This foundation course is intended for any person working in family support who may have contact with clients, including administration staff.  It provides essential effective communication skills to enhance both your professional and personal interpersonal skills. In order to be an effective support to another person you don't need to know everything about everything.  What is essential is to learn the limits of your knowledge, where to find the things you don't know, and to really listen effectively to the others' experiences.   As a support person you are not meant to 'fix' other people's problems, or even provide advice for every issue that crops up for them.  Your role is to help them find their own best solutions while supported by someone they trust.

The skills you will learn in developing effective communication are designed to enhance your every day life and will be valuable for using in your relationships and your workplaces.  You are encouraged to practise these new ways of communicating and reflecting on your values and beliefs at every opportunity, not just when you are engaged in study.  You'll be surprised at what a positive differences even small changes in communication can make.
