Virtual Study Session – When You Don’t Know What To Say

St Catherine’s Hospice Knowledge Exchange Team have developed new Interactive Training sessions in order to continue providing a programme of high quality education.

It’s good to talk – but what happens when the topic is too tricky or the subject too sensitive?

It’s often easier to shut down and avoid opening up about what is really bothering us for fear of what the consequences of laying ourselves bare might be. This study session aims to enable those difficult conversations to take place.

By offering some prompts and guidance, we hope it will help people to support relatives, friends and neighbours who may be going through a dark or difficult time and ensure people no longer look back with regret and think ‘I just didn’t know what to say’.

Covering

  • Why conversations might be difficult
  • Recognising the emotions involved
  • Basic conversation skills
  • Listening skills
  • Techniques for talking

Audience: Carers, Family Members

This session will be delivered ONLINE by St Catherine’s Hospice. You would need to have access to a computer or mobile device with internet connection, a webcam and a microphone. Please note attendees must log into the event via the invite received from St Catherine’s Hospice 15 minutes before the start.
