A PMHNP is meeting with the mother of a 10-year-old boy named Malik,

who has been depressed since his parents’ divorce. The mother explains that her goal for treatment is to help Malik feel better so he can become his “usual outgoing self.” She insists that she does not want him on medication. Which is the best response by the PMHNP?
1.     “We will come up with a treatment plan that takes into account your goals and preferences.”
2.     “I have a treatment plan that has worked successfully for children going through divorce.”
3.     “Because Malik is depressed, I think we might want to try to see if medication works.”
4.     “Tell me your treatment ideas, and that will be the plan we use to reach your goals.”
