Discussion 1: Anxiety
Daily, you may be bombarded with tasks, challenges, and obstacles. Naturally, this may cause you to experience an uneasy or overwhelming feeling. For many, this level of stress might be a phase of life. However, some may be immobilized by these feelings, unable to cope with particular situations. For many who suffer from these feelings, life challenges and adjustments may quickly spiral into a whirlwind of chaos and confusion.
For this Discussion, review the client in the case study within the Learning Resources. Consider symptoms or signs presented by the client for a diagnosis. Think about how you, as a future professional in the field, might justify your rationale for diagnosis. Consider what other information you may need for diagnosis on the basis of the DSM diagnostic criteria.
With these thoughts in mind:
By Day 3
Post by Day 3 a diagnosis of the client in the case study. Then explain your rationale for assigning this diagnosis on the basis of the DSM diagnostic criteria. Finally, explain what other information you might need about the client to make an accurate diagnosis based on those criteria.
