Psychiatric Rehabilitation Consultants (PRC): Consumers and Clinicians-Partners in Empowerment
Basic Conversation Skills Module

The goal of the Basic Conversation Skills Module is to teach participants how to engage in brief and pleasant conversations. those that typically occur when people interact with their acquaintances, neighbors, and coworkers. Participants can use these skills to:

  • Improve their day-to-day social interactions;
  • Fulfill their daily needs;
  • Enlarge their circle of friends.

Skills Taught in the Module

  • Read verbal and nonverbal behaviors that indicate when it is and isn't okay to start a friendly conversation
  • Keep the conversation going
  • End the conversation pleasantly
  • Put it all together to engage in mutually rewarding interactions


  • Trainer's Manual
  • 6 Participant's Workbook
  • 1 DVD
  • 1 Poster Packet

Special Considerations


The Module is NOT designed to teach participants how to cope with interactions that are:

  • Highly emotional such as those that might occur among distraught family members.
  • Focus on solving a specific problem such as a missing benefits check, getting a raise in pay, etc.

(These are the focus of the learning activity, Outcome Problem Solving, used in all skills in all modules).  The learning activity, Resource Management Problem Solving, is not conducted during the first skill, and its focus for the remaining skills is on identifying conversational topics (topics are resources for conversations.)
