**This workshop is tailored specifically for researchers and/or community partners who are conducting collaborative, community-based research. The session is appropriate for basic, translational, and clinical investigators and community collaborators who seek to engage in these types of research.

The Clinical and Translational Science Institute at Children’s National (CTSI-CN) invites you to participate in an upcoming community-based research training workshop on June 4, 2018, Building Community Communication Capacities: From Bench to Communities.
The training is sponsored by the Community Engagement Core of the CTSI-CN as a way of bringing researchers and community partners together to foster dialogue and collaborate on important initiatives.
Space is limited and by invitation only. Register now! https://www.eventbrite.com/e/building-

The purpose of this workshop is to enhance the capacity of researchers and community partners to effectively form partnerships and communicate to make collective decisions, while creating
relationships that advance both research endeavors and community health.
Communicating and creating shared directions among multidisciplinary teams - clinicians, scientists and nonscientists - requires individuals to flexibly and competently respond to their audience. Yet, communication and partnering practices that facilitate functional relationships are rarely part of our training.
The half-day workshop will apply an innovative and interactive methodology, where participants will be led through experiential exercises that develop their abilities to listen, ask questions, and build with what others say. These skills are foundational for creating a mutual understanding, establishing shared goals, and fostering effective communication for the conduct of community-based research.
The workshop will be conducted by Dr. Raquell Holmes, a pioneer in the use of improvisation and
performance to advance scientific research communities. Trained formally as a cell biologist, Holmes works in the fields of high performance computing and computational sciences. As the founder of improvscience, she uses her training in human development and performance from the East SideInstitute to help scientists build collaborative learning and research environment.
