Teaching Plan

  1. 0
    I am writing a teaching plan for a patient with PTSD. U have completed the diagnosis and care plan. I am looking for creative ideas on how to present it to the patient and his wife ( classmate and instructor). Since this is a kind of depressive topic I can't think of a fun way to present it!?!?

    fun might make it seem trivial to the patient. My daughter has PTSD and her biggest complaint is that "nobody understands". Probably true, but if I try to lighten her mood she gets angry. I recommend you concentrate on delivering the information visually, as some PTSD patients do not really hear what you say. Their brain is too busy thinking about other things. Try to replace the vision in their head with another vision. I wish you lots of luck.

    It's not fun. You're not talking about teaching how to brush teeth or check blood sugar. Don't trivialize it.

    Have you looked at any of the VA materials? They see a lot of PTSD and have some really excellent stuff. You could also call your local women's rape crisis center and go over to speak to one of the pros there.

    I'm new to this site and am wondering where you went to originally post your question. I have to do my first teaching care plan and need help as well. I would like to post my request for help on this site but can't seem to figure out where to start. Any help you can provide with that would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Have you considered doing some role play? How will they respond to a situation (such as a flashback)? You could also have them practice some relaxation or grounding techniques.
