Discussion Questions

Put yourself in the shoes of a patient suffering from severe, chronic arthritis. According to the Crisis Theory Model discussed on p. 345 of the text, you would have to endure a series of changes in the way you think about and do everyday things to successfully adjust to your condition. The Patient Adjustment Model below is based on the Crisis Theory Model. Copy and paste the following into your reply, then replace the questions in italics with your answers:

Cognitive appraisal: How would chronic arthritis change your everyday life? Include one physical environment adaptation or one psychosocial change that you would need to make. Your answer must be 1 to 2 sentences in length.

Coping skills: What factors will help you develop coping skills to successfully adjust to the illness as you described above? Include at least one example. Your answer must be 1 to 2 sentences in length.

My greatest challenge: Reflect upon all of the phases of adjustment you described above that you would have to accomplish to successfully adjust to chronic arthritis. Which would be the most difficult for you to accomplish? Why?

In your opinion, which psychosocial intervention method discussed in the text (pp. 366-70) has the greatest potential for facilitating patients successful adjustment to a chronic illness? Why do you believe that particular method would be more successful than the others presented? What limitations might exist with that method?
