User: Explain how individuals from different backgrounds may use communication methods in different ways in health and social care

Weegy: Careful consideration needs to be taken when communicating with people from different backgrounds so as not to offend or confuse them. Some countries may speak more formally, others informally. [ So when we speak to people we must be aware not to be over/too familiar. When we communicate with people from different backgrounds we should use the right intonation (gestures and body language) so that they know that we are being friendly towards them and not just 'going through the motions' when dealing with them. The speed of which we speak could hinder others to misinterpret us, thereby causing misunderstandings, and we should always use plain English rather than jargon that only people who are familiar to the profession can understand as this can lead to misunderstanding. Some phrases that we use every day may be offensive to people of certain cultures or religions and this is all the more reason that we treat everyone equally, fairly and without bias. Also different hand gestures mean different things depending on the country that the person is from so what may be a friendly gesture to us may be an insulting one to them. The language barrier doesn’t only apply to different cultures and countries, it can also apply to areas of the UK. A word we use in the north east can have a totally different meaning in Bristol or Glasgow. A person who has a background of poverty may not be familiar with more complex conversations due to poor education and so it is important that we speak to them at a level that are comfortable with so as not to intimidate them. ]

etify barriers to effective communication
Weegy: Physical Barriers - One of the major barriers of communication in a workplace is the physical barrier. Physical barriers in an organization includes large working areas that are physically separated from others. [ Other distractions that could cause a physical barrier in an organization are the environment, background noise Language - Inability to converse in a language that is known by both the sender and receiver is the greatest barrier to effective communication. When a person uses inappropriate words while conversing or writing, it could lead to misunderstanding between the sender and a receiver. Emotions - Your emotions could be a barrier to communication if you are engrossed in your emotions for some reason. In such cases, you tend to have trouble listening to others or understanding the message conveyed to you. A few of the emotional interferences include hostility, anger, resentfulness and fear. Lack of Subject Knowledge - If a person who sends a message lacks subject knowledge then he may not be able to convey his message clearly. The receiver could misunderstand his message, and this could lead to a barrier to effective communication. Stress - One of the major communication barriers faced by employees in most of the organization is stress. When a person is under immense stress, he may find it difficult to understand the message, leading to communication distortion. At the time of stress, our psychological frame of mind depends on our beliefs, experiences, goals and values. Thus, we fail to realize the essence of communication. ] (More)
