Volunteer Training: Accidental Counselling & Communicating with Others
19 March 2018, 9.00am–3.30pm
Thompson Hall, 92 Seven Hills Rd, Baulkham Hills

Cost: Free for all volunteers working or living in Penrith, Hawkesbury, Blue Mountains, Parramatta, Blacktown, Cumberland and The Hills Local Government Areas.

It is a volunteers’ nature to want to lend a helping hand when they can, and often situations arise where a volunteer might be called on for guidance or a listening ear.

But how do you provide support and ensure your own wellbeing when a client, fellow volunteer or friend is dealing with a complicated or difficult situation?

This course is designed to provide you with the confidence to effectively communicate with others, and the tools to provide support and comfort without being drawn into a situation yourself.

You will learn how to:

  • Empathise with others, without becoming personally invested in a situation.
  • Actively listen to those around you.
  • Support someone to come to their own conclusion or solution without providing advice.
  • Effectively use positive communication to engage and converse with others.
  • Protect yourself and support your own wellbeing.
