PLEASE USE HEADINGS & AND AT LEAST ONE REFERENCE IN EACH PARAGRAPH.
Write a 1-page response to the following:
1. Provide the full DSM-5 diagnosis for the client. For any diagnosis that you choose, be sure to concisely explain how the client fits that diagnostic criteria. Remember, a full diagnosis should include the name of the disorder, ICD-10-CM code, specifiers, severity, medical needs, and the Z codes (other conditions that may be a focus of clinical attention). Keep in mind a diagnosis covers the most recent 12 months.
2. Explain the diagnosis by matching the symptoms identified in the case to the specific criteria for the diagnosis.
3. Recommend a specific evidence-based measurement instrument to validate the diagnosis and assess outcomes of treatment.
4. Describe your treatment recommendations, including the type of treatment modality and whether or not you would refer the client to a medical provider for psychotropic medications.
