Overview

"Nurses communicate with a diverse client group in their everyday practice. Each day is fraught with communication challenges from a patient, a family member, a colleague, or a supervisor. Excellence in nursing care requires the ability to instantly respond to an emotion-charged moment with a therapeutic use of one's self, by way of effective verbal and nonverbal communication. Therapeutic Interaction in Nursing provides an advanced theoretical explanation of therapeutic communication for the nurse and nursing student when encountering problematic situations." This multifaceted text not only provides the skill development required to communicate therapeutically in these difficult situations, it offers communication strategies and self-awareness exercises that will assist in the inner growth necessary to develop effective outer behavior. Applying fundamental concepts from the best seller Patient Practitioner Interaction, Therapeutic Interaction in Nursing is an important text for the nursing field.
