Research on cognitive behavioral interventions in chronic pain involves CBT, relaxation therapy, biofeedback, or some combination of the three. Generally, some form of CBT is combined with either relaxation training or biofeedback. Assessment Patients with chronic pain need to feel understood by those who are providing care to them. On the other hand, a therapist requires relevant and adequate information about the patient from a bio-psychosocial perspective to establish therapeutic goals. Therefore, a comprehensive psychological assessment is a prerequisite for CBT and other interventions (Please refer to chapter “Psychological Assessment of Patients with Chronic Pain”).
The DNP scholarly project, identifies, evaluates care delivery models and the need for change. In My role as a DNP practice scholar, I will address the critical skills essential for translating the evidence-based care into practice with the aim of improving systems of care within the clinical setting (Vincent, Johnson, Velasquez, & Rigney, 2010). Besides, the practice competencies and research I will use the nursing skills to measure the outcomes of the affected population as well as communities. I will apply both clinical investigation and theory with affected individuals and families and implement nursing strategies to improve patient outcomes in nursing homes. I will achieve this by focusing on evidence-based practice, evaluation of results from nursing practices, and focusing on quality improvement (Vincent et al., 2010).
In addition, professionals can understand their patients’ needs by understanding the social framework of the biological illness. In addition, practitioners can then identify the similarities between their practice by viewing how “The focus on physical, emotional, and social interaction and spirituality by the practitioner of curanderismo is consistent with the holistic values of nursing as a profession” (Amerson 2). In summary, curanderismo is used to overcome the social barriers, since it can increase cultural
The core psychoeducational principle is education has a role in emotional and behavioral change. Having knowledge about the illness would help increase their understanding about the illness and symptoms. Particularly in group therapy, having all patients in the group informed about their condition would mean expanding awareness. Furthermore, psychoeducation can be given to patient family or who come along with the patients for treatment. Psychoeducation could begin with an introduction regarding the illnesses or conditions that the group demands.
The efficacy of appropriate treatment for addiction disorder and substance abuse may be determine by drug and alcohol counselors, primary healthcare providers, social workers, and others. Therefore, it is necessary for competent and those properly trained to utilize the necessary tools needed for proper assessments, diagnosis, treatment planning and future referrals. Careful selection on these instruments may be influenced by cultural, race, and gender (Van Wormer & Davis, 2018). Furthermore, counselors or other clinicians would also need to consider the reliability and validity these instruments prior to selection. Two assessment tools The Addiction Severity Index (ASI) is a well-versed instrument I resonate with for addiction, because of its developmental history.
“The Solution-Focused Brief Therapy approach to helping clients provides a set of therapeutic techniques for building client competencies and helps clients discover workable solutions to their mental health problems (Berg & De Jong, 2008).” An emphasis of Solution-Focused Brief Therapy is on the process of developing a future solution rather than the past manifestation of the problem, with the focus being on identifying past successes and exceptions to the problem, as well as identifying new and novel ways of responding in future efforts to solve problems (Franklin et al., 2001). The aims are to create a context for change where hope, competence, and positive expectancies for change increase and a client can co-construct with the therapist
The study will provide empirical findings on the major socio-cultural, Biological, psychological, variables mental health professionals should consider to effectively understand, diagnose, assess, and subsequently treat paranoid schizophrenic patients to cope with the consequences and or even to bring about complete healing and ultimate reintegration to the community. It will also sensitize and enlighten specific sub-specialty and specialty mental health professionals such as: psychologists, psychiatrists, and community health service providers to broaden their scope of viewing psychotic patients, especially paranoid schizophrenic ones from various modalities so as to provide appropriate treatment and furthermore, to create cohesiveness and
The treatment is accomplished through a goal oriented, safe and intensive program that focuses on promoting cognitive-oriented and trauma-informed treatment approaches. As I mentioned some of the expressive therapies involved is art therapy, which enhances creativity. Art-making process includes drawing, painting, collages and 3-d structures. The goal of art therapy is to assist in developing skills including problem solving, identification and expression of feelings, emotions and social interaction/relationships. The goal behind dance therapy is to connect body and mind in a way that encourages healing and growth of the individual.
Instead, I believe people should look at mental illness in terms of another characteristic that the person encompasses, that makes him or her unique. I think once mental health stigmas are reduced, more people will seek professional help and people will be more aware of supporting those that are suffering from a mental illness. Hopefully with increased awareness, more professional help and institutionalizations will be offered in order to aid in the recovery of those with mental
