therapeutic communication in mental health
- 0Nov 29, '07 by frezhi
Does anyone have decent websites or ideas with therapeutic communication in mental health? I have trouble with this and am trying to get all the information I can. Are there any examples of therapeutic communication that I could look up or read? Does anyone have to do process recordings? I have to do one in mental health and I only did one so far in school and it was in my 1st semester and I am in my 3rd semester.
