Advocacy Strategies: Communicating Support

How do we communicate support and empathy to older participants and their supporters in the midst of challenging and uncertain times? Join us to explore strategies for expressing empathy and inspiring trust on behalf of those who reach out for guidance and support. We’ll explore interviewing and active listening techniques, and will discuss issue-spotting (especially when complex systems are implicated) on behalf of older victim/survivors. In our technologically mitigated communication some traditional communication strategies are effective, while others must be modified. Join us to explore what’s worked effectively to communicate support for victim/survivors and to share techniquest that you’ve found helpful in your own work! 1 Social Work CEU will be offered.
