Great job completing the training.  We hope that by applying the skills discussed in this training, you will improve your daily life.  Each time we work toward the shared goal of better communication we can all provide better care to each other.

In closing, we would like to take you back to this quote.

“I have come to the frightening conclusion that I am the decisive element in my world.  It’s my attitude that creates the climate.  It’s my daily mood that makes the weather.  As a caregiver, I possess a tremendous power to make a person’s life miserable or joyous.  I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration.  I can humiliate or humor, hurt or heal.  In all situations, it is my response that decides whether a crisis will be escalated or de-escalated and a person humanized or dehumanized.”

Paraphrased from Haim Ginott, teacher and psychologist
