It is necessary to often greet colleagues by asking how well they are, in order to show that you value them. It is essential to develop trust between care workers; this could be done by respecting their confidentiality. While having conversation with colleagues it is important to remember details and be a good listener. A care setting may have their own social expectations about the way you communicate thoughts and feelings. These may differ from social expectations when communicating with family and friends. Therefore amberâs this conversation is not accepted within the work context. ________________ ________________ Amber could add a little enthusiasm, interest, correct terminology to express her thoughts and feeling and use a correct body language.

Conclusion

________________ 1. Communication cycle helps care workers to build understanding using an active process of reflecting, checking on what the other person is receiving. ________________ ________________ ________________ ________________ M1 Assess the role of effective communication and interpersonal interaction in health and social care with a reference to theories of communication. ________________ ________________ A health promotional specialist was invited to a school to give information on violence. I witnessed how Mr Paul uses his communication skills to tell children about violence and other sensitive and complex issues in the world. Sometime students may ask him about drugs, sex, relationships and alcohol, as they can get the information from TV, movies, magazines or from friends. ________________ Using Argyle theory Mr Paul has to pay attention to a specific form of communication in order to send and receive information correctly. Once he talks about the violence in the world, he has to consider if what he says will scare the children and how he can communicate this information supportively and comfortably. This is the part where he has to consider feedback and whether it was understood. He may also need to consider simple language so they can understand. Also he may have to give an example from current news coverage. ________________ When he starts talking he needs to watch his audienceâs body language. The facial expression can show our emotions. Some children will be sad, anxious and even fearful for their own family's safety, others will be confused about how to make sense of the events, and others will have little reaction. For example: Some will respond with excitement and anticipation, while others will have a mix of emotionsâfear, sorrows, and worry. ________________ He needs to listen to their response in a way that can show he is interested and attentive to what they said. Then he needs to understand what they are saying from their point of view. If he cannot understand something, he will ask them to explain it. ...read more.
