Motivational Interviewing is a patient centred approach which strengthens the patient’s motivation for and movement toward a specific goal by exploring and resolving ambivalence (Hettema et al. 2005). In the scenario in my digital recording, for example: the patient’s goal is to cut down/stopping drinking alcohol. A Nurse’s empathic and collaborative approach to this conversation technique supports the eliciting and discovering of the patient’s personal reasons to change (Miller & Rollnick, 2012). Four guiding principles (R.U.L.E) were devised in order for effective Motivational Interviewing to occur; resist the righting reflex, understand and explore patient’s own motivations, listen with empathy and empower patient providing hope and encouragement
To find myself in someone else’s story is a beautiful thing and I am appreciative of this experience for allowing that to happen. I understood my mother’s story in a way I had not before and I understood myself in a way I had not before during my experience as the interviewer as well as telling the story of the
The anticipation of the first born is filled with a mixture of excitement, anxiety, and pain. My pregnancy had been normal and healthy. I did not have any problems or concerns during my whole pregnancy. With my due date approaching, I expected the birth of my child would be the happiest time of my life. However, a serious of avoidable and unfortunate events caused by my doctor and nurses lead me to have a horrifying experience.
The Adoption Process is Hindering Us Thousands of couples, or individuals, across the U.S experience infertility, and with that face the heartbreaking scenario of not being able to have their own children. For these couples and individuals though there is a solution, although not an easy and always attainable one. These couples and individuals can make the decision to adopt, yet because of the inefficient process of adoption in the U.S, couples may steer away from this choice. For some couples and individuals the reality of being able to adopt doesn’t seem attainable, and with this they may experience waves of emotions from not being able to have a family. The U.S adoption process hinders couples and individuals goals of one day having
For a woman to achieve this she would need to use contraceptives for around three decades (“Contraceptive Use in the United States.”). Even with the technology that has come about recently that gives women the ability to track ovulation, medical birth control is still needed. About 61 million women in the U.S are at the age for child bearing, but about 43 million of these women are at risk for unwanted pregnancy (“Contraceptive Use in the United States.”). This means that either they do not have the means to purchase birth control, their religious beliefs restrict them from acquiring contraceptives, or a multitude of other various reasons. Couples who do not use any form of contraceptives have about an eighty-five percent chance of becoming pregnant in a year.
Everyone is entitled to choose their own lifestyle, whether they want to have a child or not. Some females who seek to have children find it easy, although some are unfortunate.

It was another instance in which Socorro would have said her emotions were clouding her judgment and her witch’s intuition. One evening she’d had enough of the waiting and the pretending. She was a girl on her own, after all. She made her own decisions. She invited the boy in and before the door was closed, he was against her, his mouth on hers.
Many children, sadly, are faced with disease and illness every day. Research has shown that with the addition of a Child Life Program to a hospital setting, children in need of care have better outcomes and their hospital experience improves exponentially. My cousin and his family benefitted from the Child Life Program at Penn State Hershey Medical Center Children’s Hospital. My interview with my aunt and cousin demonstrates that Child Life Specialists definitely can make a difference when a family encounters a child’s illness. The support and care of the Child Life Specialists assist not only the child and the parents, but the entire family. They work as liaisons with the entire medical team to relieve the stress and anxiety the hospital and
She arranged well all the steps to complete the task. Picking up and holding baby was good and the personal emotions were also involved for being gentle and patience while treating the baby. She explained the procedure for checking the temperature of milk while feeding the baby. And also the head of baby was higher than the shoulder which is good to prevent chocking.

Teen pregnancy is becoming more common. According to 94% of US adults,“Teen motherhood is considered ‘a bad thing for our society’” (Mollborn). This explains how unprepared teens are and how little they know about the choices they are making. Also, how little information is known.
