Summary Recently a group of therapist administered the SAFER v. 3 to assess MM’s safety in her two-story home in Blue Bell, PA. After completing the assessment it was determined that MM has several areas that were deemed either “mild” or “moderate” problem areas. Much of this has to do with her intellectual disabilities or her mild CP, which causes her to toe walk. Of note, however, is the face that MM lives with her two parents and has an aide that comes to her home four times a week. Without her parents providing support she would most certainly have scored differently on some areas of the assessment. MM’s first area in which she experiences mild problems is in functional mobility.

In this theory the case of a 24 year old woman named Ana will be used. Ana’s goals will be to differentiate herself to promote herself and interpersonal dimensions of self. This will help reduce her anxiety and thus relieve her symptoms of worry about work, her husband, raising her child alone, and other troublesome patterns. This theory is appropriate for Ana as it will relieve her emotional dependence on her husband who is away and grant her the promotion of self to be a current single mother. Theory Duration The Bowen family therapy approach is considered to be a long-term form of therapy (Withers, 2015).

Apart from the protagonist, the story introduces two characters that play a major role in Eduardo’s life. Eduardos’ mother, a hardworking woman, is introduced as a housekeeper from Weslaco, Texas. Throughout the story, the readers were able to see the mothers’ character not settle for less. She was introduced to many opportunities to follow her dreams and had a great support system encouraging her. “After six months of training, Mom was on her own and held the job title X-Ray Technician,” (Rice, 2011, p. 317) this shows the tremendous effort to achieve her goals.

We became good friends and we had a lot to relate to between each other. As a victim of the Shah’s regime I knew how difficult life had been, and still was. She was haunted just like myself and although we quickly became close with each other, she moved back to Iran to her Mother and younger brother after roughly a year in London. So here I am, 43 years old, approximately 30 years after this terrible event, alone and scarred by the events of the Islamic Revolution.

The study chosen discussed patients’ needs during the year after a suicide attempt. The study was conducted as a secondary analysis instead of a primary analysis. Secondary analysis is characterized as an examination and translation an original research study. The technique for composing secondary research is to gather detailed research information that is important from the original research study and translate the essential information found in that particular study (study.com) This study was considered a randomized study.

My grandmother was a nurse. For thirty years she cared compassionately for her patients, and for three years she watched my demented grandfather receive lackluster care before he died. My experiences as a patient were vastly different from my grandparents’. The care I received and the compassion I was shown led me to pursue nursing as a profession. The discrepancy between our accounts of care shows that although nurses are compassionate, there is opportunity for growth.
She overcomes the losses of several important people in her life, and moves on to become a better person. At one point, James says, “My mother is the only individual I have ever known who has been in the process of moving on for ten years straight” (McBride 268). Ruth was crippled by the losses of both Andrew and Hunter, and became loose with her parenting style. Eventually, after many years, she got a grip and began to parent her children. Although there were rough patches, she overcomes the losses of her husbands.
One time recently she was my ‘marigold’ and helped me through my tough times was when my mom’s friend was moving into our house. Emma has been through a lot of the same stuff as me, both of our parents are divorced so we have a few things in common with that. So, a few months ago my mom was telling me how one of her friends,that’s a guy, will be moving in with us. I immediately texted Emma and she was helping me through it. I didn’t want anyone moving in because I didn’t want him to take my mom away from me.
I was given the privilege to shadow Kerry Pullman, RN on the Med Surge/Telemetry unit at Liberty Hospital. Kerry has been an RN for two years after four years as a certified nurse aid and 3 years as a licensed nurse. Kerry has been working on the med surge/ telemetry unit for almost a year after working in long term care, primary care, urgent care, orthopedics and surgery. When asked Kerry stated the hardest part of being a new nurse was “old nurses” she said that often the old nurses will “eat their young”. We started the day by getting report on Kerry’s patients from the previous shift then going over the patients charts to make sure we had all the information we needed for her patients to provide the best care possible.
