Tell Me Something:

Use of Therapeutic Techniques

to Enhance Communication

Paul Ambrefe

Belmont University

Communication is vital in all of life. The ability to effectively communicate to

gain insight to another person is a necessary skill both for health care providers

and those going into a health related field. Use of communication techniques

have proven effective in obtaining unbiased and uncoerced information

from others to better understand how to provide care. We will dissect these

techniques and apply them to everyday communication to achieve appropriate

exchange of information. Participants will be able to identify and use these

techniques in conversation and understand the importance of open and frank

communication in everyday situations to prepare them for future positions in

health care. The presentation includes verbal participation with each other and

the presenter.
