Safe Conversations

This event is currently full. However you can register now and get added to a waiting list. You will be notified if spaces become available.
This workshop will explore safe conversation topics, helping you to identify ways to get to know and engage with your client without making them or yourself uncomfortable or upset.

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.

This training is FREE for all volunteers working or living in Penrith, Hawkesbury, Blue Mountains, Parramatta, Blacktown, Cumberland and The Hills Local Government Areas.
