Holistic Communication: A caring, healing process that calls forth the full use of

self in interacting with another. It incorporates the constructs and processes of therapeutic communication within a framework that acknowledges the infinite, spiritual, and energetic nature of Being, the centrality of being heart-centered, and the importance of intention, self-knowledge, transcendent presence, and intuition in our interactions. (Dossey & Keegan, 2016)

Therapeutic Communication: A goal-directed form of communication used to achieve goals that promote client health and well-being. Empathy, unconditional regard, genuineness, respect, concern, caring, and compassion are conveyed through active listening, active observing, focusing, restating, reflecting, and interpreting. (Dossey & Keegan, 2016)
