The patient orally recounts the traumatic event whilst the therapist records the story the way the patient conveys it. The atmosphere of controlled exposure to the trauma ensures no sudden overwhelming emotional responses by the patient (Peri and Gofman, 2014). Throughout the procedure, the patient and therapist work together to reveal the personal significance of the event. The patient is able to gain new insight into the misinterpretations of the trauma, as illustrated in Ellis’ ABC model, which may have resulted in obsessive
Objective: the aims of this study to evaluate the efficacy of Tamsulosin 0.2mg in post shock wave lithotripsy of renal pelvic Stone ≤ 2 cm. Patients and methods: Prospective randomized placebo-controlled double-blind clinical study was conducted in shock wave lithotripsy (SWL) outpatient unit on 106 patients .After successful SWL they were divided into, two groups; Placebo group and Tamsulosin 0.2mg group. Then follow up for 2, 4 and 6 weeks all patients completed the follow-up period except 6 patients were excluded from the study. Results Stone criteria of both groups showed no significant difference.
This was a quasi-experimental study performed over a six-month time period. This study looked to determine if a standardized hourly rounding process would improve efficiency, patient satisfaction, and quality and safety of care compared to less standardized processes. The study was conducted on a 32-be cardiovascular surgery unit. To implement the standardized rounding, staff participated in a four-hour educational workshop, a patient/family awareness poster was placed in each patient room, charting was required in the electronic patient record, and coaching and mentoring was done throughout to keep the staff on the right track. This study focused on efficiency of care through the use of call lights and nurses’ steps per shift, the quality and safety of care by readmission rates and fall rates, and patient satisfaction through a questionnaire.
There are numerous, well-documented studies that identify predictors of postoperative pain. These predictors are significant in educating both practitioners and patients. ElMubarak, Abu-bakr & Ibrahim (2010) investigated a cohort of 234 patients. They found that patients who undergo root canal therapy with a history of pre-operative pain have 15.9% incidence of post-operative pain within 24 hours post-treatment, compared to 7.1% incidence in those with no reported pre-operative pain. In a meta-analysis by Pak & White (2011) confirmed that the incidence of postoperative pain was greatest in patients who presented with pre-operative pain.
If patients are unable to trust their therapist completely, then it is likely that they will not be as open during their sessions, which will make it difficult for the therapist to accurately diagnose and treat the patients. The decision by the court places the therapist in a difficult position. A therapist could utilize the ethical principle of beneficence, defined as acting in ways that benefit another and prevents harm, in determining the best way to act to benefit both the patient and protect the third party. Per the ruling of the court, “when a therapist determines, or pursuant to the standards of his profession should determine, that his patient presents a serious danger of violence to another,” he is required to warn the victim of that “danger” (Felthous, 2006, p. 339). With the court’s establishment of the duty to warn, the ability of the therapist to provide appropriate treatment may be limited because of the potential for breach of
No patient is going to be willing to take treatment if they continuously come to the same gray office doing the same thing. There are new methods waiting to be discovered. More efficient, more active, and more appealing to the patients. The patients and the people are the business and its time to reinvent how people treat depression in physical
Neglected) What he is trying to say is that when people are researching people even when they are trying their best to make sure the group is diverse you can never call it a declaration of a universal psychological principle because in most cases you are still only representing 2 or 3 sample or humans. According to The Neglected 95%, a Challenge to Psychology's Philosophy of Science, Haeffel and colleagues, "they claimed that I suffer from a "fundamental misunderstanding about basic research" and that my position is "akin to asking why medical research continues to focus on growing stem cells when there are more daunting problems such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease" (p. 570)." (The Neglected) Arnett's claims that Haeffel's response to his claim that basic processes research value is wrong and the relation between basic research and human problems is not very clear even to a research psychologist. I have
In a research study conducted by Knight, she found that in One hundred ninety-two social workers, eighty-five percent on no occasion or on a rare occasion shared personal information to the client (2012). Knight further found, that participants were far more likely to allow their clients see their emotional reaction to the subject matter that was being presented; specifically, the research revealed that forty percent of participants often allowed clients to see their emotional reaction to the subject matter that was shared (2012). Lastly, in this study Knight found that the social worker had an optimistic attitude and that eight percent felt comfortable participating in self-disclosure (2012). The research revealed that overall social workers have a positive attitude towards self-disclosure and social workers readily show emotions in the interview process even though the social workers did not disclose personal information to their
Aims The aim of this study was to apply Bandura social learning theory in a model for identifying personal and environmental factors that predict health-promoting self-care behaviors in people with pre-diabetes. Background The theoretical basis of health-promoting self-care behaviors must be examined to obtain evidence-based knowledge that can help improve the effectiveness of pre-diabetes care. However, such behaviors are rarely studied in people with pre-diabetes.
Although I was able to pass the class, and the passing grade on my AP test meant I got my grade boosted to an ‘A’ automatically, the failure I felt in the first couple of months was unlike anything I had experienced at that point. If I had not been desperate to find a better way to study, I wouldn’t have discovered that music soundtrack, and I might never have discovered Sierra Boggess and her powerful quotes. Even though I wasn’t happy at the time with my abysmal test and quiz scores, I’m glad I was able to learn this lesson that I am already enough, as it has changed my entire outlook on life so much. Now the next time I’m disappointed with a test score, or angry with myself for messing something up, I will be able to remind myself that I am always
The participants were randomly assigned to view one of three types of videos: a gain-framed (the benefits of getting HP vaccination), loss-framed (the negative effects of not getting vaccinated), and control group (Gerend & Shepherd, 2012). Gerend and Shepherd (2012) conducted pre and post-test survey to assess the HBM and TPB constructs and background knowledge, including physician’s recommendation. After ten months, they surveyed whether participants completed HPV (Gerend & Shepherd, 2012). Gerend and Shepherd (2012) estimated the relationship between HPV uptake and each construct of the theories with and without risk/protective factors, such as a cost of vaccination or physician’s recommendation. They found that the rate of vaccination were similar whereas perceived susceptibility and perceived benefits varied across the three groups.
88 adolescents age 11 to 22 who had suffered mild trauma to the head. 45 of the teens were told to rest 24 to 48 hours and then slowly return to their normal routine. 43 teens were more restricted for 5 days they weren’t allowed to do much of anything or go to
Hello Dr. Whalen and class, The scientist-practitioner model of practice and applied behavior analysis share some of the same commonalities. The scientist-practitioner model and ABA both have foundations that psychologists engage in psychological theory, field work, and research mythology (LeJeune & Luoma, 2015). The scientist-practitioner model urges therapist to use empirical research that influences their ABA. Therefore, this will allow therapist to continue advancing and improving the ABA field (Furthermore, they both share commonalities when it comes to identifying behaviors (dependent variables), experimental manipulation (independent variables), and evaluating treatment effectiveness.
