This week reading allowed me to understand more about grief counseling and grief therapy. Grief counseling helps clients adopt healthy ways to face the reality of a loved one that has passed. Grief counseling adopt strategies such as increase reality of loss, face emotional or behavioral pain, solve any obstacles that can prevent the person from moving forward and finally finding a way to maintain a bond with the deceased. Grief therapy focuses on a deeper complexity involving grief. Therapy can continue any abnormality such as extended periods of grieving.
Holistic care includes caring for an individual as a whole by assessing their physical, psychological, spiritual, social and cultural needs and providing care in an environment which supports this philosophy (Price, 2006). Person-centred care not only involves the patient but also includes meeting the needs of the family and/or carers of the patient and involving other members of the multi-disciplinary team. The Nursing and Midwifery Council’s (NMC) (2008) Code corresponds with Price (2006) by mentioning that nurses must treat people as individuals and respond to their concerns and preferences, guaranteeing that
Each text contains interest while I read them, they also focused ideas regarding disability but the points that’ll receive attention don’t necessarily relate to each other. In Johanna Hedva’s piece, Sick Woman Theory, she discusses concepts revolving around her chronic illness and the effects of that illness on her life. For Robert McRuer, he wishes to explore ideas that explain the relationship between heterosexuality and able-bodiedness. While each text displays engaging thoughts, this paper will respond to them in different ways. For this response paper, interest lies in adding ideas to the first section of Sick Woman Theory as well as critiquing what McRuer wants to accomplish with his paper.
It was evident that an application of the theory of self-care deficit could help in the determination of Jonathan’s self-care requisites, an ability that turned out to be helpful in providing care comprehensively. Applying the theory depicted the extent to which the supportive, educative and compensatory system could be applied in helping solve the issues in a patient suffering from rheumatoid arthritis. My personal philosophy of care when dealing with my patients enabled me to address Jonathan’s case well giving it the attention it deserved. Through teamwork (one of my principles) with my colleagues including the physicians, we managed to identify the precise health issue and recommend the appropriate plan of action. I also believe that having maintained good health on my part helped me in dispensing the best possible care to
Counseling has evolved into a broader scope since 2000. It now encompasses a systematic helping process based on the principle of psychology used by the professional counselor to help clients in handling their development and challenges in modern living. Counseling includes crisis intervention, marriage and family counseling, relationship counseling, career counseling, rehabilitation counseling, mental health counseling, sexual trauma counseling, AIDS counseling, philosophical counseling, grief and bereavement counseling, substance abuse counseling, transgender counseling and others. All counselor approaches have something to offer when used by a trained counselor some theoretical approaches work better than others depending on individual needs.
Over the past one and half month, the class of PDE 502 (Counselling and Career Education) has taught me some major lessons for life in dealing with the clients in response to their emotional needs. The role of a counsellor is not unlike that of a friend where by it is nurtured by being in each other’s company, talking over everyday issues and sharing feelings. However, what sets a counsellor apart is their experience and the ability to apply counselling theories and techniques to assist people in gaining awareness, insight and explore ways of solving their own issues. The purpose of this reflection is to reflect upon the use of counselling skills, which I have applied in the role-play with the goal of establishing healthy rapport building.
Is Physical Therapy a Good Career for Me? “Physical Therapist or PT’S are health care professionals who diagnose and treat individuals of all ages, from newborns to the very oldest, who have medical problems or other health-related conditions that limit their abilities to move…”(APTA 2015). PT’s are responsible for giving a person mobility to change their live for the better through different exercises and treatments. They are also responsible for “Prevent the onset symptoms and progression of impairments, functional limitations, and disabilities that may result from diseases and disorders, conditions or injuries.”(APTA 2015) Since PT’s work with a wide range of patients they have to deal with a large range of different disabilities.

Staple or print double-sided if needed. 1. Research Questions and Hypotheses: Please list each of the research questions or hypotheses tested in the article. Summarize what the researchers are trying to learn. The main research question that the authors of this study sought to answer is if “hospice volunteers can facilitate communication about pain with family caregivers.” Studies show that, although there is a growing need for hospice nurses and physicians, there are not enough qualified workers to meet the demand.
Regular depression screening is important in the healthcare setting since it helps the physicians treat depression and employ recovery mechanisms for the patients. This report will evaluate a strength-based model of care and explore how its supports nurses to work in partnership with children. The report will also demonstrate how health promotion and health education impact the health of children and their families. Furthermore, this report will identify issues that affect children and/or families and suggest recommendations for nursing practice. A strength-based model
In addition to a medical and functional preoperative assessment, we aimed to get insight into personal preferences and motivations of a person involved in a physical therapy intervention by use of a narrative analysis of the stories of a person before THA (Mrs. A, a 76 year-old woman with severe comorbidity), her daughter and her physiotherapist. Mrs. A was mainly motivated by her will to do enjoyable social activities and stay independent. Although she has the competence to try her best to undertake those activities that make her proud, her pain and physical limitations were anti-competences that motivated her to attend health care. Although the physical therapist seemed to be aware of these personal participation goals, her main focus was on improving and evaluating functions and activities. The daughter also wanted her mother to be able to do enjoyable activities and did not see herself as an informal
