VERBAL FIRST AID™
Any two people could meet for the first time and within thirty seconds and the exchange of a few words, could be made to cry, laugh or reach for their blood pressure medication.
It is no different to say that with thirty seconds and a few words, we can help one another to lower our blood pressure, relieve pain, and calm a nervous heart—even save a life.
The Verbal First Aid™ Training is available in three formats:
Keynote Address or Lunch & Learn: A one-hour program, including a talk introducing the basic concept of Verbal First Aid, a power-point demonstration, and a Q&A. Fun, lively and informative.
Half-day and Full-day Seminars: A fuller experience including lecture, a power point demonstration, and engaging kinesthetic exercises to facilitate a deeper, practical understanding of the material so it can be used right away in the field.
Two-day Workshop: Similar to the day program, the Workshop is a more complete syllabus, offering a greater number of exercises and a fuller understanding of the techniques of gaining rapport and the delivery of therapeutic suggestion, including special sections on Verbal First Aid™ with children.
In the half-day and both full-day workshops, trainees should be equipped with a copy of the book, The Worst is Over, and notepaper. All other relevant exercise materials will be provided via email or through the convention organizers.
