Teaching Consultation Skills

Teach using Verbatims & Reflections





If you have files you would like me to host on here and share with others, OR if you would like to help develop these pages further, then please email me.

Some people think using verbatims is out dated and old!

A verbatim is a recollection of a conversation but in written form – word for word.    Trainees are so used to having their videos watched, trainers sit in with them, their consultations marked via COT and other methods.  So why not add more flavour by using a verbatim.   

Verbatims are usually of pre-prepared but real consultations that the trainee has not been involved with.  In that way, verbatims can be used with trainees who are sensitive to critical feedback about their own performance – hence allowing you to focus on the skills of the consultation rather than the trainee being fearful of the critique they may recieve in otherwise personal performance training.  

Have a go.  Again, if you have any to share with me,

Please leave a comment if you have a tip, spot an error, spot something missing or have a suggestion for a web resource. And of course, if you have developed a resource of your own, please email it to me to share with others.
