Adaptations for Mental Health

In this course the student begins to synthesize concepts from previous coursework with theories of adaptation. Gerontological nursing competencies, evidence-based practice and client safety are underscored. Situational and maturational crises, stress, ethical considerations, and coping in relation to mental health are integral concepts for dialogue. Discussion focuses on high-risk diverse populations of individuals, families, and communities and their adaptive responses to critical and long term complex problems. Assignments include a presentation, book/movie analysis, and case study. Students will explore group dynamics by attending various types of support groups and will reflect on their experiences with journal writing.
