Objective 10 (Module I, Unit B) Outline Specific Techniques for communicating with children. (McK 53-67, TLLL 441-442) Knowing how each age group commonly perceives health, illness, and body functions should guide  patient interaction. Components of Effective Communication Touch:  Crucial infants because convey messages of love and security. Infants sense emotion and  respond to caring, gentle hands. Toddlers/preschool find being held soothing. School age children require permission for touch beyond casual pat on back/hug. Physical Proximity & Environment:  NUS should place themselves in a child’s position and  attempt to show empathy for their first impressions. Create supportive and inviting environment  including developmentally appropriate toys and furniture. Move cautiously when meeting new  children, so as not to scare or intimidate. Privacy crucial when working with adolescents, so avoid public convos so as not to expose private info and lead to misinterpretation or mistrust. Active Listening: o Attentiveness o Clarification through Reflection: Expressing what was heard and understood about  context of the message. o Empathy o Impartiality: Listen with open mind. During handoff family descriptions should be done  without judgment to eliminate pre-judgment. Talk WITH children rather than TO them.  Listen with eyes as well as ears, only then can the message be fully understood.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
