Therapeutic Communication is due no later than 1/25. When completing the assignment, there should be a dialogue between you (the nurse) and the client using the techniques of therapeutic communication. You may include silence, or therapeutic touch as a technique. For example: Nurse walks into client’s room who is crying after noted hanging up the phone. Nurse: You seem upset. Client: My boyfriend/girlfriend just broke up with me. Nurse: Therapeutic touch on arm. Client: (Crying). He/she says the long distance is not working out. Nurse: This must be difficult for you. I am here if you would like to discuss this more. Client: Thank you. I appreciate that. (Side Note: Continue with an organic conversation/exchange).
