In Novska on 21 May 2105, and in Sisak, on 28 May 2015 workshop took place called Basic communication skills, assertive behavior and intergenerational communication. In the introductory lecture users are familiarised with the basic features of healthy relationships and communication, integration of verbal and non-verbal communication, active listening, not listening types and types of messages. It was followed by an exercise of recognizing types of messages in which the users were very successful. Then they were familiarised with the concept of assertiveness, as well as through discussions where users gave various examples and everyday life related to the assertive behavior, standing up for yourself but not at the expense of others. Users took a little test of assertiveness where through the results they got feedback on what part of their personalities in emotional and social terms would need more work to make their communication and assertiveness skills more developed and appropriate.
Members have participated in workshops learning active listening and memorizing in a way so that they mutually cross-presented themselves, as well as memorizing and recounting stories default. It was interesting to see how the story quickly changed the basic content - both directly learned how errors occur in the communication channel.
