|HCS||NURCNS||2350||2||Advanced Psychiatric Mental Health Nursing: Group Theory and Research|
This course examines models of group interventions in psychiatric mental health nursing from a holistic perspective and incorporates theory and research from nursing and related sciences to develop a framework for guiding advanced nursing practice. Clinical therapeutics focus on the use of group interventions across the life cycle with different populations in altering human responses associated with mental and emotional problems. Various classifications of systems of nursing phenomena are considered in relation to advances in psychobiology and in relation to use of group interventions with specific client populations. Group management skills are explored within the context of a selected clinically-related management role and case management.
