(NICE, 2014) The ﬁrst known controlled trial study on the efﬁcacy of systemic family therapy at the Milan State University. A longitudinal prospective study was conducted to evaluate the clinical effectiveness of systemic family therapy in the treatment of patients suffering from schizophrenia, as compared to a control case sample composed of patients undergoing routine psychiatric treatment. At the end of 2 years, an improved clinical course and a better pharmacological compliance in the group of patients with systemic family therapy was shown. Hence it is vital to advocate for family psycho-education during the early phase of treatment for the patients with schizophrenia and their
The Soloist, with its root in a real life story, offers a remarkable opportunity to observe a number of very essential disputes in the long-term management of schizophrenia. The film gives us a good example of how the effect of the illness can have on the words, thoughts, perceptions and behavior of sufferers and highlights the fluctuations that occur naturally in the disorder. It also elevates the topic of treatment and the individual’s right to choose whether or not he or she wants to take medication. As a training tool for many doctors to seek practice with patients of their own, this film could provide a wonderful starting point for a discussion about when the use of the Mental Health Act in the United Kingdom becomes suitable and when
This essay will address what the medical model of mental disorders is, and the difference between the minimal and strong claim. I will argue that there is good reason to reject both the minimal and strong claim, and that there is an alternative version of the medical model that will balance out the

Evidence-based practice (EBP) is applying a common method to find the outcome which are relation of the treatment of individual patients by means of using scientific research (Tanenbaum, 2005). Moreover, EBP has also become a clinical practice and scholarship in clinical decision-making tools, such as improving the patient outcomes and quality of care (Alzayyat, 2014). However, EBP is intensity the subject of debate in mental health field. However, evidence-based practice (EBP) is an intensity debate in the field of mental health (Tanenbaum, 2005). A number of challenges to the improvement of evidence-based practice, they are as follows, The major challenge is difficult to determine the direction of clinical decisions within the domains of
The present essay will take into account the opinionated discussion on the issues of the psychiatric reliability and validity of the classification of mental disorders including labelling individuals with diagnosis and its effects, approaches such as DSM II that are used in order to asses this and the ideas of development and solutions on how DSM II can be improved as a medical approach. This material will be a critical evaluation of the research article “On being sane in insane places” by David L. Rosenhan (1973). As known, for a medical approach that is used as a diagnostic tool, it should fulfil its purpose and correctly diagnose an individual who is suffering from a mental disorder, since reliability and validity are two very essential
Dialectical behavior therapy is a comprehensive treatment combining “individual psychotherapy, group skills training, telephone coaching, and a therapist consultation team” (Lineham & Wilks, 2015) which was originally developed by Dr. Marsha Linehan for clients who were highly suicidal. Based on empirical studies, this paper will review the effectiveness of dialectical behavior therapy treatment within various disorders; borderline personality disorder and suicidal and self-harming behaviors, posttraumatic stress disorder, eating disorders, as well as a brief study of using dialectical behavior therapy to treat adolescents with substance use disorder. Review of Empirical Studies Borderline Personality Disorder The majority of available research
The first learning objective that is relevant to this practice experience is “BNUR 4.2 Individualised Client Assessment and Care Decisions”. Hoarding disorder is a relatively new diagnosis in the DSM-5 so assessment protocols and policies may not yet be standardised in hospital settings such as the suicide risk assessment. Assessing the patient’s environment during their hospital stay, and seeking out information about assessment tools will impact care decisions that are employed by the nurse. S.W. showed insight about his hoarding behavior so he would have been a good candidate for referral to a hoarding specific cognitive behavioural therapist or a life skills coach to address the independent living difficulties after parents passed away.
In response to these national trends as well as the local shortage of qualified pediatric mental health professionals, The Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at The Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center (HMC), in collaboration with the Department of Pediatrics, developed a Pediatric Psychiatry Collaborative Care. Proved feedback from this project will enable us to identify areas for improvement of the collaborative clinic model, introduce new screening tool if indicated and adjust the model to better fit the need of
Introduction The prevention of patient-to-patient assault in an inpatient psychiatric unit is essential for the safety of patients and staff (Perez, 2014). The aim of this quantitative pilot study is to decrease patient-on-patient assaults which, in the long run, may improve patient safety during hospitalization (Staggs, 2015). This chapter discusses the study design and population plan and describes procedures for implementing the project, data collection, data analysis, the institutional review board (IRB) process, and challenges that may occur with initiating the quality improvement project. Design The design of this project is a quasi-experimental pre- and post-test quantitative pilot quality improvement project. Participants if this
Instead, each type is specifically tailored towards the needs of individuals along with the addiction problem one is experiencing. Psychotherapy, for example, is specifically useful in the treatment of mental health conditions that usually string along with prescription drug abuse. In the case of psychotherapy, psychotherapists explore psychological means of drug addiction treatment simply because medical means aren’t sufficient and involving enough. Psychotherapy in its own is a perfect example of an individual therapy program, which is mostly preferable to drug addicts who have serious problems, mostly those of dual diagnosis. This means that individual therapy is very useful in the treatment of conditions, such as depression and bipolar disorder.
