Participants in the Skills for Better "Listening" Course learn "active listening" and how to respond to people in need of empathy and support. Training includes lectures,discussion, and group activities. The classes are a prerequisite for any one wishing to become a Volunteer. This course is also available for personal enrichment or continuing education.
People complete the program with an improved ability to relate more effectively with family, friends, and co-workers. They are equipped with the interpersonal skills, knowledge, and
selfawareness necessary to respond to the expressed needs of the people they deal with in their everyday lives.
