Using Silence
Therapeutic Communication:
Accepting pauses or periods when no one talks that may extend for several seconds to minutes without interjecting any verbal response
Sitting quietly and waiting attentively until the client is able to put thoughts and feelings into words
Providing General Leads
Therapeutic Communication:
Using statements or questions that (a) encourage the client to verbalize, (b) choose a topic of conversations, and (c) facilitate continued verbalization.
"Can you tell me how it is for you?"
"Perhaps you would like to talk about..."
"Would it help to discuss your feelings?"
"Where would you like to begin?"
"And then what?"
Being Specific and Tentative
Therapeutic Communication:
Making statements that are specific rather than general, and tentative rather than absolute.
Say "Rate your pain on a scale of 0-10," (specific) instead of "Are you in pain?" (general).
