I have been submitting case studies that we had to come with the diagnosis however, with this assignment we have to make the case. Please see attachment for one of the case studies you used to complete a previously assignment for me. Please do not copy the case study I am attaching it for referencing only.
See assignment below:
This is a “reverse” case assignment. Imagine that you have just been assigned a new client in Internship. From what you have been told, the diagnosis for the client, made by his/her psychiatrist, is Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Persistent Depressive Disorder (Dysthymia), and Alcohol Use Disorder.
You are to write up a “history” for this client, that will leave the reader with no choice but to agree with these diagnoses. As you report in your case study presenting “issues” or concerns that confirm/align with the diagnostic criteria for one of the diagnoses above, point that out in your narrative. For example, if “Ms. Allen reports having nightmares about the accident 3 or 4 times per week.” This meets the criteria for PTSD “recurrent distressing dreams of the event.” (citation)
You must provide background information such as demographic data, physical/biological/psychological/social history (ie: health, prior health, prior mental health history including prior treatment, medications, history of suicide attempts, suicidal thoughts/intent/attempts, family and work history, and so on. As in the other case examples you have been working on these past weeks, you must “make the case” for the client’s having been diagnosed the way he/she has been. In other words, you must include in your narrative how these disorders came about and what was going on in the client’s life, that ultimately ended up manifesting in these diagnoses. If you like, you can formulate a basic treatment plan, though it is not required.
This paper should be in APA format, with a cover page and reference page. PLEASE REFER TO THE APA FORMAT RESOURCES. Use your textbook and your DSM 5. If you wish to use any other sources, that’s fine but remember that “.com” websites are not academic sources. Three double-spaced pages of narrative is the minimum and the upper limit is 4 pages at most. Write clearly, concisely and be specific!
