For this Discussion, review the client in the case study within the Learning Resources. Consider symptoms or signs presented by the client for a diagnosis. Think about how you, as a future professional in the field, might justify your rationale for diagnosis. Consider what other information you may need for diagnosis on the basis of the DSM diagnostic criteria.
With these thoughts in mind:
Post by Day 2 a diagnosis of the client in the case study. Then explain your rationale for assigning this diagnosis on the basis of the DSM diagnostic criteria. Finally, explain what other information you might need about the client to make an accurate diagnosis based on those criteria.
