Answer:

Answer:

Social-self refers to the image of a person as perceived by the members of the society. It is completely dependent on the social viewpoint and hence cannot be altered by the person. The resources of the client can be increased or decreased by designing an appropriate nursing care plan.
Self-knowledge can also be enhanced by implementing appropriate nursing care plans. The core self-concept can be broadened by an appropriate nursing care plan as these are under the client's control.
Hence, the options 1, 2 and 3 are incorrect.
Social-self depicts the social image of one's self-based on the viewpoints of others members of the society. This cannot be altered by nursing care plan as this is not in the control of the client.
Hence, the correct answer is option

Answer:

Answer:

Self-concept greatly impacts self-esteem, which is defined as one's judgment on his own self. Positive self-concept and self-esteem are essential for a healthy physical and mental state. Self-concept refers to the mental and the physical image of oneself. Self-concept involves physical appearance, moral values and social and religious beliefs that all together influence individual behavior.
According to the problem, patient Craig is a 20-years-old college student who has been subjected to amputation of the left lower leg due to an automobile accident. Despite being an outgoing person, Craig has become non-communicative and refuses to look at the leg while dressings are being changed and to discuss his rehabilitation program.
The following factors are most likely to affect Craig's adaptation to amputation and rehabilitation:
1. The student status : Craig is a college student, which would require attending the college on a regular basis. This may interfere with Craig's ability to get accustomed to his altered lifestyle.
2. Regular public exposure : Regular public exposure would interfere with Craig's rehabilitation as the public exposure will potentially affect Craig's self-esteem.
3. Loss of physical activity : Craig, being a basketball player and an aspirant for athletics, would face serious complications when sports and other physical activities will be completely eliminated or hugely reduced from his altered lifestyle. This would make the adaptation as well as rehabilitation difficult.
