Illness Narratives in Practice: Potentials and Challenges of Using Narratives in Health-Related Contexts

What is it like to live with an illness? How do diagnostic procedures, treatments, and other encounters with medical institutions affect a patient's private and social life? By asking these types of questions, illness narratives have gained a reputation as a scientific domain in medicine in the last thirty years. Today, a patient's story plays an important role in doctor-patient communication and the development of a healing relationship. However, whereas patient experiences have been well acknowledged, methodologically reflected upon and widely collected as research data, less consideration has been invested in exploring how they work in practice. Used in the context of diagnosis, treatment, and teaching, patient stories give us a new perspective on how healthcare could be improved. Illness Narratives in Practice: Potentials and Challenges of Using Narratives in Health-related Contexts highlights the problems, challenges, and opportunities we face when using patient perspectives in practice and research in a clear format to provide readers with a comprehensive overview of this field. It investigates the epistemological foundations and communicational properties of illness narratives, as well as the pragmatic effects of using them as clinical and educational instruments. Significantly, it presents new examples from patient intakes and interviews that illustrate the disparity in communication between patients and medical professionals. The studies in this book also evaluate the experiences of medical practitioners and students who consciously use patient narratives as a tool for improved communication and diagnosis. Divided into eight sections with practical examples for medical teaching and practice, this book covers the use of patient narratives in communication training and decision making across medicine and psychotherapy. In addition, it reflects on the ethical aspects of working with a patient's personal experience of their illness, reports on cultural differences across the globe, and analyses how patients' stories are used in politics and the media. Written by scholars from multiple disciplines across clinical and theoretical fields, this rich resource provides a critical stance on the use of narratives in medical research, education, and practice.

This study examined relationships between married couples and couples’ communication patterns and theories on interpersonal communication. One hundred seventy-eight students from Washington, DC, metropolitan campuses of Strayer University participated in the study. Couples Pre-Counseling Inventory, a validated instrument, was used to examine the participants’ communication patterns; results were analyzed using SPSS. Variables studied were demographic data, communication patterns, happiness, satisfaction in the couple relationship, and several indices of personal life. Significant differences were found linking communication patterns to general and specific happiness; to satisfaction with the marital relationship; and to management of personal life. In addition, the study revealed significant differences between men and women in the sample, with women less satisfied than men on several variables. The findings thus indicate that the variables studied are related, in a complex manner, to the nature and quality of communication as a factor in many aspects of marriage and family life. The study open the door for future research considering other variables, such as ethnic, cultural, and socioeconomic status.

“Narcissistic behavior is one of the most prevalent disorders that is often admired and misunderstood in our society today,” author Rudolph Hall writes in his new book, Narcissistic Behavior in the Postmodern Era: The Study of Neuropsychology. The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders defines narcissistic personality disorder as an inflated sense of self-importance and need for constant attention. This book is designed to help people observe narcissistic behavior and to be aware of their own emotional behaviors as they struggle for survival and achieve favorable interaction with people of other cultures that are motivated by Western values. It is essential to identify narcissistic personality disorder and its trait in order to maintain homeostasis in our physical and mental processes. It is important to get help and identify the behaviors appropriately in order to avoid self-inflicted emotional disorders that inhibit personal achievement and limit a successful fulfilling existence throughout ones’ lifetime. Using the Biopsychosocial approach to understanding human behavior, Hall initiates a new perspective into the psychology of everyday life that is more reliable. Narcissistic Behavior in the Postmodern Era: The Study of Neuropsychology also aims to make psychology meaningful and relevant for introductory level students.

Nonverbal Communication in Close Relationships

View: 232

Nonverbal Communication in Close Relationships provides a synthesis of research on nonverbal communication as it applies to interpersonal interaction, focusing on the close relationships of friends, family, and romantic partners. Authors Laura K. Guerrero and Kory Floyd support the premise that nonverbal communication is a product of biology, social learning, and relational context. They overview six prominent nonverbal theories and show how each is related to bio-evolutionary or sociocultural perspectives. Their work focuses on various functions of nonverbal communication, emphasizing those that are most relevant to the initiation, maintenance, and dissolution of close relationships. Throughout the book, Guerrero and Floyd highlight areas where research is either contradictory or inconclusive, hoping that in the years to come scholars will have a clearer understanding of these issues. The volume concludes with a discussion of practical implications that emerge from the scholarly literature on nonverbal communication in relationships – an essential component for understanding relationships in the real world. Nonverbal Communication in Close Relationships makes an important contribution to the development of our understanding not only of relationship processes but also of the specific workings of nonverbal communication. It will serve as a springboard for asking new questions and advancing new theories about nonverbal communication. It is intended for scholars and advanced students in personal relationship study, social psychology, interpersonal communication, nonverbal communication, family studies, and family communication. It will also be a helpful resource for researchers, clinicians, and couples searching for a better understanding of the complicated roles that nonverbal cues play in relationships.
