Many people assume that good communicators possess an inherent gift for speaking and listening to others however, communication skills are developed with deliberate, consistent effort and practice. Building on foundational principles and skills learned during the basic training, this module will support facilitators in unpacking and appreciating the interconnected and relational nature of the therapeutic relationship through the cultivation of effective communication skills. We will explore numerous factors involved in communicating effectively and the ways that communication becomes compromised with clients, colleagues, professionals, and organizations.
Additionally, as breathwork continues to grow in acceptance and popularity it is increasingly being offered over electronic delivery platforms and shared with a broader range of clientele including large and small corporations, institutions, and businesses of all kinds. These evolving platforms and settings for our breathwork offerings are driving the need to develop excellent communication skills in every area of practice.
