What an awful first post! Please don't let this stop you from asking for help.
I understand what your going through, IPR's are to understand
how you as the nurse perform therapeutic communication and how you can improve.
These are not suppose to be word for word, but as close as you can get.
My client was diagnoses with schizoaffective disorder)
Nurse: Did you want to tell me a little about yourself?
Client: Well, what do you want to know?
Client's non-verbal communication:
Giving eye contact at times, looking down at times. Hands to the side, sitting with left leg over the right leg.
Communication technique used by nurse:
Using open-ended questions
Asking broad questions that led to invite the client to explore thoughts or feelings.
People with schizoaffective disorder can have a wide variety of different symtoms, including problems with their contact with reality (hallucinations, delusions)
Kozier Text, pg 430
Next column would be Alternative or Revised responses for improvement:
Make sure you follow your schools
grid to receive all your points.
Didn't your instructor give you an example?
Hope this helps!
By the way,
Thank you Daytonite for all your help and understanding.
