised the interpersonal style and primary core communication skills.

This workshop is for people who are interested in working in the field of social care.
