2014). Native American spiritual culture has elements of religion that honor mountains, and earth gods, but each tribe has their own religious practices, and some includes Christianity (Dees, 2015). From the information given, I am unsure about the socioeconomic status of MR. Interview In conducting the interview, it is important to establish a relationship, building trust, and to be non-judgmental (Ball et al., 2015). MR should feel their concerns, time, and problems are important. Some people are self-conscious about anxiety and depression bur MR should be assured that depression is not an unusual occurrence. About 30% of the patients seen by the
primary care physician will have symptoms of depression (Dains, Baumann, & Scheibel, 2016). The risk of suicide must be assessed during the interview with MR (Dains et al., 2016). Questions Six target questions I would ask during the interview are: 1. What do you think is causing your anxiety? 2. How long have you been smoking pot and drinking? 3. Do you think the pot or alcohol helps or hurts your anxiety? 4. Do you want to quit smoking or drinking? (If the answer is yes, I would ask him how he felt about a substance abuse program.) 5. Who in your family has trouble with alcohol, high blood pressure, or diabetes?
