We’ve a special public Listening with your Eyes workshop on Friday 27th April, 2018, open to anyone who's interested in attending, whether a home carer, health professional, bus driver or vicar! We developed this workshop for people who work with the public, especially with those living with dementia, and it helps raise awareness of body language, clear communication, trust and empathy.

Suitable for all experiences, the workshop explores practically the many ways in which we make connections, with the emphasis on the non-verbal. It looks at the impact of body language, mood, eye-contact, touch, and gesture, and shows how tone of voice can change the meaning of the words we say. It explores the many ways in which we can still connect with someone when words may no longer make any sense. The workshop offers an opportunity for participants to see the powerful effect of non-verbal techniques, and their benefit in helping us make real and honest connections – particularly with those living with dementia.

Listening with your Eyes is usually booked directly by organisations for their staff, so this is a rare opportunity for individuals to attend.

The workshop will be held in Stratford-upon-Avon. If you’d like to find out more or book a place, visit our workshop page.
