Journaling is a continual reflection on clinical experiences and your related thoughts, feelings, and behaviors surrounding those experiences. You will not be graded on the experiences you have had, but instead on your commitment to reflecting on those experiences and utilizing those reflections to improve your professional identity and skillset. Your journal is a place where you can record thoughts regarding a specific client encounter. Think of the journal as a personal, one-to-one communication tool between you and your instructor. Journal entries are viewable only by you and your instructor. All clinical discussion or communication will protect the confidentiality of clients.

While being mindful of integrating critical thinking into the management of clients during the clinical experience, you will also be evaluating health promotion and maintenance for children, adolescents, adults and/or older adults, to include medically underserved groups. The PMHNP role also encompasses analyzing cultural proficiency and spirituality in the assessment, diagnosis, treatment, and management of clients with mental health conditions.

Your entry must be about a client encounter you had this week and should be no more than 500 words. Journal entries should also include an analysis of the nurse practitioner role or the potential role in the clinical setting. Select one of the following options to help guide you:

Option 1

Write about a situation that you felt you handled well. What did you do? Provide justification and reasoning for your actions. This commentary should include reference to relevant course content or research.

Week 5: Journal

Instructions

Given that people in close relationships have considerable information about their partners, it is not surprising that they can predict their relationship state and fate.  However, couples are prone to “develop various mental biases that serve to promote the continuation of the relationship and buffer the intimates from the more negative aspects of a relationship” (Agnew et al., 2001, p. 1042).  Although such distortions may be adaptive to relationship stability, the positively biased views may detract from the predictive value of couples’ own evaluation regarding relationship fate.  Thus, in order to obtain less biased views of a couple’s relationship (Agnew et al. (2001) investigated how well heterosexual couples’ social network can prognosticate the outcome of the couple’s relationship.  The researchers found considerable overlap between friends and the couple’s own perceptions of their romance; however, the friends’ perceptions tended to be more negative.  Because women tend to self-disclose relationship information more to their friends than do men, friends of the female couple member were more successful at predicting relationship dissolution.  In addition, the couples whose social networks overlap had more stable relationships.  An interesting implication of this research is that just as the self is socially constructed, social networks can have a profound influence on the fate of relationships.

Write a 250-300 word journal in APA format entry sharing your views on this matter.  Speculate how and/or why friends can impact romantic relationships.  Support your discussion integrating terms/concepts from both Chapters 8 and 9 (See attached pdf files).  Include at least one reference.
