Doctors fight 'gag orders' over fracking chemicals
American Medical News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Under a new Pennsylvania law, natural gas companies must tell physicians the substances patients might have come into contact with.

Healing With Language: Congruence
ICIM    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Unless you are reading, language is not a "stand-alone" form of communication. It occurs in a context that includes nonverbal components. The most frequently cited study [Mehrabian and Ferris' 1967 article in the Journal of Consulting Psychology, 31:3, pp. 248-252] concluded that meaning was determined primarily by nonverbal components:
  • Physiology and appearance — 55 percent
  • Paralanguage — 38 percent
  • Language — 7 percent
Paralanguage consists of vocal output other than words, including rate of speech, note of voice, pauses and similar nonlanguage components. A number of subsequent studies have confirmed the relative importance of nonverbal and verbal aspects of communication in determining how believable you are when communicating with family, friends, clients or patients.

We are believable when our verbal and nonverbal messages are congruent, meaning that they say the same thing. If you say, "I have been successful in treating this condition countless times," while shaking your head "no," the nonverbal message is what most likely will be believed.

You can often discover what you really believe about what you are saying by paying attention to the nonverbal behavior that accompanies your speech. It is also worth paying attention to the nonverbal behavior of others when they are communicating something of importance. When you ask a question, pay attention to the nonverbal. When asking, "Do you understand?" or "Do you agree?" an unconscious negative headshake will be more honest than an answer.

If you must provide clients or patients with warnings for legal reasons, such as, "I am required to tell you that this surgery may result in death," you may wish to use the power of the nonverbal to help the individual believe in a positive outcome. As you say the words, give just a tiny negative headshake. His or her unconscious will read that as, "You can come through this just fine."

Send your questions about communication to Joel P. Bowman or Debra Basham, co-developers of SCS Matters, LLC. We will provide answers to those for you.

Overtreatment is taking a harmful toll
The New York Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article

Italian court rules MMR vaccine did trigger autism
Natural Health News via IBCMT    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
An Italian court has ruled there is a link between the MMR vaccine and autism. In what may be a groundbreaking decision, the Italian Court of Rimini has ruled that causation between an MMR vaccine and the resulting autism in a young child "has been established." The unnamed child received the vaccine in March 2004 and on returning home immediately developed adverse symptoms. During the next year, the child regressed, receiving the autism diagnosis one year later and is now 100 percent disabled by the disease. More
