Education & Support Workshop – Listening, Learning & Lunching


Join us for ABCD Mentors-Only Event

Advanced Session for Mentors on
Listening & Empathy – Lessons for Mentoring and Life!

Lunch and ABCD update, too!

ABCD mentors and Family & Friend mentors are encouraged to join us on Saturday March 16th from 8:45 am to 1:15 pm for a very special breast cancer education and support workshop.

Register now to guarantee your seat for this mentor-only gathering.

“Listening and Empathy” are vital perspectives that ABCD mentors bring to their one-to-one support services.  Whether ABCD mentors are responding to a Helpline call or supporting others through a personalized mentor match, ABCD mentoring is grounded in the power of listening.  Listening is the first-step to empowering – a core ABCD value.

This workshop will help mentors further hone listening skills, sharing distinctive insights into hearing what is not “said,” and the power of silence.  Interactive learning opportunities will explore the many aspects of listening and the differences and common ground between sympathy and empathy.  Stay tuned for speaker and session updates to be posted soon.

The day will also include an insiders’ update on all that is happening at ABCD and the exponential growth of one-to-one support services.  Which, of course, means, more mentoring!

As always, complimentary breakfast treats and lunch will be provided.  There will also be time over lunch for mentors to listen and learn from each other!

Advance registration required.  Upon registration confirmation, directions and further details will be provided.

To register call 414 977-1780 extension 1 OR email programdept@abcdmentor.org
