Psychologist: I always talk directly to the child or young person, and I use ‘circular questions’. I will ask the child or young person “What do you think about what mum or dad said?” I also maintain eye contact with the people in the conversation at all times, helping everyone to feel part of the conversation.

Social Worker: Use ‘circular questioning’ to help you engage children and young people in conversations, questions such as “Tommy how do you feel about that?”

Nurse Consultant: I may move seats to sit next to the child or young person, so we can talk directly to one another helping them to participate more in a conversation.
