The Argyle’s Communication Cycle Theory: The Argyle’s communication cycle theory is process commonly used in the health and social care sector to explain how communication can be effective, this is a theory in which can enable a person to understand what is being said or wrote, and to be able to respond to the conversation appropriately. This theory has six stages and these include;
Models of Communication. The Linear Model is the simplest form of communication and involves messages being sent and received by two or more people (McCabe 2006). Whilst this model demonstrates how communication occurs in its simplest form, it fails to consider other factors impacting on the process. Communication in nursing practice can be complicated, involving the conveyance of large amounts of information, for example, when providing patients with information relating to their care and treatment or when offering health promotion advice.
3.1 Explain how people from different backgrounds may use and/or interpret communication methods in different ways
Section 4 One theory of communication is Argyle’s stages of the communication cycle. This is when we try to understand what we are being told by another person.
This assignment will discuss two well known theories of effective communication. Firstly it will look at Michael Argyle (1972), the cycle of communication and then it will discuss Bruce Tuckman (1965) stages of communication.
Outcome 3 – Be able to overcome barriers to communication. 3.1 – Explain how people from different backgrounds may use and/or interpret communication methods in different ways.
Special Issues Paper and Presentation Corbo Mikah BSCOM/100 Introduction to Communication November 09, 2015 Mary Lee Special Issues Paper and Presentation This is our final assignment for your class, and because of my communication issues with my children, I am writing this paper again and will have to redo all of my presentation. When I started this class, I was stunned because I thought I knew everything I needed about communication. Well as you can guess, I was wrong I have learned quite a bit along this long journey through Introduction to Communication. I am here writing about some of the key points of communication that I have learned and hopefully I will be able to show you that I was able to learn from you and your
This assignment will start by discussing two well-known theories known as ‘the cycle of communication’ by Michael Argyle and ‘the stages of communication’ by Bruce Tuckman. Firstly, it will look at Michael Argyle’s ‘The cycle of communication’.
With technology, we’ve become more efficient in our efforts of understanding communication. We’ve created machines that can take us a step closer to not only communicating better; but assisting us in understanding the fundamentals. James explains in “Communication as Culture” how a telegraph altered the relation between communication and transportation and also changed how communication was understood. “The telegraph, then, not only altered the relation between communication and transportation; it also changes the fundamental ways in which communication was thought about. It opened up new ways of thinking about communication….for the alteration of ideas. (204)”
Communication is an ongoing process in which individuals exchange messages whose meanings are influenced by the history of the relationship and the experiences of the participants. (Adler, p.384) Communication depends on relationships between the people who are communicating, and on common basics between them. Problems in communications between people may arise due to differences in cultures, perceptions, values, and expectations from life.
2.1: ANALYSE THEORIES, PRINCIPLES AND MODELS OF COMMUNICATION What is communication theory? The communication theory was proposed by S.F Scudder in the year 1980. It states that all living beings existing on the planet communicate although the way of communication is different. The universal law of the communication theory says that all living things, whether they’re plants, animals or human beings, communicate through sound, speech, visible changes, body movements, gestures or in the best way possible to make others aware of their thoughts, feelings, problems, happiness or any other information. (Merton, R.K. 2001)
COM00207 ASSIGNMENT 2: REFERENCED MINI ESSAY. ESSAY QUESTION: Which communication theories that you have researched and applied, provide most insight into understanding the dynamics of the observed event?
In our lives today, we need to know how to work with people on a large scale more than ever. There are increased ways to communicate, and more ways to get your voice heard than ever before. We live in an era of rapidly changing technology, which tends to speed up communication and push us to make quicker decisions. With that being said, I would like to introduce a theory that can aid us in our quest for clear communication.
Wood, showed and explained five criteria’s for evaluating theories listed as follows; Does it offer a full description and explanation it studies? Reading this book it made me understand that theories in communication are tested every time they are used as a means of evaluating them. To determine good theory it takes into account description and explanation says Juliana. Paying more attention on a phenomenon being researched is what researchers aim at through asking themselves a set of questions. For example, Juliana says, “To do so, we ask how well a theory answers a what question (What is it?) and the how or why question (How does it operate? Why does this happen?)”(p.39)
Through my development as a teacher I have used 3 main models of communication; linear model, interactive model and competent communication model. The linear model is sender (code) to receiver (channel), also known as Lasswell Formula and information model. In this instance I use PowerPoint as the code as this can be accessed online through ‘blackboard’ before, during and after the lesson. The channel is both verbal and nonverbal; learner reading or my body language during presentation. Interaction model has the same principle as linear, however feedback from the receiver is given to the sender, also known as the Shannon and Weaver model. This model promotes for effective questioning and directed study within group tasks, including problem based learning and case studies. This is
