effective communcation

Extracts from this essay...


When using communication we need to make sure that we are putting across to the person is understood by them. This is called effective communication, effective commutation is when you listen, question, understand and respond. You have to communicate in one on one discussions and be able to observe things that people are doing and to focus on the persons you are talking to. There are a wide number of sources of noise or interference that can enter into the communication process. This can occur when people know each other very well and should understand the sources of error. In a work setting, it is even more common since interactions involve people who not only don't have years of experience with each other, but communication is complicated by the complex and often conflict relationships that exist at work.


Slang necessarily involves deviation from standard language, and tends to be very popular among adolescents. To one degree or another, however, it is used in all sectors of society. Slang terms are frequently particular to a certain subculture, such as musicians, skateboarders, and members of a minority. All the same, slang expressions can spread outside their original arena and become commonly understood; recent examples include "wicked" and "cool". A dialect is a variety of a language used by people from a particular geographic area. If communication is to be effective, people must be able to express themselves clearly and to understand each other. Communication is ineffective when barriers prevent people expressing themselves or understanding others.


Visual and hearing will get in the way off communication for this if you don't have a lot of patients it will be hard for the both of you. Patients are one of the keys things you have in these situations. You can't be in a temper and get frustrated because they are not as fast as they were before. You would check that everything they need to see and hear with are with them and good to use, you must describe things in full detail, let them feel things. It is not good shouting at them because they may feel intimidated and you can use gestures and pictures to help them more. ?? ?? ?? ?? 1 Zanele Porter- 13099- Lesley Davis- Health and Social Care BTEC 1st
