CW203 Child Welfare II - Advanced Communication Strategies
This module focuses on effective communication skills, motivational interviewing from a strength-based approach, communication with different populations, and how confidentiality affects all communication.

It is important to know how to effectively communicate with the individuals you serve as well as with other people within your environment.
