9- Therapeutic Interventions & Communication - Quiz


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    When communicating with your resident, your body language can be important

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Body language plays a crucial role in communication, including when interacting with residents. Non-verbal cues such as facial expressions, gestures, and posture can convey messages and emotions that words alone may not be able to express. These cues can help build rapport, establish trust, and enhance understanding between the resident and the communicator. Therefore, it is important to be mindful of one's body language when communicating with residents.

      Try repeating your sentence but change your words and structure your sentence differently

    • C.

      Come back later and try to communicate again

    Correct Answer
    B. Try repeating your sentence using the same words and sentence structure
    Explanation
    If you speak to a resident and he/she does not respond or understand, the suggested solution is to try repeating your sentence using the same words and sentence structure. This approach assumes that the resident may have difficulty understanding the content of the sentence, rather than the way it is phrased or structured. By repeating the sentence with the same words and structure, it allows the resident another opportunity to comprehend the message.
