The role of the psychiatric nurse practitioner is founded on psychotherapy. Because using a holistic paradigm is becoming more popular and cost-effective, it is important to know how you can use psychotherapy skills to include caring, connection, narrative, and anxiety management for your patients.
Using APA format and including three scholarly references, write a two- to three-page paper (not including the reference page) addressing the following:
- Discuss the elements of psychotherapy and give a clinical example of each from your past nursing experience.
- Explain the biological basis of anxiety and discuss in general the priorities for treatment using the practice treatment hierarchy.
