Counselling Skills (Intermediate)

Empathy is the ability to understand the perceptions of others and to identify with their emotions. This forms the foundation for successful counselling and the development of healthy human relationships. In working with community and having to mediate between various parties, IRCC members have to possess a strong ability to empathise. They need to be able to capture and relate to the emotional nuances of the people involved. Just as importantly, they need to be able to communicate this empathic understanding accurately so the parties involved feel identified with, and hence, less defensive and more open to working towards a positive conflict resolution.

Workshop Objectives

  • To enhance their ability to exercise and convey empathy in the
    possible scenarios they might encounter as IRCC members.
  • To develop critical listening and questioning skills in conveying emphatic responses effectively.
  • To learn and develop the concepts of the Problem Definition-Attempted
    Solution-Desired Goals-Intervention (P.A.D.I) model, incorporating the basic listening and question skills
