Explain the role of Effective Communication and Interpersonal Interaction in a Health and Social Care context. (P1)
The process of running a group therapy session is a unique time to tests a person’s skills abilities when it comes to facilitating that group. This paper will mainly look at ways when it comes to my learning's of this class that I took ways; I will also show examples and skills to run a good group therapy session. This whole paper is a reflection of the many things that I took was on being an active group counselor facilitator.
When leading the group therapy, leaders can often encounter various problems or challenges from some members. Some of the issues that might arise within the counseling process include issues of the dominator, the chronic talker, the negative members, the distracter, the resistant members and the member who strives to outsmart the leader (Corey et al., 1995).
One can relate this to the group therapy setting, thus this project provided firsthand experience into the importance of all therapeutic factors. In addition to this, it is clear the experience and insight gained from this project are directly transferrable to the practice of psychiatric nursing, such as to the regard of the therapeutic relationship, including communication and
Effective communications is important in developing positive relationships because as a teacher`s assistant it develops trust between you and them communication is verbal, body language and eye contact and it is a two way process in how we listen and respond, identify and understand and be able to respond to it through communication appropriately to their ages needs and abilities. This involves using words and phrases that children will understand actively listening to children, responding positively to children`s feeling`s and views and confirming points to reinforce children`s knowledge and understanding helps them to achieve. With young people effective communication is important to developing positive relationships because it reduces conflict
Group therapy has been used for many years as a therapeutic method in which members can offer support and understanding for each other. It can be defined as two or more people, who share common issues, meeting and interacting face-to-face to help one another reach an identifiable goal. There are several types of group therapy, one that I will be discussing in this paper is the self-help group. In recent years, self-help groups have increased in number and credibility. Members can speak freely about their experiences, while receiving advice and support from others, which in turn, can help them realize that they are not alone in their struggles. In this paper, I will analyze my observational experience of two self-help groups, Alcoholics Anonymous,
Write a brief description of the presence and therapeutic communication approaches you have tried in your practice for the last 3-weeks. Provide specific examples of patient situations in which you tried the approach.
At this meeting we discuss the importance of her first deciding what she want to do with the pregnancy. She stated that she was confused she did not even though it over what she was going to do. As her counselor I ask her to write down all pros and cons of her decision. I ask her if her boyfriend knew about the pregnancy she reply
Communication differences – It is important to know the children in your school well as some may have communication difficulties which are not apparent on first meeting a child. A good example of this is a child who is on the Autistic Spectrum as their interpretation of social situations and abstract language tends to be greatly underdeveloped. You must speak plainly and with no ambiguity so as to no cause confusion. Children with a mild hearing loss may just need you to speak slowly and clearly, a more severe hearing loss may require sign language for effective communication and so it may be necessary to take training in sign language if a child with severe hearing loss is coming to your school. Children with speech and language difficulties
The first two groups were mixed gender adults, the third group was available to only women, and the third group was a dual diagnosis group. Adolescent groups are available in the evenings. I attended Group 1 that was led by a psychotherapist. The topic to explore was “Powerless and Control.” The goal or objective was for the client to further recognize theirs powerlessness over addictive disorders. As I witnessed the clients share their personal feelings, I noticed that the therapist encouraged clients to solve their own problems rather than giving them what he would consider to be solutions. He also repeatedly used the effective therapeutic communication of reflection. For example, the therapist would say, “So it made you felt angry and frustrated…” when a client gave an account of a heated argument with her
SRM explores deeper into group dynamics and focuses on dyads and many great and positive outcomes, arrives using this model for instance, Christensen & Feeney (2016) state, “In theory, the SRM could be applied to any form of group therapy. In reality, however, the SRM is often best suited for therapy groups in which members have some basic level of knowledge about other individuals in the group. That is, each group member should have some level of identifiability to each other group member” (p. 197).
This week we covered a lot of interesting material, we focused on the nurse-client relationship, therapeutic vs non-therapeutic techniques, and non-defensive communication. I feel that the hardest part for me is to express discontent in a non-defensive way since the emotional status in the moment plays a huge role in how I react. Working in this is something I need to do. Also, although I understand the interpersonal approach of the relationship with the patient, as well as the roles proposed by Peplau, I feel that I need to review the entire concept of the theory to be confident in it. Some of the methods I will be applying to improve these areas are to review all these concepts once again and reflect on how I can apply them to approach different
Depression in late life is very common, particularly in older adults who are moving in to a different phase of their lives. They may experience a loss of a job, death of a spouse, empty nest, or a move that has taken them away from their social network. Geriatric depression is expensive for everyone involved, from the seniors who suffer not only mentally but physically from its effects to the increased use of health services such as emergency room visits. Suicide is also a consequence of depression in seniors. Sometimes depression is not diagnosed properly because its physical symptoms can mimic other illnesses. Many women, ages 55 and up, experience feelings of loneliness, isolation and do not know what to do now that they are in this new stage in their life; not working etc. Is the women’s group effective in helping members overcome feelings of depression and isolation?
This writer met with the patient briefly as she was clearly upset about the cancellation of the Women's Group. This writer validated the patient's feeling as she expressed about looking forward being around other participants. This writer informed the patient that she cannot run a group with only two people, it has to be three participants in a group. This writer informed the patient that there will be a new participant coming to the group next week and hopefully the Women's Group can in fact occur. The patient informed this writer, if the Women's Group does not occur, she will explore other groups which this writer completely understand the patient position.
