Remember to mark your calendars for this Thursday, April 10 at 11:00 am EDT, as the Military Caregiving concentration hosts a professional development webinar on caregiver communication skills.
Preparing Caregivers to Communicate Effectively Using Three Types of Communication Skills will focus on preparing caregivers to have those difficult conversations with a variety of individuals, including military professionals. The presenter, Mary Brintnall-Peterson, Ph.D., will help caregivers and professionals:
- Distinguish between the communication skills of “I messages”, Assertive, and Aikido and the types of situations they are best used in.
- Identify caregiver situations where professionals could use one of the communication styles.
- Prepare to use one of the communication skills.
