Not just lay health workers but artists too!

Not just lay health workers but artists too! Team building exercise: Back to back drawing to enhancing communication skills involved pairs of people sitting back to back describing a picture card to their partner who would have to draw it, the name of the image could not be mentioned. With a follow up discussion on how people respond when they can’t communicate face to face.
