Learning to Listen, a ten-week course suitable for those involved in helping and supporting asylum seekers, refugees and vulnerable migrants.

This course covers areas including:

  • listening skills
  • boundaries and limits of role
  • signposting and referring
  • working with interpreters
  • empathy
  • judgements and assumptions
  • self care and avoiding burn out

During the course, participants will consider how best to share the good practice identified by the group. This may include completing a directory, which will then be utilised by group members for ongoing use.

This is not an assessed course. Participants will be required to keep a personal journal of their progress during the course and will be awarded a certificate on completion.

To apply, contact enquiries@compass-counselling.org.uk

Places will be allocated on a first-come first-served basis, so book asap to avoid disappointment.
