On January 27, Wendy Johnstone discussed ‘The Art of Persuasion in Caregiving’ in our FCBC Facebook Live.
It’s safe to say that lecturing, arguing, and telling the people we care about what “they need to be doing” to manage their illness or recovery typically results in less harmony, more resistance and likely less happiness for the caregiver and care recipient. In this video, Wendy explores three core communication styles to help guide conversations between caregivers and their loved one towards positive change.
Here are the resources Wendy mentions in her video:
