Solution-Focused Communication for Families – The Fundamentals
This series of workshops are exclusively designed for Families and Caregivers to learn the fundamental principles and skills of solution-focused communication. Solution-focused communication focuses on strengths and resources, using simple principles and skills that redirect our attention away from the problem, toward what’s already working. Our best hopes for this series is to increase traits like autonomy, confidence and competence and providing a framework for managing difficult and challenging conversations.
In the initial and mandatory workshop (1.5 hours), participants will learn the fundamental principles and skills of solution-focused communication, through a number of fun activities, collaborative conversations and group work. By the end of the workshop, participants will have had the opportunity to experience a number of solution-focused conversations in various roles – as well as, a number of practical take-home communication tools.
This workshop is a prerequisite for upcoming workshops :
Reframing & Goal Setting (Next Offering July 27th): Participants will learn to re-frame their child’s behaviours and thought processes in a manner that amplifies positive development.
Self Care: Continued enhancement of solution-focused communication skills with an emphasis on self-care. Topics include: positive self-talk, controlling rumination, finding peace and personal wisdom.
Advocacy: Participants will learn how to more effectively advocate for their child, using solution- focused communication principles.
Conflict Reconciliation: Participants will learn how to manage conflict in ways that emphasize mindfulness, strengths and resources, dignity and respect.
