Workshop for nurses: Master the Tango of Listening

Posted by paulandrew

I’m very pleased to announce that I’ll be offering an evening workshop, Master the Tango of Listening, on Thursday, October 8th, 2009, through the Stanford Center for Education and Professional Development.

This 2.5 hour workshop will be designed specifically for nurses, and participants will receive BRN Continuing Education credits.

Here is the intro:

Learn to provide emotional support for distressed patients without getting burned out. You’ll come away with stronger listening skills and a model for healthy caregiver relationships. By applying these skills, you can decrease the Emotional Drain of Listening.

In this interactive dinner program, you’ll learn what causes emotional drain and how to regulate the level of intensity. You will also learn about the “support triangle” and how it can help you navigate stressful interactions.

This program uses exercises and group discussion to give all healthcare professionals specific tools for healthy listening techniques.

For the full workshop description, see page 4 of the Fall 2009 Catalog (PDF format). To register, see the registration form on the middle of the Center’s website.
