(Miriam transcript (Links to an external site.)).
From your perspective as Miriamâ€™s psychiatric nurse practitioner, answer the following questions in a two- to three-page double-spaced paper (not including the reference page) in APA format. Include at least two peer-reviewed, evidence-based references (not including your textbooks).
- Identify what interview questions you would have used to determine the underlying eating disorder, self-mutilation, and rape.
- Using the interpersonal therapy model, identify three specific goals for Miriamâ€™s treatment, and in which phase each goal should be accomplished.
- Sarah, Miriamâ€™s mother, asks why you are choosing interpersonal therapy and how it will be beneficial for Miriam. How do you respond? Compare and contrast it with humanistic-existential or solution-focused psychotherapy.
- What are the legal and ethical implications for you relative to a patient reporting a sexual assault? What is the best way for you to proceed? Reference your state of practice’s laws.
