Annotated Bibliography The projected study attempts to design a research that would examine the competence of mindfulness therapy. The design would evaluate the progress of the selected individuals who are receiving mindfulness therapy in comparison to those receiving another kind of therapy over a given period of time. The following articles will discuss about the effects of mindfulness therapy to different kinds of patients. Fjorback, L.O., Arendt, M, Ornobol, E., Walach, H., Rehfeld, E., Schroder, A., & Fink, P. (2012). Mindfulness therapy for somatization disorder and functional somatic syndromes – Randomized trial with one-year follow-up.
Jo's problem by Mr. Tom which could have had bigger repercussions in the end depending on the phobia's severity. Effective communication coupled with team work is the basis for the delivery of high quality services and patient safety care. Failures in communication are one of the main causes of inadvertent patient harm. As an anaesthetic nurse trainee being confronted with unexpected scenarios out of my comfort zone is an enrichment for my knowledge and practice. In this particular situation, I can conclude that Mrs. Jo could have had a better approach regarding her phobia and her level of anxiety, from the onset of her pre-assessment with Mr. Tom.
EBP demands the client be seen as an individual and their unique circumstances be considered in the application of evidence based care. This tailored care fits well with my current work as a midwife and my studies in Child and Family Health where partnership models of care
To somewhat contradiction and agreement, Sacks states "some areas of the visual cortex may be reallocated and used to process sound and touch"(Sacks,330). In contrast to Johnson, it is clear that the pacemaker, our brain, allows the visual cortex to reallocate to heighten other senses, which allows the blind people to adjust their new way of life. However, to some extent, Sacks statement bolsters Johnson's case that self-organizing system is a very complex system, just like the complex structure of our brain, which acts as a pacemaker for us. The complexity of a structure is indeed dependent on how efficiently each component is able to carry out its functions, and structures which are deemed complex have different components which it is dependent upon to perform its functions. The idea of pacemaker itself cannot be disregarded in the making of
Patients with generalized anxiety disorder are found to have unrealistic view of danger. Many of them fear being in pain, harmed and have repeated thoughts of death, suffering in pain, being in danger and getting damaged mentally and physically in anyway.Psychodynamic ? Caused from our psychological alerting mechanism that arises when patient 's unconscious motivations clash with the conscious mind of the patient.Environmental ? Stress and trauma are brought to be the cause of generalized anxiety disorder. People who had negative experience might develop a trauma which might cause anxiety.
There are many assessments used to determine whether or not a client is a high risk for suicide. For example, the Beck depression inventory consists of 21 questions to determine if an individual is depressed which can be helpful since depression is linked to suicide (Kanel, 2015). 4. How comfortable would you be in asking the questions necessary to provide the proper interventions and following through on the interventions? Explain your answer, and provide examples to illustrate it.
Again the MMPI-2’s use is to determine validly in ones testimony. In many cases, an individual may “fake good” or “fake bad” to gain more compassion in a case where personal injury/lose is otherwise allocated. “One situation often encountered is one in which the litigants produce extremely defensive profiles, that is, deny psychological problems in order to produce a “credible” physical problem” (Butcher, 1990). According to Ben-Porath and Graham and Hall and Hirschman and Zaragoza (1995),… psychopathology and personality evaluation, psychologist are being asked more frequently to serve as witness in the court to provide expert opinion…..whether the basis of an individual’s psychological claims is credible; whether current or past adjustment problems that a litigant might have experienced could have an impact on the current claim; whether an individual might be experiencing documentable and disabling stress-related symptoms; and whether the symptoms an individual is reporting could be attributed to lifelong chronic
Nursing process provides a framework for clinical decision-making, which helps to guide care and promote critical thinking. Improvements patients participation in care by promoting patient autonomy and individualized care. ADPIE is an acronym that is used to help nurses remember the steps in order: Assessment, Diagnosis, Planning, Implementation, and Evaluation. In the assessment phase, nurses collect subjective and objective data about the patient in a systematic way through observations, interview questions, and physical examinations. Data is collected, organized, verified, and recorded.
1.2 Significance of the Study The researchers intend to develop competencies for mental health nurse. Moreover, the researches would also like to find out the roles and responsibilities, knowledge, skill and attitudes or behaviors of mental health nurses. Furthermore, the study would also be beneficial to the following: Patients with mental health problems. The primary recipients for the effects and benefits of the study will be the patients with mental health problems. They are the ones who are being directly addressed with nursing care by mental health nurses.
Treatment Modality Rationale When determining what intervention would be most appropriate, I was able to refer to National Institute of Health and learned that when medication is combined with therapy such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, effective change can occur for clients diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Due to the numerous presenting problems of SW, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy would assist SW to “modify dysfunctional thinking and behavior toward solving current problems” (Beck). In other words, this treatment modality would target SW’s presenting problems to not only reach her goals but provide techniques to alleviate some of the more serious problems including suicidal ideation and substance use. Prioritization of Problems SW’s presenting
Notwithstanding strong proof for CBT 's viability and broad selection, the ways by which it is functional in the treatment of depression are not clear so far (Hollon et al., 2006) (Longmore, Worrell, 2007). Cognitive behavioral models deal with the part of human behaviors and thoughts through the development, support, and also, treatment of depression. Beck, Rush, Shaw, and Emery 's cognitive model which was developed in 1979, proposes that thoughts that are dysfunctional, core views, and data preparing predispositions are precursor to and increment hazard for wretchedness, and that CBT treats depression by evolving these. Behavioral segments of CBT (Beck et al., 1979) and behavioral actuation (Hopko, Lejuez, Le Page, Hopko, and McNeil, 2003) (Martell, Addis, and
Cognitive therapies have found means to help clients identify and challenge their negative thoughts and dysfunctional belief symptoms. Whereas psychodynamic approaches, helped clients recognize their maladaptive coping strategies and the sources of their unconscious conflicts. They help free
Objective #5, synthesizing research is the back bone of good nursing. We have been taught that every action we take as nurses should be evidence based in order to deliver the best most effective nursing care. Throughout the nursing curriculum we have written a various evidence based papers which have molded our nursing practices and the way we deliver care. Artifact #1 is an in-depth look at research on the myocardial infarction (MI) protocol, how it was developed, and its effectiveness. The paper was written for the Health promotion III course.
One characteristic appearing in all three disorders is the concept of worrying. Individuals with GAD are often described to worry indiscriminately about everything, their concerns are often similar to those among society but the degrees to which they worry vary significantly. Comparably, PTSD is a condition that involves significant worrying, often about reliving a traumatic occurrence or experiencing a flashback. Like GAD and PTSD, those with OCD also experience worrying, particularly towards specific thoughts, images or impulses that they effort to suppress. Commonly, individuals with OCD worry about perfection, aggressive or sexual thoughts and
Therefore, there is a need to utilize a more comprehensive approach in stuttering treatment, including both traditional aspects such as fluency shaping, in addition to cognitive restructuring approaches. One cognitive restructuring approach is cognitive behavioral therapy. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a psychological and anxiety reducing treatment approach, which mainly centers on coaching the individual who stutters to monitor his or her speech in addition to viewing their stutter as a component of their speech rather than their identity. (Blomgren, 2010). The main components of CBT include “exposure, cognitive restructuring, behavioral experiments, and attentional training” (Menzies, O’Brian, Onslow, & Packman, 2009, p. 189).
