      In this workshop we will describe the building blocks of effective communication skills integral to the development of protective behaviours. Good communication is the vital link between the inner world of children and their parents, carers and support workers. When we create positive relationships with children through effective communication the likelihood of their being abused decreases and opportunities to disclose are increased.
