What are 4 types of positive communication styles that the clients will benefit from
You are working at the veteran’s agency, and your caseload includes clients with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). They are uniquely experienced in mortal combat. They recently returned from battle zones in Afghanistan and Iraq. Many of their friends have died in battle. Some wonder why they are still here and their friends are gone. Your boss has asked you to research verbal and nonverbal ways to help you communicate with these clients and build a therapeutic alliance. They want you to demonstrate communication styles through a role play presentation for all the therapists at the weekly staff meeting:
Assume the role of a counselor, and address the following in writing as you prepare for the staff meeting:
- What are 4 types of positive communication styles that the clients will benefit from (e.g., non-judging, attentive listening, validating feelings, compassion or empathy, and open body language)
- What are 2 types of communication styles that the clients might not be receptive to and explain what they are (e.g., placating, authoritarian language, closed body language, and judging)
- Include a summary statement of at least 4 reasons why each communication style is either acceptable or non-acceptable for this population.
