Admission will reinforc e the behaviour,and helps to maintain the cycle,if not associated with serious intent I would treat on O.P basis and reguler review. Asked about therapies-Psychodynamic therapy-big nod DBT-explain .started talknig about DBT and said -brief admissions for crisis resolution(remembered from manchester notes!) nd examiner asked if this is a part of a package and i said yes.she moved on to the next. NOT SURE IF I BURRIED MYSELF BY SAYING BRIEF CRISIS ADMISSIONS........... 2.A 30 year old L.D who can manage to find his way around the roads presents with increased levels of irritability and behavioral problems.currently living with elderley parents. Started rubbing hid genitalias and exhibiting sexually disinhibited behaviour in the day centre he goes to.staff are concerned that he is exposing himself to the school girls.

  13. Wishing everyonethe very best of luck.
  14. Thanks ever so much for the useful info Ross.
  15. A patient with psychotic depression is detained in the ward.he has attacked someone with the knife before admission.police want to interview him and asks you what he has told you.how will you manag? This is discussed earlier,however i am not sure!!!!!!!!!! A teacher who has become more sexually demanding and paranoid towards her fellow teachers.woud you break confidentiality and warn the other teacher if thete is signifiacant risk/ according to oxford handbook --you can if there is significant risk of death or serious harm. Does the above PMPs fall into this catogory where confidentiality can be broken?
