Psychiatric Diagnosis

Psychiatric Diagnosis

Psychiatric Diagnosis

For this assignment, students will investigate and propose a psychiatric diagnosis based on the case study from the Gorenstein and Comer (2015) textbook Case Studies in Abnormal Psychology, chosen in the Week One “Initial Call” discussion.the case study where Julia, a 17 year old is in college on a scholar athelete award. She is dealing with pressure of keeping grades up and keeping weight down to keep scholarship. Coach recently spoke with her about her performance and that her weight is hindering her performance and she started cutting back on meals and working out more. She lost the weight but still felt it wasn’t enough and friends started noticing and one contacted her mother who intern contacted the dean. Julia was called to the deans office and told if she did not go get checked out at the hospital for whatever she had going on she would not be able to participate in the running team. So Julia makes the initial call to set up a visit. It appears she is depressed/Stressed but certainly dealing with Nervosa. 

This paper will include an in-depth overview of the disorder(s) within the diagnosis, treatment options for the diagnosis, and a sound rationale that explains why this diagnosis was made. Note that the diagnosis may include more than one psychiatric disorder.

The paper must present a thorough overview of each disorder within the diagnosis. Assume the audience has no prior knowledge of the disorder(s) within the diagnosis, and provide relevant and easy to understand explanations of each for the readers. When writing the paper, it is critical to convey all the necessary information in a straightforward manner using non-technical language. (Reference the Professional Voice and Writing (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. resource provided by the Ashford Writing Center for assistance.) Support the analysis with at least five peer-reviewed sources published within the last ten years in addition to the course text.

The Psychiatric Diagnosis topical paper must include the following:

  • Explain psychological concepts in the patient’s presentation using professional terminology. Identify symptoms and behaviors exhibited by the patient in the chosen case study.
  • Match the identified symptoms to potential disorders in a diagnostic manual.
  • Propose a diagnosis based on the patient’s symptoms and the criteria listed for the disorder(s) in the diagnostic manual.
  • Analyze and explain how the patient meets criteria for the disorder(s) according to the patient’s symptoms and the criteria outlined in the diagnostic manual.
  • Justify the use of the chosen diagnostic manual (i.e., Why was this manual chosen over others?).
  • Summarize general views of the diagnosis from multiple theoretical orientations and historical perspectives. Include a discussion on comorbidity if the diagnosis includes more than one disorder.
  • Evaluate symptoms within the context of an appropriate theoretical orientation for this diagnosis.
  • Use at least two peer-reviewed articles to assess the validity of this diagnosis, and describe who is most likely to have the diagnosis with regard to age, gender, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, and ethnicity. Provide a brief evaluation of the scientific merit of these peer-reviewed sources in the validity assessment.
  • Summarize the risk factors (i.e., biological, psychological, and/or social) for the diagnosis. If one of the categories is not relevant, address this within the summary.
  • Compare evidence-based and non-evidence-based treatment options for the diagnosis.
  • Evaluate well-established treatments for the diagnosis, and describe the likelihood of success or possible outcomes for each treatment.
  • Create an annotated bibliography of five peer-reviewed references published within the last ten years to inform the diagnosis and treatment recommendations. In the annotated bibliography, write a two- to three-sentence evaluation of the scientific merit of each of these references.
