Ending an interaction (poor example)
Poor Example | Good Example
In this final section we look at ending an interaction.
Each interaction with the child or young person is important and you should strive to end an interaction constructively. Ending an interaction abruptly can have a negative impact on the child or young person’s experience.
Click on the following scene to illustrate the point further.
- The suggestion that something else was important gives the impression that talking to the child or young person was not.
- There was no suggestion that the nurse would come back or that what the child or young person was communicating was valued.
- The nurse spoke about CAMHS as if the child or young person fully understood what that meant and what an assessment by them would entail. It is likely however that this was not the case.
