Powerful Tools for Caregivers: Class #3
February 7 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm
The Powerful Tools for Caregivers course is a 6-week course, offered virtually four times in 2023, with Session 1 starting in January, Session 2 starting in April, Session 3 starting in August and Session 4 starting in October.
Class #3: Communicating Feelings, Needs, and Concerns
Participants learn how to communicate their feelings, needs and concerns more effectively by using “I” messages. Through brief dramatizations, participants experience the impact of both “I” messages and “You” messages (which tend to sound blaming and put people on the defensive). They practice changing “You” messages to “I” messages, and identifying when statements beginning with the word “I” are actually “Hidden You” messages.
