Most relationships begin with some form of communication, whether it is verbal or non-verbal, so being able to communicate effectively is important for developing positive relationships whether with children of differing age groups or adults. The way we come across i.e. the tone and volume of our voice, our body language, whether we keep eye contact etc. and the messages this sends out is important because if we relate to others in a positive way then it will be easier to develop a more positive relationship. Another important factor of effective communication is being able to listen fully to what is being said and to respond in an appropriate way whether it is to another adult, a teenager or a child.

One strategy to influence others according to Mr Grant is by powerless communication. Powerful communication establish dominance, and takers more often do this style. They speak loudly and forcefully, express certainty, promote accomplishments, and they have large body language. Powerless communication tries to build prestige and admiration, and givers are known to this style. They speak less assertively, express plenty of doubt, relies on advice from others revealing their weaknesses. Asking questions is a form of powerless communication likewise advise seeking and feedback seeking are the other forms of powerless communication. There are four benefits of advice seeking: learning, perspective taking, commitment and flattery. When we ask people for advice, we give them prestige, and that we respect and admire their insights and expertise. It has been proven to be effective in building a reputation rather than establishing dominance by attempting to show strength, power, and authority to people.
Driscoll (2000) model) consists of three stages (What, So what & Now what) completing one cycle help me to improve my caring practice continuously and learning from those experience for better practice in the future. The cycle starts with a description of the situation (“What”), which include analysis of the incident. “So what” evaluate the experience, including the analysis to make sense of the experience, and the final stage “Now what” is a conclusion of what else could I have done better and an action plan to prepare for, if the similar situation arose again. Baird and winter (2005) gave some reasons why reflection is required in the reflective practice. They highlighted that a reflection could generate the practical knowledge, help to adapt
Karl Menninger a Psychiatrist once wrote that listening may be more important than talking (Bethel, 2012). Listening has been deemed important in all kinds of relationships from preserving the dignity of the elderly to the satisfaction in couples and marriages (Bethel, 2012). Good listening skills benefit communication. Whereas, poor listening skills impede communication. The textbook discusses several types of listeners. The first is the faker, the faker only pretends to be listening. The best way to discover if you are dealing with one of these types is to randomly quiz them on the things that you have communicated to them. Next, is the dependent listener, this type of listener only listens to please the speaker. The textbook states that they are so worried about what the speaker thinks about them that they are unable to listen with understanding (Bethel, 2012). The learner has a major problem with the next type, the interrupter. The interrupter never lets the other person in the conversation finish what they are trying to say. They always interrupt with either their opinion on the matter or they make the conversation relate to their feelings (Bethel, 2012). Some things to remember when practicing good listening skills, are no one can listen when two people are talking, and a good listener listens to understand and not to respond. Working on communication skills can help form effective

Most of the time, what you say is less important than how you say it. The non-verbal signals you send out are so important in expressing your emotions. These includes the gestures you make, how loud or how fast you talk, the way you sit, how much eye-contact you make, or how close you stand. If at all you want to hold the attention of others and build a deep connection and trust, you need to be aware and in control of this body

Everytime we communicate with another person or group of people, we have to take into account some factors other than what we are actually saying that can affect how the message is going to be received: body language, tone, intonation, facial expressions, and others; this is what we understand for non-verbal communication. As we saw in class “55% of communication is body language, 38% is the tone of voice, and 7% is the actual words spoken.”, this showcases the great importance of understanding this topic in order to have a clear communication process, since these can distort the meaning of the message. Although non-verbal expressions are present in every culture, their individual meanings and relevance are going to change from one to another, this is why it is important to not only recognize the overall value of this topic, but to study the different patterns of nonverbal communication from different cultures as well.
Communication is about passing messages between people or organisations. Messages between a sender and receiver take place using a medium such as email or phone.
The communication is a process which allows people to express their thoughts, feeling and ideas, it occurs between two or more people and it 's an effective way to show our needs, demands, and requests.

All human beings communicate either with intention or without intention every single day. According to Barth (2014), Palo Alto Team stated “ one cannot not communicate” in one of their axioms of communication. Communication can be defined as “a social process in which individuals employ symbols to establish and interpret meaning in their environment” (Went & Turner, 2014, p. 5). It can be divided into three models in order to enhance our understanding towards the function of communication, which are mainly linear model, interactional model and transcactional model (Wood, 2009). According to Went & Turner, 2014, there are also different traditions and contexts in communication where it helps us to break down difficulty when we attempt to understand communication theory and their process.
Communication is the process of transferring of information. Viswanathan (2010) says communication can take many forms of verbal and non-verbal methods which may include speaking, writing, gestures, expressions, listening and body language to name a few. All of these things should be taken into consideration to ensure an effective means of sending and receiving information. How and what information is sent may not be received in the same manner intended. Therefore the way information is transferred from a source to the receiver or receivers can directly influence a situation and outcome in a positive or negative manner.
