To support practitioners achieving open communications with parents particularly when sensitive information needs to be delivered or shared, FCCC has engaged Trisha Curtis, Speech & Language Therapist with Trinity College to deliver a workshop focussing on 'Sharing Sensitive News'.
This workshop is aimed at Early Years practitioners who need a system to talk to parents about concerns they may have about a child in their care. Your concerns may be about safeguarding issues, welfare, additional supports, wellbeing etc.
Delivering sensitive news to parents is something that all practitioners will need to do at some time. The way you communicate sensitive information can have a direct impact on how the receiver perceives and reacts to the situation. This workshop will help practitioners to apply effective communication strategies.
Delivering sensitive news well can actually strengthen your relationship with parents. Therefore, it's definitely worth learning how to di it successfully!
- Gain an understanding of how parents feel when they receive or need to convey sensitive news
- Become more aware of their own feelings and response styles around sharing sensitive news
- Learn about and apply effective communication strategies for sharing sensitive news
- Discuss challenging case studies and scenarios with other professionals.
