When you don’t know what to say (Feb)

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 one-day course aims to equip people with some basic skills to enable those difficult conversations to take place. We want to help people to have effective, productive conversations, whilst recognising the emotions that are involved. 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’.

What will I learn?

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

This session is open to EVERYONE including members of the public, patients, families, supporters and volunteers as well as health and social care professionals
