                                THE CASE STUDY ATTACHED.. PLEASE SEE ATTACHMENT..

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 CASE STUDY ATTACHED, PLEASE SEE ATTACHMENT. 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. For additional assistance with this portion of the  assignment, access the Ashford Writing Center’s Sample Annotated Bibliography (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site..
