Diagnostic Skill Application I

For this assignment, you will work with two case studies (linked in the Resources): •The Case of Jenny:  Jenny is a 29-year-old single female who lives with her mother. She is bisexual, but is not currently dating. Jenny was recently in a relationship with a man, and they lived together briefly. They parted amicably when they just did not seem to be enjoying being together. Jenny moved back in with her mother, Barbara, to allow her boyfriend to take in a roommate to cover her share of the rent. She works as a bank teller and makes a modest income. She felt moving back home would allow her to provide some financial help to her mother. Jenny’s mother raised her as a single parent. Jenny and Barbara have shared many ups and downs over the years. Things were never easy, but they always made it through. Barbara is becoming increasingly concerned that Jenny is giving up on life and needs to snap out of it. •The Case of Marisol:  Marisol is a 40-year-old single female from a tight-knit Puerto Rican family. She is employed full time as a data analyst for a technology company. She has steadily progressed in her career by working for relatively small companies, where her role allowed her to work relatively independently. Unfortunately, working for small organizations was less stable financially, so she has been working for a larger company for the past four years. Interacting with a larger work group has challenged her comfort zone. She prefers to spend time with a network of close friends she has known most of her life, with whom she visits one-on-one. Her family lives in the area, and she sees them frequently. Her parents and older brother have always provided a support system and practical help. She enjoys quiet evenings alone or at the home of her brother and his family. Her friends and family privately wonder why she has never dated or wanted to travel.  Download Unit 5 Assignment Template. Use it to complete your assignment.  Instructions  For each case study, you will complete a descriptive diagnosis using tools you select from the list of assessment tools provided later in the assignment. Each case requires the following information to be addressed: •Identify presenting concerns from the client’s perspective as described in the video and accompanying narrative. Include relevant cultural and systemic considerations that frame the client’s presentation. •Describe what information has been provided in each case that helps to determine which disorders are appropriate for consideration (differential diagnoses) for a final diagnosis. Evaluate how at least one assessment tool, which is listed in the List of Assessment Tools resource, will aid in obtaining further information to back up your final diagnosis. The Differential Diagnosis Decision Tree may be helpful to guide this process. •Present DSM-5 and ICD-10 codes, including relevant Z codes. •Provide a descriptive rationale for the DSM diagnosis that best fits the information provided including relevant ICD codes. This should be written in a narrative form using complete sentences. Support your rationale with scholarly sources. Optional readings found in the course syllabus may be particularly relevant. •Determine if a medication consultation is appropriate and provide a rationale with support from scholarly sources.  List of Assessment Tools and Supporting Resources •Beck, A.
