A 6-hour training with James Figueiredo, MEd.

April 24, 2023

8:30am–4:00pm


PRESENTATION: This course serves as a resource for increasing the capacity of the professional helpers to support the effectiveness of electronic communication with their clients (phone, video, text, instant messaging, email). The workshop content focuses on key topic areas identified and prioritized by frontline workers and their supervisors, who were interviewed during the design of this training, and it is informed by insights from subject matter experts in community health, education, and related fields. Drawing from professional literature and the lived experience of community members, this course employs a modern approach to challenges confronting helpers in telehealth settings. Topics covered include: the evolution of telehealth, professionalism in communication, responding to our barriers and client’s barriers, tips on improved remote communication, and self-care best practices. Workshop participants will learn about available resources and apply practical tools designed to improve telehealth practices.

Objectives: 

  • Recognize elements of professionalism in remote communication (phone, text, video).
  • Understand the impact of technology literacy on our client’s ability to engage in care.
  • Practice problem-solving to explore solutions to communication challenges.
  • Increase awareness of how to identify signs indicating possible health concerns.
  • Learn best practices in screen hygiene and self-care.
