LEAD response to COVID-19. This workshop has been postponed. we will update the new date after the reassessment of the current situation.

As a frontline worker, do you often find it difficult to
engage with resistant clients?

And no matter what you say or do – you get a lot of
“I don’t know” responses from them?

This one-day workshop will help you engage and maintain relationships with resistant and mandated clients.

You will explore the basics of neuroscience and the influence of clients’ backgrounds, life experiences, values and beliefs in what causes them to resist interventions; build your skills and confidence in holding difficult conversations and take some time to understand the role and influence you have with your clients.

Workshop Outcomes:

  • Increased understanding of what causes clients to resist
  •  Increased confidence and skills in holding difficult conversations, and
  •  Increased understanding into what we bring as workers into our
    interactions with clients.

Who should attend this workshop?
