A nurse is counseling the spouse of a client who has a history of alcohol abuse. What does the nurse

explain is the main reason for drinking alcohol in people with a long history of alcohol abuse?

1. They are dependent on it.

2. They lack the motivation to stop.

3. They use it for coping.

4. They enjoy the associated socialization. - Ans-1

Alcohol causes both physical and psychological dependence; the individual needs the alcohol to

function. Alcoholism is a disorder that entails physical and psychological dependence. Because alcohol is

so physiologically addictive, the client's body craves the alcohol, so most clients lack the motivation to

stop because they will go into withdrawal. Clients who abuse alcohol have numbed their ability to utilize

other coping mechanisms, so alcohol is used as an excuse for coping. People with alcoholism usually

drink alone or feel alone in a crowd; socialization is not the prime reason for their drinking.

How do adolescents establish family identity during psychosocial development? Select all that apply.

1

By acting independently to make his or her own decisions

2

By evaluating his or her own health with a feeling of well-being

3

By fostering his or her own development within a balanced family structure

4

By building close peer relationships to achieve acceptance in the society

5

By achieving marked physical changes - Ans-13

An adolescent establishes family identity by acting independently for taking important decisions about

self. They also need to foster their development along with maintaining a balanced family structure.

Health identity is associated with the evaluation of one's own health with a feeling of well-being. By

building close peer relationships, an adolescent develops a sense of belonging, approval, and the

opportunity to learn acceptable behavior. These actions establish an adolescent's group identity. The

sound and healthy growth of the adolescent, with marked physical changes, helps to build an

adolescent's sexual identity.

A clinic nurse observes a 2-year-old client sitting alone, rocking and staring at a small, shiny top that she

is spinning. Later the father relates his concerns, stating, "She pushes me away. She doesn't speak, and

she only shows feelings when I take her top away. Is it something I've done?" What is the most

therapeutic initial response by the nurse?

1

Asking the father about his relationship with his wife

2

Asking the father how he held the child when she was an infant

3

Telling the father that it is nothing he has done and sharing the nurse's observations of the child

4

Telling the father not to be concerned and stressing that the child will outgrow this developmental

phase - Ans-3

The nurse provides support in a nonjudgmental way by sharing information and observations about the

child. This child exhibits symptoms of autism, which is not attributable to the actions of the parents.

Asking the father about his relationship with his wife or how he held the child when she was an infant

indirectly indicates that the parent may be at fault; it negates the father's need for support and

increases his sense of guilt. Telling the father not to be concerned and stressing that the child will

outgrow this developmental phase is false reassurance that does not provide support; the father

recognizes that something is wrong.

What is most appropriate for a nurse to say when interviewing a newly admitted depressed client whose

thoughts are focused on feelings of worthlessness and failure?

1

"Tell me how you feel about yourself."

2

"Tell me what has been bothering you."

3

"Why do you feel so bad about yourself?"

4

"What can we do to help you while you're here?" - Ans-1

Because major depression is a result of the client's feelings of self-rejection, it is important for the nurse

to have the client initially identify these feelings before developing a plan of care. Later discussion

should be focused on other topics to prevent reinforcement of negative thoughts and feelings. "Tell me

what has been bothering you" is asking the client to draw a conclusion; the client may be unable to do

so at this time. Also, depression may be related not to external events but instead to a client's

psychobiology. Asking why does not let a client explore feelings; it usually elicits an "I don't know"

response. "What can we do to help you while you're here?" is beyond the scope of the client's abilities

at this time.
