Communication Techniques - OARS

OARS is a skill-based model of interactions adapted from a client-centered approach used in Motivational Interviewing. These skill-based techniques include verbal and non-verbal responses and behaviors. Both verbal and non-verbal techniques need to be adapted to be culturally sensitive and appropriate.

OARS stands for:

O = Open Ended Questions

A = Affirmations
R = Reflections
S = Summaries
