NUR 283 - PMHNP III Care of the Adult Psychiatric Client: Group and Family Therapy and Care of the Older Adult


Semester Hours: 5
This is the third of four clinical courses and provides the theoretical content and clinical practice guidelines for intervening in psychiatric disorders of individuals across the lifespan with a special emphasis on group/family interventions and care of the older adult. The theoretical bases for a range of group and family psychotherapeutic interventions across the lifespan are examined; issues with care of older adults and their families receive particular emphasis.  Evidence based therapies are integrated with the clinical practice guidelines directing the management of psychiatric disorders, particularly with the older adult. The course innovatively implements intensive didactic content both “frontloaded” at the beginning of the semester as well as scheduled at intervals during the semester, using an interactive case based model. Learners will also have simulation and standardized learning experiences during the semester to better prepare learners for opportunities to perform and hone skills during their clinical practicum. Interprofessional experts in the field psychiatry will provide high level content for the NP student in the intensive learning sessions.  Students will participate in a precepted clinical rotation in a setting designed for mental health service delivery.  Clinical rotations will include opportunities for students to participate in emergency telehealth experiences for a diverse population of clients across the lifespan from the New York Metropolitan area. This will afford the student the opportunity to sophisticate their psychiatric diagnostic and assessment skills and integrate practice guidelines and evidence based approaches into their treatment planning and management with emphasis on psychopharmacology. Students will also have a clinical experience where they co-lead a therapeutic group. Learning in this course is a collaborative process and in a interprofessional learning environment providing quality, holistic, scientifically sound, and patient-centered care. Advanced practice role development is integrated throughout the course.
