Active Listening and Communication

with Leslye Noyes

Saturday, June 24th, 2017 from 10:00am-3:00pm


In this one-day intensive course, participants will deepen their caregiving skills through the study and practice of active listening and communication. The potential meaning and importance of a patient’s narrative will be explored through various cues such as breathing signatures, facial expressions, and how different feelings manifest in the body.

Learning to listen actively to what is in the moment, both verbally and non-verbally, allows us to communicate more deeply and directly when working with others. Through group learning and experiential exercises, caregivers will learn how to give full attention, allowing for greater presence, empathy and attunement.

By approaching our experience with curiosity and active listening, we offer a greater possibility of care, compassion and comfort, not only to others, but to ourselves.

This course is ideal for healthcare professionals such as nurses, social workers, physicians, therapists, hospice workers and all those in caregiving fields.

5 Continuing Education Credits (CE’s) are available for Nurses and Social Workers. An additional certificate fee of $25 will apply in addition to the registration fee.
