The foundational theories of Psychiatric Mental Health Nursing are the foundation for the care of individuals suffering from a broad range of mental health challenges. Each theory is derived from a common premise that the human experience and behavior are comprised of three levels of self-awareness: perceiving, thinking, and acting. Each theory is developed and tested in the context of each other, which allows psychiatric mental health nurses to work with and understand the unique ways the human experience and behavior operate within the context of each other.
If you were to ask someone who describes themselves as being on the inside of a psychiatric ward to describe the concept of self-awareness, the answer would be a lot different.
Self-awareness, or the ability to view our inner-selves accurately, is a basic human need. This is why psychiatry itself has many branches, so that nurses can be well-trained in the ways that they can work with each other. A self-awareness nurse is someone who understands and can observe the way people who are being treated respond to treatment. She then works with these people in order to help them get better.
The problem is, most of us don’t think about our own internal reactions and internal thoughts very well. We usually only pay attention to what our mind is telling us about ourselves. This is because our minds are so connected to the rest of our bodies, that we don’t even notice the way our bodies are reacting to things, we just think we’re reacting the way we think we’re reacting.
Psychiatrists call it “somatic reactivity,” when the brain is reactive to certain stimuli. A person who has OCD will probably react to something touching his stomach in a particular way, even if they are not aware of it. The reason is that they are reacting to the same set of stimuli that the rest of the world is reacting to. Our internal thoughts and reactions are very important when it comes to treating mental disorders, as they are the result of our internal reactions.
The very reason we call a mental disorder a disorder at all is because it is an area of the brain that is affected by the stimulus of the disorder. It’s the area that is affected by the disorder. That’s why we refer to it as a disorder and not a mental illness. The internal reactions that are involved in the disorder are what causes the mental disorder in the first place. Our reaction to specific stimuli can be a very important factor in treatment.
These reactions are the brain’s own reaction, and they can, in fact, be a very important factor in treatment. The brain is often affected by the stress of life, and this is why it is one of the most important factors for the treatment of depression, bipolar, and schizophrenia. The stress of life does not simply be the stress of depression, but stress on the mind, and the stress of the mind is also very important for the treatment of schizophrenia.
Psychologists and psychiatrists spend a lot of time talking about the stress of life. Stress can cause depression, but also, and perhaps more importantly, stress can cause psychosis. Psychosis is simply a psychotic state of mind, and its cause often appears to be the stress of life. Psychosis is often treated by the psychiatric profession by using certain medications that reduce the stress produced by the illness and help the patient feel more normal in their daily activities.
As a psychiatrist, I’ve seen patients with psychotic symptoms treated with antipsychotic medications. Antipsychotic medication is a class of medications that was originally developed for schizophrenia and other psychotic conditions, but the antipsychotics have now been used for years to treat other neurological conditions, such as Parkinson’s disease and epilepsy. Although the antipsychotics work for some people with psychosis, many psychiatrists and psychologists recommend against their use because of a number of concerns.
The main concerns: Side effects, the risk of abuse, and the lack of evidence for effectiveness. There are many reasons why antipsychotics are not recommended for treating psychotic patients. In the first place, there is no clear scientific evidence to show that the medications actually work to treat psychosis. Secondly, there is no evidence that the individuals who are prescribed medications suffer more harm in the long term compared to those who are not prescribed medications. Also, the risks of abuse are very real.
