Event description

Description

This workshop provides 3 CE hours for social workers approved by NYS (provider #0270)

The success of important ideas and information to produce and sustain learning and change turns on how effectively they are communicated. Emotional connection, the ability to sense and understand one another, and mental agility are essential to effective communication, especially in today's often intense and demanding social environments. There are remarkable tools for fine-tuning these skills available through Applied Improvisation, which build upon our existing toolkit, can be deployed in practice and are useful for clients and students to learn and apply in their lives. This workshop will explore the intersection of head and heart to reduce confusion, friction and misunderstanding.

Workshop objectives:

Identify the 5 core elements of effective communication;

Understand the intersection of empathy and logic in communicating ideas and information to others;

Learn techniques that strengthen the capacity to see and hear others more clearly;

Learn techniques that enhance understanding between people and can be deployed in practice with clients and students;
