SSC – Listening to understand: an Introduction to counselling and coaching

Scottish Sensory Centre (SSC)
2nd March 2023
10:00am - 3:00pm

An Introduction to non-professional counselling and coaching

This course will be of interest to qualified teachers of deaf children, speech and language therapists, and audiologists.

It can feel like a daunting and confusing time when you first find out that your child has a hearing loss. Equally during periods of transition when you have to make difficult decisions about you or your child’s ongoing hearing journey, having professionals around you from audiologists, speech therapists and teachers of the deaf who are empathic and active listeners is vital for a successful outcome.

This course will give you an introduction to the non professional counselling skills you need to support children and families in ways that promote collaborative problem solving.

You will leave with practical ideas to put into practice immediately that will transform your interactions, navigating difficult conversations and building trust.
