Healthy Conversation Skills Training provides health professionals with invaluable skills to support clients to make behaviour changes for a healthier lifestyle. 

Healthy Conversation Skills gives health professionals the tools to support and empower women and their families to make a plan for change that fits in with their lives.

The sessions are run as a group and seek to:      

  • Explore your current practice
  • Promote reflection
  • Engage in group problem-solving
  • Encourage you to think about what you’ll do differently
  • Revisit  plans in subsequent sessions to facilitate real and lasting learning
  • Be challenging and discover new ways of working.
