REFLECTION For the purpose of this assignment I will provide a brief definition of what reflection means according to Johns (2009). I will then demonstrate my understanding of two different models of reflection by describing, Gibbs (1988) reflective cycle and John’s (1994) model of structured refection. I will then offer a critical analysis of the processes of reflection and how they can contribute to personal and professional development. Finally I will apply Gibbs (1988) model of reflective practice when discussing a comment I made to a patient whom I shall refer to as David a seventy two year old gentleman during a multi-disciplinary team meeting known as ward round. The placement setting where David resides is a forensic low secure hospital houses men who are detained under the Mental Health Act (1983) http://www.dh.gov.uk/.

Applying Bloom's Taxonomy to Managing Patients with a Chronic Disease Benjamin Bloom was an educational psychologist who, in 1956, headed a committee to develop a hierarchal frame of education in which lower-level knowledge must be mastered prior to obtaining higher level knowledge. The committee “identified three domains of educational activities: cognitive – mental skills (knowledge), affective – growth in feelings or emotional areas (attitude), psychomotor – manual or physical skills (skills)” (Clark, 2010). In nursing this theory can be applied to managing patients with chronic diseases, those generally lasting throughout the lifespan of the patient, to strengthen the patient’s level of self-efficacy. In the cognitive domain primary teaching and learning is taking place. Because of increasingly shortened hospital stays the inpatient population may only be able to attain the basic knowledge level within this domain prior to discharge.
Psychotherapeutic Theories and Models (CPc1) Assignment 2 Paul Carey Student No: 1241-13 Abstract In this assignment I will explore the theories of Existentialism and Narrative therapy, giving an overview of the main elements, including examples of potential weaknesses or limitations that may occur in their clinical use. I will then discuss and explore the ways the theories links with the case study of John, using examples from Johns presenting story to explore a clinical application. Theoretical discussion Existentialism is a philosophical approach to therapy (Corey, 2009a), where the therapist practically applies this approach to a relevant discussion and thinking about a client’s life (Van Deurzen & Adams, 2011). It is not so much a therapy about individual problems, as it is a therapy on the problem of life, or living, as applied to the clients own sense of self in the world (Van Deurzen & Adams, 2011). Philosophers who laid the foundation for the approach gave focus to the existential or ontological dimension of our existence (Cohn, 1997).
Exercise Exercise as a Successful Treatment for Depression LIB100, Write Your Class Section Here Student’s Name Professor Kahn Summer 2011 Topic: Exercise as a Successful Treatment for Depression Thesis statement: Moderately strenuous exercise performed three times a week for forty-five minutes to an hour can relieve moderate depression. Similarly, moderately strenuous exercise performed for thirty minutes three to five times a week may help relieve severe depression. Search strategy and evaluation of resources: I began my research about treating depression through the use of exercise by performing a keyword search for the words depression exercise in the Gale Virtual Reference Library which I accessed through the ASA Library Dabases and eBooks. I chose an entry about how exercise can successfully treat depression from the Gale Encyclopedia of Medicine because this is a subject specific encyclopedia that provides background information about medical topics. The entry was written by L. Fleming Fallon, a Professor of Public Health at Bowling Green State University making him an authority on medical issues.
During the treatment of CT clients’ there is a collaborative effort between the client and therapist. CT clients learn to gather and weigh information to restructure their core schemata. (Lecture, Week 5) REBT is based on the “assumption that cognitions, emotions, and behaviors interacts significantly and
Biopsychosocial Impact In this reflective account I will demonstrate the knowledge and understanding I gained from working with a service user in the community mental health setting where I had been based. The service user in question had a diagnosed of depression which was due to a stressful period in his life which had resulted in changes he was experiencing difficulties For this purpose I have chosen Gibbs (1988) reflective cycle (www.ahot) In compliance with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (2008) ( www.NMC) and the General Social Care Council code of conduct relating to client confidentiality (www.GSCC) I have changed the service users name and for the purpose of this reflective account I will refer to him as Albert. I was allocated the case of a gentleman of 72 who had previously been diagnosed with depression by his GP who had prescribed him anti depressants. Depression can be described as a range of symptoms and behaviours (Freeman, Gilliam, Shearin, Plamping 1997 page 15) which can indicate a mild to severe form of the illness which is usually expressed as sadness or worry and can affect an individuals daily activities (Freeman, Gilliam, Shearin, Plamping 1997 page 14). The symptoms include low or depressed mood, for the same two week period (Freeman, Gilliam, Shearin, Plamping 1997 page 14) which is accompanied by at least five other symptoms ranging from loss of interest or pleasure in normal activities, inability to concentrate, disturbed sleep, poor appetite, self hate and suicidal tendencies (Freeman, Gilliam, Shearin, Plamping 1997 page 14).
“According to U.S. Department of Transportation statistics, 3,331 people were killed and 387,000 more injured in crashes involving a distracted driver in 2011” (Herzog, 2011). This tells us that driving and texting is clearly killing and injuring people. Car accidents can cause physical and emotional distress. In the film family members were showing signs of emotional and physical distress by hitting the arm rest on the chair and when talking repeatedly about how they can’t say things that they want their child to do. It was difficult for some to tell the story of the accident because they were in so much pain and frustration.
As a health care professional trained in different approach, I assessed my client based on the theory and learning experience that I have had. The client was been diagnosed with dementia, limited mobility, and inadequate verbal communication. I undertook a full assessment to a client with a sacral pressure sore. Assessment using observation was been completed to the sacral area, and graded the level of pressure ulcer using the Braden scale. The nurse mentor was been informed about the type of dressing and intervention that should be provided to the client, along with the explanation with the rationale to the procedure that I have decided to use.
EVALUATE THE CLAIM THAT PERSON-CENTRED THERAPY OFFERS THE THERAPIST ALL THAT HE/SHE WILL NEED TO TREAT CLIENTS INTRODUCTION In approaching this assignment, I researched the theory through various different sources behind Person-Centred Therapy and how the concept was developed. I have attempted to give a background of Carl Rogers theory of human psychology and how from this he formulated the six core conditions for Person-Centred Therapy before providing my own evaluation of whether Person-Centred Therapy provides all the tools required for a therapist to successfully treat their client. The concept of Person-Centred Therapy was developed by an American Psychologist called Carl Rogers during the 1940s and 1950s. The approach of Person-Centred Therapy was borne out of Carl Rogers theory of human personality – in that each person naturally strives from birth to achieve their full potential. Carl Rogers believed that every living thing - human beings included - had an inbuilt life force to self-actualise and to develop their own potential as fully as possible.
