Humanistic-Existential Psychotherapy

 Comparing Humanistic-Existential Psychotherapy with Other Approaches

Understanding the strengths of each type of therapy and which type of therapy is most appropriate for each patient is an essential skill of the psychiatric-mental health nurse practitioner. In this Assignment, you will compare humanistic-existential therapy to another psychotherapeutic approach. You will identify the strengths and challenges of each approach and describe expected potential outcomes.

To prepare:

  • Review the humanistic-existential psychotherapy video

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zl8tVTjdocI

Select another psychotherapeutic approach to compare with humanistic-existential psychotherapy. The approach you choose may be one you previously explored in the course or one you are familiar with and especially interested in.

Instructions

 In a 3-page paper, address the following:

  • Briefly describe humanistic-existential psychotherapy and the second approach you selected.
  • Explain at least three differences between these therapies. Include how these differences might impact your practice as a PMHNP.
  • Focusing on the video you viewed, (see link above) explain why humanistic-existential psychotherapy was utilized with the patient in the video and why it was the treatment of choice. Describe the expected potential outcome if the second approach had been used with the patient.
  • Support your response with specific examples from this week’s media and at least three peer-reviewed, evidence-based sources. Explain why each of your supporting sources is considered scholarly. Attach the PDFs of your sources.

Note: 

The School of Nursing requires that all papers submitted include a title page, introduction, summary, and references. APA7

Think about shapes you see every day in the world around you. Your computer monitor is likely a three-dimensional rectangular shape. The cake from your friend’s wedding was probably a stack of circular cylinders decorated for the special occasion. The tortilla chips you ate while watching TV last week were likely a triangular shape.

Research a geometrically shaped object to share with the class. Think notable, unique, interesting, but not too familiar. Yes, the planets and moon, but also consider architectural shapes like the White House, the Egyptian pyramids, and Bermuda Triangle are notable but are commonly known. Please look for something unique or lesser-known to share. It can be a monument, building, natural phenomenon, famous place, artworks, etc. Consider your country of origin for possible objects.

Shape of your choosing: Circular or three-dimension shapes like cylindrical, spherical, and conical).

Shapes composed mainly of your assigned shape but with other shapes included are acceptable. Remember to cite your sources using current APA formatting.

Returns

Estimating Returns And Deciding On Refinancing

  • Complete a 2-4-page, two-part assessment addressing two different hypothetical scenarios. In Part 1, apply a probability analysis in estimating returns for a company. In Part 2, recommend whether or not to refinance a home.
    Introduction
    By successfully completing this assessment, you will demonstrate your proficiency in the course competencies through the following assessment scoring guide criteria:

    • Competency 1: Maximize shareholder wealth.
      • Estimate the expected return for a company.
      • Formulate the standard deviation for a company.
      • Assess how the standard deviation clarifies expectations in terms of a return.
    • Competency 3: Evaluate capital expenditure investment projects.
      • Describe the decision-making process for refinancing.
      • Explain qualitative considerations in the decision-making process.
      • Devise examples of calculations.
    • Overview
      This assessment consists of two parts, each of which includes a hypothetical situation for you to respond to.
      Part 1: Estimating Returns
      Imagine the following scenario:
      A company is faced with a 20 percent chance of a poor economy, a 40 percent chance of an average economy, and a 40 percent chance of an above-average economy. The company would expect only a 10 percent return in a poor economy, an 18 percent return in an average economy, and a 30 percent return in an above-average economy.
      Use the hypothetical situation above to answer these questions to demonstrate the use of probability analysis in estimating returns:
    • What would the expected return be for this company?
    • What would the standard deviation be for this company?
    • How does the standard deviation help you better understand what to expect in terms of a return?
    • Use at least two resources to support your ideas.
      Part 2: Deciding on Refinancing
      Changing interest rates create opportunities for home owners to gain advantage by refinancing their homes. For this part of the assessment, use the following scenario to consider this issue.
      Imagine you have a $100,000 mortgage. Your current loan is at 7 percent with 14 years left, negotiated one year ago and involving $2,000 in closing costs. You are considering refinancing at 5.5 percent for 15 years. The closing costs would be $1,500.
      Complete a 1–2 page evaluation of the refinancing possibility.
    • Would you decide to refinance? Why or why not?
    • What qualitative considerations would you consider in your decision to refinance or not refinance?
    • Provide examples of calculations you would use to help you make your decision. In addition, use at least two resources to support your ideas.
  •  Additional Requirements

    • Length: Your analyses should total 2–4 double-spaced pages. In addition, include a title page and references page.
    • Written communication: Written communication should be free of errors that detract from the overall message.
    • Style and Formatting: Apply APA style and formatting.
    • Resources: You must use at least two references for each part of the assessment (totaling at least four references).
    • Font and font size: Times New Roman, 12 point.
    • Competencies Measured
      By successfully completing this assessment, you will demonstrate your proficiency in the course competencies through the following assessment scoring guide criteria:
    • Competency 1: Maximize shareholder wealth.
      • Estimate the expected return for a company.
      • Formulate the standard deviation for a company.
      • Assess how the standard deviation clarifies expectations in terms of a return.
    • Competency 3: Evaluate capital expenditure investment projects.
      • Describe the decision-making process for refinancing.
