42 Personality Types Passive or Unassertive Allowing your own rights to be violated by failing to express honest feelings Goal: Avoid conflict no matter what Little risk involved – very safe Little eye contact, often defers to others opinions, usually quiet tone,

43 Examples of Passive communication “I don’t know.” “Whatever you think.” “you have more experience than I. You decide” “I’ll go with whatever the group decides.” “I don’t care. It doesn’t matter to me.”

44 Personality Types Aggressive Protecting ones own rights at the expense of other’s rights – no exceptions Goal: win at all costs Does not consider actions a risk because this person thinks they will always get their way. Eye contact is angry and intimidating; lots of energy; loud and belittling, never defers to others.

45 Examples of Aggressive communication “I don’t know why you can’t see that this is the right way to do it” “It’s going to be my way or not at all.” “You’re just stupid if you think that will work.” “That kid of logic will sink the company.” “Who cares what you feel. We’re talking about making things work here.”

46 Personality Types Passive - Aggressive Forfeiting your own rights initially, followed by manipulation and vengeance later. Goal: avoid conflict and then make the other party wish they had seen it your way Avoid risk initially, risks relationships later, then acts surprised when people are mad Behaves passively to people’s face, then aggressively when they are not around.

47 Examples of Passive-Aggressive communication “Sure doctor, I’d be happy to write that verbal order” but back on the unit the order is “forgotten” “I love your hair. Most people probably can’t even tell it’s a wig” “I hear what you’re saying, and I wouldn’t want to make waves, so I’ll do what you say even though someone will probably get sued.”

48 Personality Types Assertive Protecting your own rights without violating the rights of others Goal: communicate with respect and find a solution to the problem Eye contact maintained, listens and validates others, confident and strong yet also flexible, objective and unemotional, presents wishes clearly and respectfully

49 Examples of assertive Communication “So what you’re saying is…” I can see that this is important to you and it is also important to me. Perhaps we can talk and try to solve the problem “I think… I feel… I believe that…” “I would appreciate it is you…”

101 Patient: “I don’t know. I hate to have my boyfriend see me looking like this. Just thinking about him coming to visit makes me nervous.” Nurse: “You really should stop worrying. That may be what’s keeping you from getting the rest you need. And after all, no one expects you to look your best when you’re in the hospital.”

102 Patient: “You’d think my doctor would have prevented me from getting phlebitis, but he’s too busy to care about what’s happening to me.” Nurse: “You’re wrong, Mr. Iverson. Of course he cares.”

103 Nurse: “You seem to be kind of restless tonight.” Patient: “Nobody cares. My doctor wants me to go—just go on home. He doesn’t care?” Nurse: “Go home?”

104 Patient: “Maybe I should find a hobby or something. I try not to get discouraged; I know I shouldn’t let it get me down.” Nurse: “That’s the right attitude. It really doesn’t help to worry about it.”

105 Nurse: “How are you feeling this morning, Mr. Patterson?” Patient: “Oh, fine, thanks.” (unenthusiastic) Nurse: That’s good.

106 Patient: “I can’t go home with this…AIDS. If they want me out of here so bad, why don’t they just let me die?” Nurse: “You can’t go home because you have AIDS?”

107 Patient: “Well, I haven’t been able to work for quite a while now, and the doctor says I might not ever work as a carpenter again.” Nurse: “It must be difficult for you right now, but I’m sure everything will be all right.”

108 Patient: "I'm just jumpy-I get like this sometimes. I guess it's because I didn't get too much sleep last night." Nurse: "Yes, when you don't get a good night's sleep it does make you edgy."

109 Patient: "What's there to talk about? First they say they have to operate, and then when I'm beginning to feel better, I get this infection. I don't think I'm ever going to get out of here!" Nurse: "I know just how you feel. You know, everyone gets frustrated when things aren't going right."

110 Listening Exercise Pair up with another student. Person A will tell person B her/his most memorable recent experience. Person B should try to think about a problem they have or an assignment coming up while person A is speaking. Discuss how you felt about both roles and experiences, with person A speaking first.

111 Person A then tells the same story again, taking about the same amount of time. This time person B will concentrate as much as possible on person A and on what he/she is saying. Share the differences between these two experiences and discuss the relevance this may have when person A is a client and person B is a nurse.

How could anyone deliberately hurt such a sweet old lady?” Which initial response by the nurse would be most helpful to the aide? “It is not appropriate for nursing personnel to make judgments about people.” “It is very upsetting isn’t it.” “There is no proof yet as to who abused her.” “You should try to understand how frustrating it is to care for the elderly 24 hours a day.”
