Process Communication Model (PCM)

PCM is designed to aid in the recognition and understanding of different personality types and support successful communication. Participants learn about the six personality types in order to recognise the effects of stress and distress in the clinical setting. Distress behaviours for all six personality types are predictable and sequential. During the workshop participants learn about the impacts of distress on patient safety, as all personality types make mistakes when under distress. Participants learn how to distinguish between bullying behaviours and distress, as well as how to feed the psychological needs of their colleagues in order to invite them out of distress, so that positive communication is restored and patient care is not impacted.
