Is this statement true or false, and why?ANSWER: The statement is false. Not all people are at the same place on Maslow’s hierarchy of human needs. To communicate effectively with a person, you need to understand what he or she is deficient in. For example, you would use different communication styles when talking to a homeless person who may have psychological and safety needs than when talking to an elderly person who is lonely and depressed due to the recent loss of his or her spouse.

Feedback is the response to a message, and noise is anything that may interfere with or change the message.4-*In Summary4.2 Understanding human behavior and needs, and their correlation with professional relationships, is necessary to practicing as a medical assistant. Understanding the various stages of human life assists you in your communication skills with patients.4-*In Summary (cont.)4.3 Communication that promotes comfort and well-being is considered positive communication. Negative communication can be a turn-off. Lack of eye contact with patients, except in specific cultures, or speaking sharply to a patient is considered negative communication. 4-*In Summary (cont.)4.4 Listening and other interpersonal skills can be improved by becoming more involved in the communication process by offering feedback or asking questions of the patient. Understand that assertive medical assistants trust their instincts. They respect their self- worth, while still making the patient feel comfortable and important. Aggressive medical assistants try to impose their positions through manipulation techniques.In Summary4.5 Therapeutic communication is the ability to communicate with patients in terms that they can understand and, at the same time, feel at ease and comfortable in what you are saying. Positive therapeutic skills can enhance communication. Be aware of negative therapeutic skills that can disrupt the communication. Recognize defense mechanisms in patients and note whether the patient is using them to cope or is not able to cope. 1-*4-*In Summary4.6 Learning about the special needs of patients and polishing your communication skills will help you become an effective communicator. This will assist you with handling diversity in the workplace, handling anxious and annoyed patients, and in dealing with patients who may have language barriers.4-*In Summary4.7 The quality of communication you have with your coworkers and your supervisor greatly influences the development of a positive or negative work climate. Use proper channels of communication. Be open-minded. Keep supervisors informed of office problems as they arise and show initiative in your work habits.4-*Often during life-altering experiences, patients and their loved ones need a shoulder to cry on or someone to comfort them. It is important for them to know support is there.—Lindsey D. Fisher (The Healers Art)End of Chapter 4
