Answer:

Answer:

The gestures and body language must be carefully used in the health care system. This is because different cultures have different meaning of a particular gesture. The hand gestures, eye contact and the personal touch symbolize a different meaning in different cultures.
If a health care worker has a loud voice and waves his hands in front of a patient from Cambodia, it can cause fear and insecurity in the Cambodian patient. The different positions of hands on the body have different meaning in Cambodia. In Cambodia, people do not shake hands.
They use a variety of hand positions to treat people of different age groups. In order to help the co-worker, the patient must be told about the difference in the cultures. The worker should be suggested to respect the patient's culture and customs.

Free
Essay
Answer:

Answer:

The defense mechanism is the way through which mind avoids the anxiety that has developed during a tense situation. The mind can divert any unpleasant thinking with the help of this mechanism. The defense mechanism helps in dealing with different people. The defense mechanisms include forgetting, denial, repression, rejection, and rationalization.
Rationalization is the kind of defense mechanism in which the mind does not accept a situation and protects its ego. The mind avoids the true reasons behind a situation and console itself. Through rationalization, a person can protect the self-esteem. Many examples of rationalization can be found in the daily life.
For example, a student, who has scored poor marks in an examination, blamed the teacher or the syllabus, and avoid the true reason behind it. The reason behind getting low scores was the lack of preparation. The student blamed other people rather accepting the failure.
