This is a one day course aimed at helping family lawyers develop their essential listening skills by starting to deeply listen to themselves and to each other without interruption. The workshop involves some short inputs, personal reflection time and small listening group work. It requires delegates to reflect on their lives and their ability to make decisions. It encourages delegates to connect their experience to their day to day practice. 
By listening better to ourselves we become better at deep attentive listening to our clients and help them make the important decisions in a supportive way.
