|Student Contribution Band:
||College of Healthcare Sciences
This subject builds on the interpersonal communication skills developed in Communication
for Nursing and Midwifery. The focus of this subject is the development of knowledge
and skills to support those undergoing a crisis. Crises may be precipitated by a number
of factors. Environmental, socio-cultural and developmental factors may all play a
part in the development of a crisis. Illness can precipitate a crisis as the person
loses some degree of independence and ability. The recognition of our mortality may
also lead to a crisis. Those who are suddenly bereaved may find adjustment to the
loss of a major person in their lives difficult.
