The Person-Centred Approach Made Easy!
Learn how to enable your clients by using this simple-to-apply questioning technique that gets amazing results!
Aged Care Professionals typically do too much TELLING and not enough ASKING! . . . . . . and this is widely recognised as being one of the biggest inhibitors of 'enabling' our aged population to make their own choices on how they want to live within their community.
At Better Questions we are passionate about educating Aged Care Professionals to have more 'person-centred conversations' with their clients by recognising when and how to ask (the right) questions as opposed to advice-giving or telling.
This 'easy read' book will help you recognise unconscious patterns of advice-giving and telling that may not be the best response for your clients and will inspire you to build the skill of asking Better Questions and bring out their potential.
Featuring real case studies, this informative and inspirational book is the 'must have' handbook for all Assessment Officers, Case Managers, Nurses, Care Workers and all providers of professional services in aged care.
