Overview

Learn child-centred communication strategies to encourage children to talk

Communicating effectively with vulnerable children and young people is not always easy. Despite practitioners and carers knowing this is an important area of their work, research shows that practice is not always as effective as it could be.

This course will enable you to improve your communication skills through techniques which place the child at the heart of the interaction. You’ll examine why a child may become vulnerable and reflect upon the barriers to communication. You’ll also explore activities from pre-verbal to adolescent stages which encourage children to share their feelings.

The course is aimed at anyone working with vulnerable children and young people. It is also suited to foster carers keen to improve their communication skills.
