This workshop will focus on skill development to promote effective communication. A series of experiential exercises will be completed, followed by group discussion for reflective sharing. Role playing and corrective feedback techniques will permit participants to assess their communication skills and identify ways to enhance this core professional competency. Necessary prerequisites for optimal communication, such as self-awareness and mindfulness, will serve as the underpinnings for skill development.
