Difficult conversations with parents and peers:
Facilitator: Louise Dorrat
Quality Area 6: Collaborative partnerships with families and communities
Genuine partnerships with parents are based on the “foundations of understanding each other’s expectation and attitudes” (EYLF, 2009). There are also times when expectations can be different, a sensitive issue has arisen, or they have received feedback that is difficult to hear. This practical workshop will give you strategies to be able to respectfully communicate with families and engage in shared decision making.
- Develop respectful language when views are different
- Understand what a partnership with shared power looks like
- Identify communication techniques that include reflective listening and being assertive in difficult situations.
