  • Reflection On The Use Of SilenceChantelle BartschRDPN 0319
  • Let the other person speak
  • Shhhh... no talking
  • Listen
  • Active Experimentation
  • I'm going to try implementing silence in communication today even if it may feel a bit uncomfortable or awkward to me.
  • Concrete Experience
  • Well uhh.. I.. guess I feel ok... [5 seconds pass] .. It's just been really hard dealing with all this for the past year and I'm tired.
  • Hello Jon, my name is Chantelle, I'm a student nurse and will be assisting with your care today. How are you feeling today?
  • Reflective Observation
  • Wow, using silence when I wouldn't typically use it is proving to be way more effective than I previously anticipated.
  • I learned that using silence during my interaction with Jon, provided him the time to bring up how he was feeling (Smith, 2018). If I had chosen to speak and carry on with the conversation, he may not have felt like he had the chance to express his thoughts and feelings.
