The nurse must be able to discuss appropriate coping strategies with her patient and provide information in regards to their correct usage. In patients whose body reality has been altered coping strategies have been shown to be extremely effective in relieving immediate stress. (Niven, 2006) The importance of social supports should not be undermined, as active social support can provide an environment which is conducive to the integration of the patient’s new body image in society. The nurse should promote communication with both family and friends, social supports such as these can encourage the patient to view their new body reality in a positive ways. Patients with strong social supports are more liable to make progress in coping with and accepting their new body reality.

Working with the entire family allows he therapist to establish a more accurate perspective on the problem (McWhirter, et al., 2012). Though Lori may be able to abstain and begin to develop the necessary self-esteem to change problematic behavior, the family dynamic must be addressed in hopes of supporting this
Finally, both issues require the individual to obtain the life skills and coping capabilities necessary to keep things in check. The question remains, “Where can you get treatment for both your addiction and anger issues at the same time?” The reality is you might have some difficulty finding a place that deals with both addiction and anger issues. The best chance you have for finding the right treatment facility requires you to look for a place that treats addiction as the primary illness with a secondary focus on “dual diagnosis” treatment. At Healing Springs Ranch, we are proficient at treating both issues
I believe it’s important for us to be open and honest with each other, so the preceptorship can be a success. Conflict of personalities with your assigned mentor or preceptor If there is a conflict of personalities with my preceptor, I will have to bring this to the attention of the nurse manager. According to Sliter, Withrow & Jex (2015) personality might predispose some individuals to being hypersensitive to stressors and perception. Also personality might impact individuals’ perceptions of the work environment (p.3). Reassignment to a new preceptor may be necessary to make the learning process
A list by Live Smart Coaching (2012) presents the aim of counseling which are (1) it offers a safe and reflective space for us to bein to make sense of the chaos and worry that we find ourselves in, (2) it enables us to explore more on what troubles us and the past events that caused the present problem, (3) it encourages us to take a look on our thoughts, feelings and behaviors at the moment, (4) it helps us in finding ways of changing our irrational emotions that would take us to a more secure place, and lastly (4) it gives us a change to understand and learn ourselves that will enable us to be in control of our life. In addition, the Japanese Association of Counseling Science identifies the three major goals of counseling as (a) facilitating human growth by emphasizing developmental perspectives, (b) advocating for prevention, and (c) helping to solve practical problems (Grabosky, Ishii & Mase, 2012).

As mentioned in Module 3, theory often guides the helping professional’s decisions when interacting with the client. Theory, coupled with knowledge of the situation and client preferences, is used to ensure that the helping professional makes sound, practical, and efficient suggestions. Sadly, the role of the helping professional often involves heavily sensitive and emotional topics. While demonstrating empathy and care, it is imperative that a helping professional also maintain a professional demeanor.
