Understanding the Psych Patient and How to Communicate With Them

Understanding the Psych Patient and How to Communicate With Them

Gain a better understanding of how to hear, discern, communicate, and ultimately care for psych patients. Sometimes caring just isn’t enough to help psych patients--they need skilled conversations in different ways. Instead of using tools such as stethoscopes and information from x-rays, etc., you will learn how to BE the tool and form a quick relationship. After this topic, you will be able to better hear, discern, and communicate more effectively with people with severe emotional and “thinking” problems. If you listen carefully, you will probably be able to develop an empathic understanding of the person, what matters to them, and what that person needs at the moment and wishes for in the future. You may even be able to understand the level of dysfunction that interferes with the patient’s ability to negotiate real-life situations. You can’t possibly fix everything that is wrong, but with psych patients I have known, listening IS caring.
