For all practitioners working in Settings and Childminders working with children aged 0 - 5.
What does this event cover
For many people challenging or difficult conversations are a bit like the common cold: we all get them, they can be a real nuisance, but there seems to be no cure.

Unlike the common cold, these conversations should not be avoided. The ability to be able to talk about very sensitive and emotive issues is an integral part of early years practice and can be critical to maintaining good parent partnership working and to improving relationships.

Join us for a insight on how to have these difficult conversations.
