Appreciating Unconscious Influences to Foster Better Personal and Clinical Dialogue

This webinar will provide tools to:

  • Identify conscious and unconscious responses in professional, client and family interaction
  • Become aware of potential triggering topics and understand power source of subject
  • Create strategies to effectively guide difficult conversation by depersonalizing responses and reframing content

Healthcare and Social work require navigating challenging conversational topics. Using self-awareness and compassion to understand what makes topics or conversations difficult, one is able to improve effective communication and dialogue even on particularly challenging subjects.

That which is difficult may also be what is essential in fostering good mental and physical health. Unfortunately, our emotions or history can get in the way of successfully and objectively addressing challenging topics, both from the perspective of the treating professional as well as the personal perspective of a consumer or colleague. This webinar is designed to help participants consider factors in their own lives that may hinder objectivity or to identify them in the people with whom we communicate every day in order to successfully navigate or reframe any discussion.
