Compassionate Communication: Using Empathy as a Diagnostic and Treatment Tool
As medical professionals, we are trained to ask questions; but how well are we trained to hear answers? When your patient doesn?t stop talking, what do you do? What happens when they give you the ?wrong? answer to your question? How do you respond when you feel you?re not being heard? These questions are not uncommon to any interpersonal relationship, let alone the doctor-patient relationship. This September, learn to listen more deeply, further enabling trust and understanding with your patients.
Nonviolent Communication (NVC), a method of empathy practice developed by Dr. Marshall Rosenberg in the 1960s, focuses on observation, feelings, needs and requests. Its core teaching is understanding that every human being is working to meet their universal needs and values in any given act or expression. The method is currently employed in over 60 countries, peacefully and powerfully resolving conflict on personal to political levels.

Topics covered (approx. 90 min):
? What is empathy?
? What is the clinical relevance of practicing compassionate communication?
? What is the NVC model?
? How can we apply NVC in our medical practice?
