This might be you…

A client has strong political views that I disagree with. I don’t want to argue, so how do I respond?

On home visits there are sometimes long awkward silences with a client. How do I start a conversation?

This workshop will explore safe conversations, helping you to engage with clients whose life experiences, interests and viewpoints might be very different from yours!

Through this workshop you will learn:

  • Safe topics to use when making conversation with a client
  • How to redirect a conversation that has become uncomfortable for you or your client
  • Skills of listening and tolerance so that you can explore topics even when there is disagreement
  • Develop conversation skills that will help you in your everyday life as well as volunteering with clients.
