On July 23-24 and on September 10-11, The REACH Institute will offer our course in effective communication, Working with Challenging Patients and Families.
Designed for primary care providers and mental health professionals, this 2-day course offers experiential training to enhance providers’ communication skills - the skills that build trust and engagement. After practicing the techniques taught in this course, providers will be better equipped to enlist families as partners in their child's care.
The method was developed by Marjorie Heymann, PhD, psychologist and former theater director. She teaches practitioners the strategies actors use to get inside their characters and react in the moment to other characters in a scene.
Here's what past attendees have said:
- "I have used Marjorie Heymann's training for 15 years in many areas of my work.... It helps professionals from many different disciplines and different educational backgrounds, as well as parents, learn how to listen deeply and engage meaningfully with each other."
- "Marjorie’s experiential method is a revolutionary and highly effective way of learning how to really hear, empathize with, and understand our clients."
This course is a phenomenal value at only $200 for 12 hours of training. Continuing medical education credits are available.
