In any human enterprise. in medical specialty as a central illustration. when of all time facts are thin. strongly held theories proliferate. Because the pros and cons for the usage of medical specialty in psychopathology are non perfectly clear or agreed upon. strong statements have risen on all sides. Extremist life scientists insist that all psychiatric unwellness consequence from abnormalcies in the encephalon. Drugs are about seen as the reply and the inauspicious effects as merely inconvenient. To these practicians “talking” therapies of whatever assortment are merely a waste of clip.
Diametrically opposed to the extremist life scientists are the dogmatic psychologists who insist that psychiatric jobs are non medical jobs but instead the merchandises of unconscious struggle. bad life experiences. wrong thought. or inauspicious societal fortunes. These theoreticians are fond of claiming that medical interventions “cover up” psychiatric symptoms. whereas psychological treatments-be they psychoanalysis. behavioural alteration. cognitive restructuring. and so on-get the true “root” of the job ( Gorman. 1990 ) .
My aims nevertheless as a practising mental wellness nurse and as a guidance psychologist is non to make a division in the clinical pattern. Rather. to make an apprehension and a better image if both pattern is utilized in the public assistance of our clients in the mental wellness profession. In this respect I opted to use and use the Biopsychosocial Model ( BPM ) of psychopathology in the presentation of my instance analysis. BPM was popularized by head-shrinker George L. Engelis. This is a general theoretical account or attack that posits that biological. psychological ( which entails ideas. emotions. and behaviours ) . and societal factors. all play a important function in human operation in the context of disease or unwellness. Indeed. wellness is best understood in footings of a combination of biological. psychological. and societal factors instead than strictly in biological footings ( Santock. 2007 ) .
The biological constituent of the biopsychosocial theoretical account seeks to understand how the cause of the unwellness stems from the operation of the individual’s organic structure. The psychological constituent of the theoretical account looks for possible psychological causes for a wellness job such as deficiency of self-denial. emotional convulsion. and negative thought. The societal portion of the theoretical account investigates how different societal factors such as socioeconomic position. civilization. poorness. engineering. and faith can act upon wellness. The biopsychosocial theoretical account implies that intervention of disease processes requires that the wellness attention squad address biological. psychological and societal influences upon a patient’s operation. In a philosophical sense. the biopsychosocial theoretical account provinces that the workings of the organic structure can impact the head. and the workings of the head can impact the organic structure. This means both a direct interaction between head and organic structure every bit good as indirect effects through intermediate factors ( Halligan. P. and Alyward M. 2006 ) .
This is the instance of Remi P. Gandanghari ( non existent name ) ; other informations are presented in chapter II. I choose her as my client for procedure recording and instance study because I was the nurse on responsibility when she was admitted. From at that place on she sought for voluntary guidance after her status was stable. She was controlled by her medicine and she is presently in remittal from her unwellness. She is now an outpatient client. who sacredly comes for follow-up medical examinations in our establishment. The undermentioned methods of information assemblage techniques were utilised to obtain information sing my client: 1. Patient’s Chart The information contained in the medical record allows wellness attention suppliers to find the patient’s medical history and supply informed attention. The medical record serves as the cardinal depository for be aftering patient attention and documenting communicating among patient and wellness attention supplier and professionals lending to the patient’s attention ( Udan. 2004 ) .
2. Behavioral observations are descriptions of the patients get bying. accommodations. ideas and actions. feelings and perceptual experiences straight observed by the staff. The non-verbal manner the patient is pass oning ( Udan. 2004 ) . 3. Nurse-Patient Interaction is a professional relationship in which trust is the basic component ( Udan. 2004 ) . If trust is developed the client can easy open information sing her status. ideas. and feelings. 4. Anecdotal studies are descriptions of a client’s unusual or unexpected behaviour in a given state of affairs or event. Such studies are subjective and descriptive in nature and recorded in narrative signifier. ( Villar. 2009 ) .
5. Interview of important others with parents. siblings. and other important others provide utile information which when put together. can organize a well rounded image of the client particularly if collected over clip and examined side by side ( Villar. 2009 ) .
6. Intake interviews are initial interviews where the counsellor collects information on the client’s concerns. current position. and certain personal traits ( Villar. 2009 ) .
7. Summary of reding Sessionss These informations can besides assist wining counsellors and other mental wellness workers over clip. Session summaries give the effect of each session with the client ( Villar. 2009 ) .
Under the patients’ measure of rights and Mental Health Systems Act the patient has the right to confidentiality of records. Information sing the clients profile and primary wellness attention suppliers are substituted under their pen name to continue Anonymity ( Keltner. 1999 ) . Some information’s are omitted and merely relevant information for the survey was used. Client’s consent for instance study was obtained verbally after all ethical considerations were explained. Significant others and primary health professional were besides informed of the research workers purposes for instance survey. verbal consent was besides obtained. II. GENERAL DATA

1. Clinical Chemistry: FBS–Fasting blood sugar is a everyday process for most patients in drug therapy for antidepressants to obtain a baseline ( Evan and Reiss. 2007 ) . Since antidepressants such as SSRI increases the blood sugar. therefore Mrs. Gandanghari is utilizing Sertraline. The baseline blood sugar could besides be utile in finding abnormalities in the metabolic procedure. Example major displacements from antidepressants types such as SSRI to MAOI’s. In contrast to SSRI MAOI’s decreases the blood sugar degree. hence anterior to any usage of antidepressant FBS must be obtained foremost.
2. Urinalysis: most of the clip prior to psychopharmacotherapy U/A is ordered non as a diagnostic tool instead. same through with FBS. it serves as a baseline information for appraisal. When in Drug therapy. U/A should be done monthly to find the kidney map trial since some temper stabilizers are nephrotoxics.

III. PSYCHOSOCIAL PROBLEM LIST:
Problem designation was done in a tabular mode to ease easier apprehension of the job and to easy shoot the intercessions suited for the patient. Maslow’s hierarchy of demand was utilized in job designation since ; in the instance of the patient a batch of these demands were neglected. deferred and altered. Legend of the tonss given:
0 – non verbalise
1 – Verbalized when asked merely
2 – Verbalized even when non asked
3 – Verbalized legion times
ABC’s of Psychiatry:
1 – ( A ) – Affectional

2 – Actual
1 – Potential
Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs:

5 – Physiological
The lists of biological jobs of Remi Gandanghari were identified. Some nursing intercessions are dependent to the medical intercessions ordered by the head-shrinker. In the class of her psychopharmacologic therapy criterion nursing intercessions must be done with rigorous safeguards. In the class of this therapy nurses must be able to place inauspicious effects and side effects of the medicines and study to the primary health professional if these effects are present ( Evans. 1990 ) . A patient on temper stabilizers such as Valproic Acid ( Valpross ) may exhibit somatizations. the nurse must be able to place if symptoms are existent in such instances it is still a demand to mention complains to the primary attention giver. Time of disposal. dose and blood trials to look into serum degree or toxicity must good be done with cautiousness and rigorous conformity.
The independent nursing attention should besides be performed as the demand arises. In the instance of Remi when she is in her depressive stage. disregard for hygiene and appetency are the common jobs encountered. If this occurs the biologic demand must be filled by the nurse. Hygiene and self-care activities are encouraged and every bit much as possible “independently” . Staying with the patient is besides a must. One clip when her repasts was served she remained motionless ; switching to a catatonic province. as the nurse on responsibility I took the enterprise to feed her by helping her custodies with the spoon and fork. this persisted for about two yearss during meal clip nevertheless important alterations were seen when she took the enterprise to feed herself. Damage in the function public presentation is common among depressive patients. The loss of inaugural and motive are merely a few to this factor.
When I interviewed her for non fall ining occupational therapy and grounds for parturiency to her room. she stated that she is experiencing cranky. restlessness and shudders are seen and she keeps pacing along the hallway of her room. It was subsequently discovered when referred that she is holding Extrapyramidal Side Effects ( EPS ) peculiarly Akathisia from Risperidone ; Biperidin was prescribed to antagonize this effects. When the EPS was controlled she was able to fall in the occupational therapy and activities in the ward. Motivation and initiatives’ to execute certain undertakings were observed. She was able to hold surpassed her depressive province. she was able to verbalise her concerns and she was able to observe symptoms of EPS and describe it to the staff as it occurs. Psychological Problems:
A batch of her jobs identified to be profoundly rooted in her psychological concepts. A individual weak psychological concept normally are easy predisposed to mental unwellness. Remi has undergone a batch of stressors which has inhibited her psychological growing and well-being. Self-harm is merely one of the ways she sees as the path to get away these jobs. In one of the Remotivational activities conducted by consorting pupil nurses she verbally declared her wish to decease. when I processed this incident she began shouting and told me that she has no usage in this universe. She states that “A individual is useless if she has no appreciation of reality” . As nurses the primary intercession is to establish S. H. E ( Suicide. Homicide. and Escape ) safeguards. Suicide actions may hold changing grounds from each person: an flight. a signifier of solution to the bing job. but for Remi she internalized her hatred to the events that have happened in her life. she viewed herself as the root cause of all this events – from their matrimonial break-up to jobs with her household. and her lower statuss among her siblings.
Homicidal safeguards were instituted since self-destructive patients may potentially deviate their suicide thrusts to others. Escape safeguards are necessary in the instance of Remi because most self-destructive patients may get worse into this action until it becomes successful. she may look at the possibility of get awaying and executing the self-destruction act with no 1 to forestall her. Religious hurt. perturbation of the thought procedure. and damage of her personal individuality may be correlated with situational crises. The best intercession is to measure her religious beliefs her religion and her religious patterns.
In one of the Nurse-Patient Interaction Mrs. Remi confessed her loss of religion to a supreme being. she one time shared that no affair how much she prayed God isn’t replying her supplications. God has forgotten me as she stated with compunction. Appraisal of the idea content. manifestation and cognitive deformations was done and re-orient patient back to patient as necessary. Loss of Personal individuality is a procedure that happens non merely to a individual person. instead a cosmopolitan construct that an single journey to finish. Therefore this must be carefully explained. world therapy or experiential doctrine was implemented in our guidance Sessionss. Social Problems:
Social interaction perturbation was noted in Remi’s instance when she refuses to actively take part in the activities in the ward. A hebdomad after admittance she isolated herself and frequently remained confined in her bed. Stable patients were nevertheless friendly to her. In one of our exercisings plan we encourage her to take the forenoon exercising. she hesitated at first but when we reinforced a behaviour that she would acquire land privileges and Television privilege. she took the challenge provided that she will be accompanied by another patient. Remi and this patient became friends and they lead the forenoon exercises together every twenty-four hours as spouses. This illustration is merely one of the intercessions a nurse must develop. this accomplishment is every bit of import as the endurance for most of the patients. I have seen a batch of alterations so thenceforth she met XXXXXXXX.
Mental unwellness does non merely impact the individual enduring from it ; it is besides a job among the household members. Perturbation in the household procedure was identified as a job. non merely in the fiscal agencies but besides the header and accommodations of the household members in the instance of Remi. During one of the visits of her sister the interaction between the sister and the nurse was initiated it was subsequently found out that the household members are running out of fiscal resources for her medical measures and institutionalization. It was besides noted that the instance they are prosecuting against the direction of SM for her instance larceny. takes a large emphasis among the household members.
The intercession that was conducted was the behavioural observations of her advancement was shared. when I shared to the sister who is a medical pupil. the advancement of Ms. Remi on her conformity to the intervention regimens and her enterprise and motive to be treated the sister explosion into cryings of joy and was elated to portion the intelligence to the other members of their household particularly to Remi’s girl. The sister thanked us and from here on the continuance of her trial was done by the household members twice a hebdomad. V. SUMMARY. CONCLUSIONS AND INSIGHTS
Bi-polar and Mood upsets are merely one of the kingdom of psychopathology. Peoples with this unwellness are frequently misunderstood and frequently times being criticized for their inappropriate behaviour. Sadly. some even blame this upset to themselves. Worst others are frequently labeled with this stigma throughout their lives perverting their maps. relationships and their egos. Peoples with this disablement and all types of mental unwellness wake up for an ageless conflict – the conflict against ego! Ms. Remi is merely one among this people pitching up for her conflict. She was institutionalized because of brief psychotic dislocation and aggravation of her unwellness. She was discharged after 2 months in our establishment. after which she was summoned in tribunal for her instance of larceny. harmonizing to her in one of her out-patient check-up the instance was dismissed after the court’s determination of mental incompetency.
She has to the full accepted her unwellness. she redirected her ends and she focused on these ends. She maintained her take place medicines. sacredly comes for followup. Today she is confronting another conflict. to go on populating! The Biopsychosocial theoretical account of psychopathology was utilized in the instance conceptualisation of Ms. Remi. The jobs were identified. intercessions were explained and the nursing diagnosings were presented. Throughout our pattern as nurses encounter patients that would model us. animate us and specify what truly our profession is. Sometimes the wages itself in nursing is to see the betterments of our patients. by the smallest inside informations of our intercessions we bring back the lives of the patients that were stolen by their disease. This is my experience in the instance of Ms. Remi and I hope that in my pattern as a psychiatric and mental wellness nurse. as a reding psychologist this experience would be applicable to all my patients. In the terminal. the philosophical underpinnings of Carl Rogers’s humanistic psychological science “never give up on the patient” is best applicable in our pattern as nurses.
