Offered by CRANAplus Bush Sup­port Ser­vices, this course will fur­ther devel­op the core skills of con­gru­ence, empa­thy and pos­i­tive regard as they apply to con­ver­sa­tions cen­tring on more dif­fi­cult themes. Fol­low­ing on from Part 1, Part 2 of this course con­tin­ues to pro­mote the impor­tance of self-reflec­tion and it con­tin­ues to encour­age par­tic­i­pants to prac­tise the iden­ti­fied skills in every­day life.

Who is this course for?

Health prac­ti­tion­ers work­ing in rur­al and remote set­tings who deal with com­mon per­son­al and rela­tion­ship issues with oth­er staff mem­bers, their patients and clients. It is an intro­duc­to­ry course and is NOT designed to pro­vide pro­fes­sion­al coun­selling training.

This course will be help­ful for health pro­fes­sion­als who recog­nise that some­times what is required in a help­ful rela­tion­ship is beyond advice giv­ing. It is use­ful for those who wish to encour­age self-reliance and empow­er the peo­ple they are deal­ing with. The course is for health pro­fes­sion­als who wish to fur­ther their inter­per­son­al skills in a way that high­lights the val­ue of and respect to others.
