"Conversations Inviting Change" (CIC) is a narrative-based approach to encounters in health and social care that can enrich all professional work.
CIC is based on the simple idea that everyone - whether as a patient, client, learner or colleague - benefits from telling stories about their experiences, and being skilfully questioned about these. CIC can be applied in:
- person-centred consultations with individuals and families
- supervision, coaching and mentoring
- team development and facilitation
- conflict resolution
- training in reflective practice and professionalism
- action learning sets and collaborative learning groups
- leadership and management
- creating a culture of respect
