Therapeutic communication is seen as a complex skill that involves much subtlety and requires a range of different approaches (Jones, 2009). The importance of therapeutic communication and professional relationships with patients as a prime means of attaining healthcare treatment found to be the underlying theme in interpersonal relationships ( Arnold and Boggs, 2011). Therapeutic communication can create a nurse-patient relationship that enhances choice and responsibility, improves patient input and cooperation and thereby maximizes care outcomes (Rosenberg and Gallo-Silver, 2011). By integrating knowledge with compassion, the skill of therapeutic communication is regarded as the nurse’s greatest asset in reducing stresses and establishing a bond (Rosenberg and Gallo-Silver, 2011). Therefore, person-centred communication is regarded as the mandatory fundamentals in health professions (O’Toole, 2012). Attaining person-centred communication is often challenging and it is essentially required in health professions (O’Toole, 2012). One of the important basis for patient-centred communication is the effective listening (O’Toole, 2012). This essay briefly explains the various components of active listening skills that enhance therapeutic communication. Finally this essay concludes with a self-assessment of the current knowledge and skills that the author possess, followed by a development plan that shows the goals and strategies that can be used to improve author’s active

If this is the first and only mistake the client has made, and depending on the totality of the circumstances, I do not believe violating the client is necessary. I would ensure the client is documented for their actions and perhaps even have the client write an essay on the dangers of drug use and consequences while on probation or parole. This way, if the behavior continues, I would have a written and signed history of the offense also showing that the client was well aware of the misconduct and the actions that could be taken for any future incidents. Another action I would take, besides regular drug screens, would be to conduct some random tests without any announcement to verify that the client is in fact maintaining his or her court

Working with minor clients can be extremely challenging because of the grey areas surrounding ethical and legal issues. Two major challenges when working with minor clients are confidentiality and reporting suspected child abuse or neglect. There are actions taken by counselors to provide the best possible care for the minor client, while maintaining a therapeutic relationship. As a future counselor, I am aware I will encounter challenges pertaining to confidentiality and abuse/ neglect, however I understand the need to make an ethical decision and use the ACA Code Of Ethics to guide me through the journey.
Within the position I have, A Non-Injury Claims Adjuster, I think that the main thing is being able to listen a communicate all relevant information. Although everyone has different ways in which they communicate, the only correct communication to me is effective communication. Without effective communication, many things can be passed on that are not true or that get twisted in some form of way. Recently, my team had an issue where something was said about vacation days not being available during a certain time of the year and because no one wanted to bring the issue to upper management, the issue was never resolved and at the last minute people were trying to take vacation at the same time. If someone would have brought the issue to upper management and asked for clarification, then the entire problem could have been avoided with the right communication.
Patients in acute care settings are often wholly dependent on the professional care nurses provide to them. Patient safety in intensive care units has long been a topic of interest and is dependent on many factors. Recently, patient safety and outcomes in relation to the staffing of registered nurses (RNs) have been topics of much research to identify how much impact staffing really has on patient outcomes. The overwhelming majority of studies conducted have found that the number of nursing staff providing care is strongly correlated with patient outcomes (Institute of Medicine, 2004).

Chronic pain is best acknowledged by understanding the person and how they live. Client A (as he will be known) lives with pain on a daily basis, as do thousands of people. Currently, Client A is trying to deal with high stress levels and this is affecting his work and personal relationships, as well as life in general. So what is happening to Client A from a biological, physiological and social aspect and how can these changes affect the musculoskeletal system enough to create pain? Client A did not wake up one morning and his pain began. His pain journey is a process of ………changes. began developed needs to begin with confirmation that his pain is real and what he is experiencing is normal but his actual journey is unique to him. As a therapist, it is about recognising specific mechanisms and understanding how they
When a therapist honors resistance, it allows the client to have an opportunity to not have to struggle with the feeling of having to do the work alone or of being engulfed with the pain. Sack Lentz (2016) states “as in all successful work with resistance, we can hope to see in our patient’s greater freedom and flexibility” (p. 9). Sophie entered treatment with the belief that therapy did not work and that she did not need it. The therapist allowed her to have this belief, and just encouraged her to keep coming for her evaluation and slowly gained her trust. Once Sophie chooses to stay in therapy, the hard work begins. The therapist begins to use Sophie’s resistance as an indictor that there is a deep wound
