The death of a loved one is a significant event that everyone experiences. An individual’s social environment, including societal and familial cultural factors, may influence how an individual approaches death or grieves the loss of someone else who dies. You can anticipate addressing grief in your social work practice and, therefore, should develop an understanding of the grieving process. Two models of grieving—the Kubler-Ross and Westburg models—identify stages through which an individual progresses in response to the death of a loved one. Understanding the various ways individuals cope with grief s you to anticipate their responses and to assist them in managing their grief. Select one model of grieving—the Kubler-Ross or Westburg model—to address in this assignment. Addressing the needs of grieving family members can diminish your personal emotional, mental, and physical resources. In addition to developing strategies to assist grieving individuals in crisis, you must develop strategies that support self-care. In this Assignment, you apply a grieving model to work with families in a hospice environment and suggest strategies for self-care. a 2- to 4-page paper in which you: Purchase the answer to view it
As the evidence in the case study implies, the murder of Scowen by Mayo cannot be deemed a planned one. The rationale behind such a stance is that Mayo claims that he acted in self-defense, meaning that he did not intend to kill Scowen. Yet, this situation raises major doubts regarding the rightfulness of Mayo’s course of action. From the case study, it is clear that Mayo demonstrated disregard of human life when he used a firearm. In the first place, he killed a human being who did not pose a major threat to him because verbally threatening someone and taking the actions to carry out those threats are not the same thing. Apart from that, the use of firearms is associated with a major risk to the lives of people around the area. That is to say that Mayo could have wounded or even killed others who were at the bar at that time. According to Mayo, the killing was premised on Scowen’s taking the beer bottle accompanied by the threat to kill him. That is not a sufficient ground to kill a person. The fact that Scowen did not break the bottle also indicates that he might have not implied any malice action toward Mayo, while verbal threats, as heard by Mayo, do not justify his actions either. If I were a prosecutor, I would primarily present manslaughter charges against Mayo. That is justified by the Colorado Criminal Laws. Specifically, a person commits manslaughter if they take reckless actions that lead to a person’s death and if their intentional actions lead to another person’s suicide (Hemenway, 2016). Manslaughter is qualified as a Class 4 felony, meaning that an offender has caused major harm to society. Meanwhile, possible penalties range from 2-6 years in prison to a fine of up to $500,000. respond to this discussion question in 100 words
While on routine patrol for the Any Town Police Department you notice a group of what appears be three underage male teenage kids and one female teen standing alongside the outside wall of a local convenience store in a poorly lit area. Since it is 1 AM in the morning on a Thursday night, which is in violation of your city ordinance regarding curfew, you decide to investigate. When you turn into the driveway of the convenience store your patrol car headlights illuminate the group of three teens and you notice a cigarette in the hand of the lone female of the group and it appears to you that two of the males are holding beer cans. After asking for identification, you began your investigation and realize that several decisions will have to be made regarding the underage youth: Purchase the answer to view it Purchase the answer to view it

For this Discussion, review the case Learning Resources and the case study excerpt presented. Reflect on the case study excerpt and consider the therapy approaches you might take to assess, diagnose, and treat the patient’s health needs. • • • • • a response to each of the following: • List three questions you might ask the patient if she were in your office. Provide a rationale for why you might ask these questions. • Identify people in the patient’s life you would need to speak to or get feedback from to further assess the patient’s situation. Include specific questions you might ask these people and why. • Explain what, if any, physical exams, and diagnostic tests would be appropriate for the patient and how the results would be used. • List a differential diagnosis for the patient. Identify the one that you think is most likely and explain why. • List two pharmacologic agents and their dosing that would be appropriate for the patient’s antidepressant therapy based on pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics. From a mechanism of action perspective, provide a rationale for why you might choose one agent over the other. • For the drug therapy you select, identify any contraindications to use or alterations in dosing that may need to be considered based on the client’s ethnicity. Discuss why the contraindication/alteration you identify exists. That is, what would be problematic with the use of this drug in individuals of other ethnicities? • Include any “check points” (i.e., follow-up data at Week 4, 8, 12, etc.), and indicate any therapeutic changes that you might make based on possible outcomes that may happen given your treatment options chosen. Discussion 2 Me The case presented this week, is that of a 75-year-old widow who just lost her spouse 10-months ago. Th patient presents with chief complaints of insomnia. Past medical history of DM, HTN, and MDD is reported. Since the passing of her husband, she states her depression has gotten worse as well as her sleep habits. The patient has no previous history of depression prior to her husband’s death. She is awake, alert, and oriented x3. Patient normally sees PCP once or twice a year. Patient denies any suicidal ideations. Patient arrived at the office today by private vehicle. Patient currently takes the following medications: Metformin 500mg BID, Januvia 100mg daily, Losartan 100mg daily, HCTZ 25mg daily, and Sertraline 100mg daily. Current weight: 88 kg. Current height: 64 inches. Temp: 98.6 degrees F. BP: 132/86 (Walden University). Question number one, what brings you in today? By asking an open-ended question, the patient is more willing to share information with the provider (Stern, 2016). Another question that would be of beneficial knowledge during the interview is, do you consume caffeine? If so, how much caffeine do you consume in a day? Caffeine consumption close to bedtime contributes greatly to insomnia (Farazdaq et al., 2018). Lastly, the third question that should be asked is, do you suffer from Gastro Esophageal Reflux Disease (GERD). According to Farazdaq, Andrades, and Nanji, (2018) GERD is a contributing factor to insomnia in elderly patients. By asking the above questions, the provider can rule out environmental factors while assessing the patients concerns with open-ended questions. People in the patient’s life that could provide further information is children or caretakers. Questions that would be appropriate to ask the patient’s children or caretaker would be if there is a recent decrease in her appetite, energy, mood, or interests. By asking about these areas of the patient’s life will provide external information that the patient might be withholding or may be unaware of. Insomnia relies heavily on self-report for a diagnosis (Levenson et al., 2015). Also, a physical exam could be performed with the order of blood testing to rule out thyroid problems. According to Dr. Abhinav Singh (2021), hyperthyroidism results in nervousness from overactivity of this hormone, and insomnia is often a symptom. Administering the Hamilton Anxiety Rating Scale (HAM-A) would assess the severity of the patient’s anxiety. The HAM-A results would aid with further treatment of the patient’s insomnia, if related to anxiety (Psychiatry & Behavioral Health Learning Network, 2021). Another appropriate scale to administer to this patient is the Hamilton Depression Rating Scale (HDRS). HDRS is an assessment that focuses on feelings of guilt, mood, suicidal ideation, activities, weight, various stages of insomnia, and many more important areas (Hamilton, 1960). The patient presents with a previous diagnosis of depression. The differential diagnosis for this patient is Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD), secondary to husband’s death. There are many possible changes within the living dynamics, such as financial burdens, fear of her own death, and suddenly sleeping alone. Changes within this patient’s routine may be a cause of reported insomnia. Temazepam is FDA approved for insomnia, and used off-label for anxiety disorders, acute mania, psychosis, and catatonia (Puzantian & Carlat, 2020). Temazepam is generally effective in the treatment of insomnia, by enhancing widespread inhibitory activity of GABA (Levenson et al., 2015). Temazepam is metabolized through the liver without CYP450 (Puzantian & Carlat, 2020). Another good sleep aid choice is Trazodone. Trazodone is widely used for insomnia (Levenson et al., 2015). Trazodone is FDA approved for the treatment of major depression and used off-label for insomnia and anxiety (Puzantian & Carlat, 2020). Trazodone inhibits serotonin reuptake, alpha-1 adrenergic receptor antagonist, and serotonin 5-HT2A and 5-HT2C receptor antagonist (Puzantian & Carlat, 2020). And Trazodone is metabolized primarily through CYP3A4 to active metabolite mCPP, that is metabolized by 2D6, inducing P-glycoprotein (Puzantian & Carlat, 2020). Trazodone, however, carries the side effect of daytime somnolence and dizziness (Puzantian & Carlat, 2020). The favorable medication for this patient, is Temazepam. Temazepam is a safer medication to use in elderly patients because of the lack of active metabolites, its short half-life and absence of drug interactions (Puzantian & Carlat, 2020). The patient is currently taking Metformin, Januvia, Losartan, HCTZ, and Sertraline. Based on the current medications, the patient is being treated for diabetes mellitus, hypertension, and depression. Adding Temazepam to the patient’s medication regimen would not result in toxicity of other medications. Sleep is heritable and regulated by numerous genes. A genome wide association study found numerous single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) significantly associated with insomnia symptoms. The most significant SNPs occurred within genes involved in neuroplasticity, stress reactivity neuronal excitability, and mental health (Rajib, 2020). The starting dose of Temazepam is lower in the elderly population (Puzantian & Carlat, 2020). The proper dose to begin with this patient, is Temazepam 7.5mg tab PO QHS. At the 4-week checkup, the expected outcome would be an increased ability to sleep, and reduced anxiety. If these results have not been achieved, Temazepam 15mg tab PO Q HS would be ordered. Temazepam does have the risk of weakness and dizziness, so great care and caution would need to be taken when increasing the dose. There needs to be an evaluation of the effects at week 8, or sooner if needed. The maximum dose of Temazepam is 30mg PO Q HS, and even lower in the elderly (Puzantian & Carlat, 2020).
