· Draw upon literature which has focused upon patients’, clients’ and health care workers’ experiences.

Part four requires you to:
· Explore the components of effective communication
· Ways in which professional and therapeutic relationships are developed and maintained.
· Analyse aspects of both verbal and non-verbal communication, emphasising the influence they have in the communication process.
· Critically reflect upon and evaluate your own communication skills by providing a significant example from your practice experience.
· Critically reflect upon the image you have of yourself and how this influences the way you communicate and relate to others.
· Discuss how you may need to change your perceptions of yourself in order to be able to communicate and relate to others more effectively.
