Week 9 Discussion

Please no plagiarism and make sure you are able to access all resources on your own before you bid. The main references come from the American Psychiatric Association. (2013) and/or Kress, V. E., & Paylo, M. J. (2019). You need to have scholarly support for any claim of fact or recommendation regarding treatment. Grammar, Writing, and APA Format: I expect you to write professionally, which means APA format, complete sentences, proper paragraphs, and well-organized and well-documented presentation of ideas. Remember to use scholarly research from peer-reviewed articles that are current. Sources such as Wikipedia, Ask.com, PsychCentral, and similar sites are never acceptable. Please remember that resources used must be from peer-reviewed resources such as academic journals. The assigned textbook and the DSM-5 are required for all assignments (i.e., cite and reference the textbook and DSM-5 in every assignment). As a general rule, web sites are not peer-reviewed except those which are online journal articles. Therefore, it is advisable for you to avoid using these websites as resources. Walden Library offers many peer-reviewed articles that pertain to the topics covered. While not required to use these articles, you should select a couple that you find interesting and which supports your critical thinking and analysis.

Please follow the instructions to get full credit for the discussion. Please look at all the attachments. I need this completed by 10/26/20 at 7pm. 

Discussion – Week 9

Diagnosis of Ka-Sean

For this Discussion, you continue to put your diagnostic skills into practice by rendering a diagnosis on a client, Ka-Sean, and receiving feedback from your peers. Remember, when developing a case conceptualization, it is important to consider issues of gender, culture, family, and other stressors that may impact treatment.

To prepare for the Discussion:

  • Review this week’s Learning Resources.
  • Review the example case of Caden from the Week 6 Learning Resources.
  • Review the case study of Ka-Sean found in Chapter 5 of Kress and Paylo (2019).

By Day 3

Post a brief summary of Ka-Sean in the following format:

  • Case Conceptualization (Note: Include specific information about client symptoms and presenting concerns.)
  • Diagnostic Impressions (Be sure to use the ICD-10 code, name of the disorder, and all specifiers.)
  • Rationale for Diagnostic Impressions (Include the diagnostic impressions using the DSM-5 to link the client’s symptoms to the diagnostic criteria for each diagnosis that you render. If you do not render a diagnosis, you still must use the DSM-5 to explain why you chose not to render a diagnosis.)

Be sure to support your postings and responses with specific references to the Learning Resources.
