  • Explore how hidden communication difficulties may be written off as "bad behaviour" and develop an understanding of how to include hard to reach individuals.
  • Develop an appreciation of how to approach the emotional challenges raised by connecting with damaged young people, and identify ways to manage these in your work.
  • Identify barriers to successful communication in your current practice, and leave with new skills and strategies to overcome these.
