Potter and Perry Chapter 33 SelfConcept Questions And Answers 2022 The nursing student can help geriatric patients' self-concept by using which technique? a. Discussing current weather b. Review... ing old photos with patients c. Encouraging patients to sing d. Allowing patients extra computer time - Answer- B Nurses can improve self-image by reviewing old photographs when working with elderly patients. This form of life review is helpful to older adults in remembering positive life events and people. Discussing weather does not involve personal reflection. Singing improves global cognition, not self-concept. Giving patients extra computer time is not applicable to improving self-concept. While gathering an adolescent's health history, the nurse recognizes that the patient began to act out behaviorally and engage in risky behavior when her parents divorced. In considering an altered self-concept nursing diagnosis, the nurse would gather what information? a. How long the parents were married b. How the patient views her behaviors c. Why the parents are divorcing d. Why she is acting out of control - Answer- B A nurse can identify situational life stressors that can impact a person's self-concept. By openly exploring a patient's thoughts and feelings, the nurse will be able to use communication skills in a therapeutic manner. This will facilitate the patient's insight into behaviors and will enable the nurse to make referrals or provide needed health teaching. The length of time married and the reason for the parents' divorce do not explain the patient's behaviors. Why the patient is out of control is not as important as how the patient views her actions when out of control. Based on the following data, which person is likely to have the highest self-esteem? a. Latino adolescent female who has strong ethnic pride b. Caucasian boy who lives below federal poverty level c. African American adolescent male who has sever acne d. Adolescent who was suspended twice from high school - Answer- A Ethnic and cultural differences in self-concept and self-esteem have been noted across the life span. Ethnic pride and self-esteem often are positively correlated. Environmental stressors such as low-income, body image stressors such as acne, and role performance failure often influence self-esteem negatively. The developmental self-concept task known as initiative versus guilt would occur in which person? a. 3-week-old neonate b. 5-year-old kindergarten student c. 11-year-old student d. 15-year-old high school student - Answer- B The initiative versus guilt developmental stage occurs between the ages of 3 and 6 years. If a child shows initiative, the outcome of this developmental task is to develop purpose. A neonate developmental task is to develop trust. An 11-year-old is into new skill mastery, and a 15-year-old is struggling with identity versus role confusion. A verbally abusive partner has told his significant other many negative comments over the years. In the crisis center, the nurse would anticipate that the patient may have which of the following self-concept deficits? a. Body image b. Role conflict c. Rigidity d. Yearning - Answer- A Consistent negative comments can cause devaluation of an individual's self-concept. The impact of negative self-esteem can invade all areas of a person's life, including body image. Role confusion is part of a developmental task (identity versus role confusion). Rigidity and yearning are not components of self-concept. Two 50-year-old men are discussing their Saturday activities. The first man describes how he tutors children as a volunteer at a community center. The other man says that he would never work with children, and that he prefers to work out at the gym to meet young women to date. The second man's statement reflects which developmental stage? a. Inferiority b. Role confusion c. Self-absorption d. Mistrust - Answer- C In the generativity versus self-absorption developmental task, a self-absorbed person is concerned about his or her own personal wants and desires in a selfcentered manner. Mistrust versus trust occurs in the first year of life. Industry versus inferiority commonly occurs in school children. Identity versus role confusion commonly occurs at the start of adolescence into young adulthood. An adult is adjusting to the idea of his chronically ill parent moving into the family home. The community health nurse would assess the adult son for which potential stressor secondary to the new family living arrangement? a. Role confusion b. Role ambiguity c. Role performance d. Role overload - Answer- D Role overload involves having more roles or responsibilities within a role than are manageable. Role overload is common in individuals who unsuccessfully attempt to meet the demands of work and family while trying to find some personal time. Role confusion is an aspect of the developmental task of adolescence and young adulthood (identity versus role confusion). Role ambiguity involves unclear role expectations. Role performance itself is not a stressor unless it is judged ineffective. A nurse who grimaces when seeing a patient's colostomy opening while changing the colostomy bag is most likely to have what effect on the patient? a. Assist recovery by using honest communication b. Motivate the patient to increase physical activity c. Promote development of a negative body image d. Develop a kind nickname for the colostomy opening - Answer- C Negative nonverbal reactions by a nurse to a patient's scar or surgical alterations contribute to the patient's developing a negative body image. Expressions of distaste by the nurse will not facilitate recovery or ongoing communication; encourage physical activity; or promote acceptance of the colostomy opening by adopting a positive nickname.
