Communication is an important skill in many professions, but especially so in healthcare and social services. In those fields, understanding the relationship between persons and their social, cultural, economic, and political contexts is of primary interest. In order to support your patient/client and build trust, you have to understand their circumstances and priorities, reflect on your implicit biases, and convey your message in a way that is digestible for them. These tasks require you to ask the right questions at the right time, actively listen to what was said and what was not, and demonstrate empathy through words, tone, eye gaze, and body language. But how do we build these communication skills?

In this free HCAP online seminar, participants will learn about person-center ethnography, preparing and conducting interviews, and analyzing qualitative data. Participants are required to conduct 2-3 in-depth, recorded interviews with a single Asian American respondent about their illness or caregiving experience. These recordings will then become the focus of seminar discussion and critique. The overall objective is to improve one’s interviewing and listening skills by practicing, and then analyzing, the interview process.

We also have speakers joining us for most of the sessions. These are researchers or practitioners who will share their experiences in interviewing and listening.
