When establishing rapport and trying to create a relationship, so much of our communication is reliant upon face to face interaction. How do we confidently overcome those awkward silences, technical glitches and other barriers that may impact on engaging a young person?
This free extended webinar recording, delivered in April 2020 in the context of COVID-19, will help to increase your confidence and explore best practice when restricted to engaging young people via technology.
During the webinar, we look at:
- Techniques to facilitate conversations and establish rapport either in a one-to-one or group context
- Explore engagement strategies and how to build meaningful and purposeful relationships
- Identify challenges and develop a range of strategies to overcome them, in particularly focusing on difficult behaviour and safeguarding concerns
- Develop a range of resources that supports your work
