Review the diagnostic criteria on pages 99-100; 160-161; 561-562 of the DSM-5.
A counselor’s own perception of psychopathology is extremely important in the diagnostic process.
Using the case study of “Tina” in the topic one lecture, write a 500-750 word essay in which you examine your thought process about her presenting issues. Include the following in your paper:
- Discuss the historic and cross-cultural perspectives of psychopathology that could potential impact the diagnosis and treatment of Tina.
- After reviewing the several diagnoses that could pertain to Tina from the latest version of the DSM, what is your diagnostic impression?
- Substantiate your diagnostic impression with appropriate criteria from the current version of the DSM.
- Discuss how historic misconceptions of psychopathology could potentially impact the treatment of this client. As part of this discussion, you may include a diagnosis, any referrals that you would make, and a general course of treatment.
