NCC18 Presenter: Kathy Koenig

Join Kathy for the following session during our Third Annual National Caregiving Conference:

Good Communication: How to Best Express Yourself on Friday, Nov. 9, at 1 p.m.

"The way we communicate with others and with ourselves ultimately determines the quality of our lives." Anthony Robbins

Effective communication can't be left to chance. This workshop will offer 3 takeaway tools that can be put into practice immediately. Come and learn more about "I" messages, the 4 Steps of Assertiveness (DESC), and Aikido communication techniques. We will have a chance to practice in the workshop and witness the empowerment that occurs when we adjust our approach. These techniques are useful in all communication but particularly helpful in stressful situations, with medical personnel, and within family systems.

Kathy Koenig, M.S., CCC, CCE is the founder of Caregiver Connection LLC in Urbandale, Iowa. As a therapist and healthy coach she recognizes that when one member of a family has a diagnosis everyone is impacted. Kathy acknowledges and supports family caregivers so they can thrive while caregiving. Co-creating self-care plans is a particular interest.

Kathy has experienced caregiving in predictable, planned, local settings. She's also been dropped into crisis, chaos, and unfamiliar environments. Whatever the circumstances self-care, humor, patience, and good communication were essential. Kathy strives to bring compassion and care to her consulting and education work with family caregivers.
