Have you ever had those visits where you wish you had said something differently?

Do you often wonder how to ask a hard question and answer when a parent asks a hard question?

What about those times when you may be frustrated and wish that you could communicate with the family more affectively?

Let’s get together and work through some of these situations. Finding ways to reframe or rephrase things we want to say is an important skill and takes practice.

Join us as we all practice together.

Learning Objectives:

  • Recognize how our priorities may not align with families
  • Explore various ways to gather information from families
  • Compare and contrast sample questions/statements
