young adults with great Basic communication skills

This Basic Communication Skills and Life Skills workshop is designed to support individuals who may not have received guidance in effective communication and interaction with others.

It emphasizes that it's not just about what we say, but also how we say it, as our manner of speaking influences who listens and understands us.

Strong communication skills are essential for fostering enduring relationships, both personally and professionally.

Recognising that communication and relationships can be challenging for some individuals, especially those with special needs, New Reflections has developed this unique training workshop.

Participants will gain valuable insights into effective communication techniques, including:

  • what to say,

  • how to say it,

  • when to say it.

They will also learn key strategies for cultivating positive and meaningful relationships.
