National Training Course. Emergency Medical Technician. Paramedic. Instructor's Lesson Plans. Module XIII. Management of the Emotionally Disturbed.
National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (DOT), Washington, DC.
This instructor's lesson plan guide on the management of the emotionally disturbed is one of fifteen modules designed for use in the training of emergency medical technicians (pediatrics). Five units of study are presented: (1) emotional aspects of illness and injury; (2) approach to the patient--assessment; (3) psychiatric emergencies such as depression, suicidal behavior, paranoid reactions, and phobias; (4) techniques of management including the use of the open-ended interview as a method of gathering information and of managing an emotional crisis; and (5) clinical experience in the psychiatric unit. Lecture, demonstration, and practice session materials focus on instruction in methods of restraining a combative patient. Each unit contains these elements: behavioral objectives, teaching procedures, a content outline, demonstration outlines, and lists of needed equipment and materials. Student skill evaluation sheets are provided. (It is suggested that each module can be presented individually or combined with other modules to construct a course for a selected group of students. CE 017 514 is a course guide for use in planning and implementing the total training program.) (JH)
