Each of these therapy methods is unique and all can provide the guidance and support they need. Therapies of Postmodern and Family Systems Narrative Therapy Narrative Therapy is a process of storytelling. The therapist and the client work together to bring out the dominant or problem laden and sometimes invisible stories of their experiences. The therapist adopts a non-expert role in this process. He/she is not there to solve problems for the survivor, he is simply a guidance counselor thus communicating that the client is the expert in her own life and the expert in her sexual assault (Harford, P.M., 2010).
Great strides were made in the effective treatment of mental disorders. Are we going to be able to do without all psychiatric institutions, probably not, but we have learned that we need to educate the professionals who are dedicated to the treatment of these individuals. We need to continue to effectively study the environment and what effect it has on why people act and react in the ways they do. This article has opened my eyes as to how the study of psychology has changed over the years and will continue to grow to meet the needs of an ever changing
For the first time, I could actually see myself making a career out of alcoholism and addiction counselling and this has been an encouraging experience. This presentation taught me that the therapist must have ample self-awareness regarding their own opinions about AA and their personal views on addiction and losing control. As a therapist, my personal views should not dictate my treatment approach. I also recognised several techniques used by Dr. Brown. She practices reflection of feeling without criticism and translates the patient’s words to present them with a clearer picture of what they are feeling.
This perspective plays a thought-provoking and eye-opening role to overcome the misconceptions about her but also empowering for female patients who suffer from mental illness. This is partly because her approach does not overly depend on the dichotomous understanding of mental illness which has been prevalent in researchers and clinicians in the psychiatric field but instead, she explores Camille’s nuanced and situated identity contextualized back in her time and space. In this paper, I am going to present three distinctive aspects of her being and examine each of them to see whether she was mentally ill or simply she was a deviant and independent woman, which was rare to see because of the social norms and expectations of the time. Then I would argue the ethicality of this question itself and expand it into more general term of mental illness and a sense of abnormality from ethical perspectives. [Her life-long decision making] When Camille grew up, it is safe to say that she was surrounded by relatively fortunate circumstances compared to other females in terms of receiving parental support and artistic education.
That’s the person I want to become, giving me the opportunity to care for others and be a source of information and education for people who desperately need to make a life style change. I pray once I become a nurse I can successfully turn my character weaknesses into strengths. Since I can remember I have always listened out for the opportunity to be “that guy” jumping into group discussions to teach and clarify an unknown topic in a group discussion, to others I’m sure it’s just an annoying personality trait but to me it’s a chance to challenge my knowledge and research the topic until I am able to teach it fluently to others. Becoming a nurse gives me that same opportunity to teach people good health promotion strategies, rehabilitation exercises, and anything else to give the patient an opportunity to live a longer healthier life. It’s also frustrating to hit a ceiling in your career, not being able to advance any further in that profession without additional education.
As she said some students they have had in the past just hang around waiting to be told what to do whereas if I saw someone doing something I offered to help. There I quite a few things I need to be doing when I go back on placement like being more confident around the patients/service users as I think that any signs of nerves they will pick up on this and take advantage. My mentor also advised that it would be a good idea if I became familiar with some of the drugs that they use on a regular basis and gave me a sheet outlining the common drugs used in mental health nursing and she also gave me a copy of the British National Formulary (BNF) and said that if I was ever unsure about a drug I was administering I should always look in the BNF. I also need to remember to always minimize personal risk by always staying at least an arms length away from a patient and to give them lots of space and never to get stuck in a corner and if anyone does start to show any form of aggression I need to be firmer and explain that that behaviour whether verbal or otherwise is totally
Kayla McKenzie College Prep English December 15, 2011 Mrs. Layne Wilson Dear Ms. Alice Walker, Your book, “The Color Purple,” is a really good book that I enjoyed reading. I like how you told a story of events that happened to a lot of black women in this era. People need to know the history of how they were treated and what people did to stop it. I like the way you made the theme of the book be a motivation to others that may be going through exactly what Celie and other women who were abused by evil men. This story is very liberating to young woman to have the courage to stand up for their selves.
Burnout, Social Support, and Job Satisfaction Among Jordanian Mental Health Nurses Article Review # 2 Burnout, Social Support, and Job Satisfaction Among Jordanian Mental Health Nurses I reviewed an article about burnout in mental heath nurses. This article reviews a sample of 181 nurses from Jordan about their job satisfaction and how they deal with the stress of their jobs. I choose this article because on of the areas I was looking in to going into is mental heath. I think I could be very beneficial in this area because I have a background in psychology and sociology and debated getting a degree in that area. I wanted to see how other nurses dealt with the stresses of this field and the burnout rate.
She was adjusting it to the wrong patient. My communication and collaboration as well as care coordination, were complemented multiple times during my clinical experience. One of the things I put as a top priority was to fully understand what the patient needed and ensuring they got it (RECEIVED IT?). This ranged from smaller things I could do myself, to getting pushing (PUSHED BY) my nurse to the provider to the patient’s room. I always knew what my patient needed and was not afraid to advocate for
Freud Comparison Paper Sarah Lopez PSY 405 May 28, 2012 Karen Lundstrom Freud Comparison Paper Freud’s influence Karen Horney was driven and desired to pursue higher education most of her life. She started out in medical school but quickly became fascinated with mental diseases, the human mind and psychoanalysis. She continued to study and delve deeper into the theories of Freud and psychoanalysis, being completely fascinated and in awe of Freud’s theory. She was even able to find similarities between his theories and her own personal struggles which deepened the interest she had with Freud’s theories. As Horney continued studying Freud’s various theories she came across his theories such as penis envy and Oedipus complex.
