GCU Wk 5 Psychopathology and Counseling Discussion Questions & Journal
I’m working on a psychology question and need support to help me study.
DQ1. Do you feel adequately prepared to comprehend the use of psychiatric medications by clients? Do you know the trade/brand names and the generic names of client medications? Do you see the need for more in-service training? Provide details within your answer.
DQ2. Have you ever felt that a client was over medicated? Does this reflect a philosophical attitude about being drug-free or some other perspective, or do you feel that physicians routinely use medications to “warehouse” their clients?
DQ3. Have you ever been concerned about your own safety issues during your practicum? What precautions have you taken in terms of vaccinations and other medical precautions?
