Empowering Conversations

This 1-day Empowering Conversations workshop will provide you with an in-depth understanding of empowerment and the effective strategies to empower and build rapport with emotionally complex clients.

There are 4 modules for the workshop, each taking the participant from understanding what empowerment is, the current difficulties faced by health professionals, to effective strategies that can be utilised.

This workshop discusses the role of trust, belief, and resilience in empowering someone, and combines key counselling strategies with effective negotiation strategies to empower clients, and, ensure greater rehab adherence.   It goes FAR BEYOND motivational interviewing and open-ended questions.
