Assignment 2: Practicum – Journal Entry
Reflect on a patient who presented with a behavioral or mental health issue during your Practicum experience. Describe your experience in assessing and managing the patient and his or her family. Include details of your “aha” moment in identifying the patient’s behavioral or mental health issue. Then, explain how the experience connected your classroom studies to the real-world clinical setting. If you did not have an opportunity to evaluate a patient with this background during the last 4 weeks, you may select a related case study from a reputable source or reflect on previous clinical experiences.
