Abstract

Anxiety is a common feeling experienced by the elderly, especially due to changes that occur in their lives. Situations such as retirement, loss of a life partner, health problems, and physical limitations can trigger persistent feelings of anxiety. Acupressure is a technique that originates from ancient Chinese medical traditions, which involves applying pressure to specific points on the body using the fingers or special tools. The potential of acupressure in reducing anxiety in the elderly in Hobong Village, Jayapura Regency, Indonesia, is an interesting topic to be explored. The implementation of community service is carried out through 3 stages of the implementation process, namely preparation, implementation, and evaluation. As many as 100 respondents participated in counseling on the potential of acupressure in reducing anxiety in the elderly.

Abstract

Introduction: Schizophrenia is a complex mental disorder that affects an individual's thoughts, perceptions, and behaviors. Therapeutic communication in schizophrenic patients refers to the communication approach used by health professionals or therapists to interact with schizophrenic patients with the aim of assisting them in recovery and improving their quality of life. This study aimed to explore forms of therapeutic communication that could be used to improve improvements in schizophrenia patients. Methods: The literature search process was carried out on various databases (PubMed, Web of Sciences, EMBASE, Cochrane Libraries, and Google Scholar) regarding therapeutic communication and schizophrenia. The search was performed using the terms "therapeutic communication" OR "psychoeducation" OR "psychotherapy" AND "schizophrenia”. Results: Among all studies included in the review, there were three qualitative studies and one observational study. In addition, the study did not provide information on whether there were deviations from the intervention data, bias in measuring outcomes, and bias in the selection of reported outcomes. Conclusion: Therapeutic communication can be adapted to the individual needs of schizophrenic patients. To build a strong therapeutic alliance, open conversation, trust, and respect play a fundamental role, with the ultimate goal of building a partnership to optimize patient outcomes.

Abstract

The aging process can cause changes in physical, cognitive, and social aspects. Some seniors may experience memory problems, speech difficulties, or hearing difficulties. These factors can affect their ability to communicate effectively, especially in a medical environment that is often complex and full of technical terms. In addition to physical challenges, older adults may also face feelings of loneliness, social isolation, or feelings of being unappreciated. This study aimed to explore the principles and strategies of effective therapeutic communication in interacting with the elderly. The literature search process was carried out on various databases (PubMed, Web of Sciences, EMBASE, Cochrane Libraries, and Google Scholar) regarding therapeutic communication in the elderly. This study follows the preferred reporting items for systematic reviews and meta-Analysis (PRISMA) recommendations. Therapeutic communication with the elderly is a communication approach that is empathetic, caring, respects patient autonomy, and uses language that is simple, clear, and easy to understand. Honesty and openness in conveying information about health conditions and prognosis are also important. Avoid giving false hope, but keep focusing on efforts and steps that can be taken to improve the quality of life for the elderly.
