As you have learned from several of your readings, diagnosis of a variety of psychiatric illnesses is not always an easy or straightforward process. Multiple observations and assessment methods are often employed to reach a diagnosis. This approach can include the use of standardized assessment instruments.
Each week, you will be tasked with identifying a standardized assessment instrument to measure at least one of the disorders you will read about. You identify an instrument and:
Identify a scholarly, peer reviewed article that addresses the use of the instrument.
Discuss if the instrument is appropriate for diagnosing the condition it is designed to assess, or if the instruments developers report that the instrument is only part of a comprehensive assessment for the condition.
Describe whether or not the instrument can be used to measure patient response to therapy/treatment.
Discuss the psychometrics of the instrument including reliability and validity.
Discuss any limitations associated with the use of the instrument.
For week three, you will identify at least two (2) assessment instruments-that can be used in the assessment/diagnosis of an anxiety or related disorder.
