This is a one day instructor-led course and follow-on day of technical assistance from the NOAA
Office of Coastal Management. A key element of communicating effectively about risk is identifying
the audience’s diverse values and concerns and using that information to design a communication
approach. The goal is a high level of community engagement—and action. This training and workshop
will help Delaware community leaders understand and connect with stakeholders and inspire riskwise
behavior through improved communication. Topics include: how and why people perceive risk
differently, how to learn more about your audience, best practices for risk communication,
ways to frame your conversations to appeal to a variety of audiences, and sample conversations for
responding to difficult questions
