In many realms of medicine, objective diagnoses can be made: A clavicula is broken. An infection is present. TSH levels meet the diagnostic criteria for hypothyroidism. Psychiatry, on the other hand, deals with psychological phenomena and behaviors. Can these, too, be “defined objectively and by scientific criteria (Gergen, 1985), or are they social constructions?” (Sadock et al., 2015).

Thanks to myriad advances during recent decades, we know that psychopathology is caused by many interacting factors. Theoretical and clinical contributions to the field have come from the neural sciences, genetics, psychology, and social-cultural sciences. How do these factors impact the expression, classification, diagnosis, and prevalence of psychopathology, and why might it be important for a nurse practitioner to take a multidimensional, integrative approach?

To Prepare:

Review this week’s Learning Resources, considering the many interacting factors that contribute to the development of psychopathology.

Consider how theoretical perspective on psychopathology impacts the work of the PMHNP.

By Day 3 of Week 1

Explain the biological (genetic and neuroscientific); psychological (behavioral and cognitive processes, emotional, developmental); and social, cultural, and interpersonal factors that influence the development of psychopathology.

Part I discussion this week focused on the DNP practice scholar.  The practice scholar is immersed in lifelong learning and knowledge sharing.  Please answer the following questions:

1.      How have you demonstrated your role as a clinical scholar in your current position?

2.      How do you anticipate integrating this role into your current or future career?

Part II: For Case Study Students

Please include citations and matching references to support your discussion. How will you address issues that could have potentially occurred, such as:

o   Not all participants (staff and/or patients) attended as planned and some staff were out sick.  How will you follow up with them? (EMAIL, CALL, or whatever you find pertinent)

o   There are float nurses and traveler nurses on the unit. How will this impact your project plan? If this does not apply to your project please discuss another impact that has affected your implementation plan? ** it doesn’t apply to my project so you can use: Potential barriers include participants forgetting to input their data to the tracking app and lack of reliable mobile access. These can be mitigated with training and support and weekly reminders to participants. access to healthy food or any other barrier that a patient will have to lose weight)
