Some of these theorists are more well-known and should have been introduced to you in your undergraduate degree programs through general psychology and nursing courses, especially pediatrics. Lev VygotsSome of these theorists are more well-known and should have been introduced to you in your undergraduate degree programs through general psychology and nursing courses, especially pediatrics. Lev Vygotsky, Sara Smilansky, Albert Bandura, and John Bowlby will also be looked at in the PNP and possibly FNP future course work; please familiarize yourself with their theories during your search.
Declare your current specialty NP track. Based on your specialty interest, create a fictional patient with a health issue and family involvement, and situate this character. Discuss the developmental stage they are in based on Freud, Erikson, and Piaget, Vygotsky, Smilansky, Bandura, and Bowlby . Within each paragraph for each of the above theorists describe how you would integrate developmental theory and how you would assist with meeting developmental and psychosocial needs. If your client is an adult, it can be assumed they have progressed passed those theories and can be stated as such. End with a brief anticipated treatment or care plan based on your client’s needs. Provide a reference list for those websites or sources you used to complete this paper. Below is an example of what someone in a PMHNP track might come up with. This example and these ideas are taken from the 2010 film It’s Kinda a Funny Story.
JR, who is 17 years old, is physically fit, a straight-A student, and an athlete who is the starting pitcher on the varsity baseball team at his high school. He also plays the piano. He has no siblings. His only physical conditions are seasonal allergies, but he has presented to the inpatient unit for a major depressive episode and suicidal ideation. His parents are highly devoted. Dad is a successful engineer and Mom is a music teacher. They both are type A personalities who push their son toward excellence and have selected an engineering school for him to attend upon his high school graduation.His pet dog, a 12-year-old Labrador, recently passed away. He is also homeschooling during a COVID pandemic, and the baseball season was canceled. He does not have a girlfriend. He is shy and afraid to share company with females. He tells you he thinks about dying and is very frightened about the future, but does not want to hurt his parents.
Developmental Theory Application
See instructions for how to complete this part of the paper for the seven theorists to review.
Anticipated Treatment and Care Summary
In practice, I would expect the boy will be admitted to a care setting and started on an antidepressant and drug screened (high-stress environments also may make one more prone to substance abuse). Involving him in a group and meeting other people and possibly cognitive behavioral therapy may be helpful. Grief counseling may also assist with working through his losses. Alternative social and physical outlets for him need to be planned. Getting parents involved in understanding stress-related illness and how they might be helpful to reduce stress and assist with recovery is needed.
The submitted assignment should contain:
A fictional patient with a case, history, problem identified
Do not use the same type of situation, diagnosis, or age range of the patient provided in the example for your case construction.
Create paragraphs based on Freud, Erikson, Piaget, Vygotsky, Similansky, Bandura, and Bowlby’s theories that cover what stage the client is in. Describe how the care you plan has relevance for each of these developmental stages and how the developmental needs would be met. End with a paragraph on anticipated care and treatment summary. Submit this in a written assignment format with three text pages, and a title and reference page.
