Humanistic Psychiatric Diagnosis
SEE ALL DOCUMENTS ATTACHED.
An outline should include a brief two- to three-sentence description of each of the required areas listed in the Week Six Psychiatric Diagnosis instructions document attached, except for the following two areas here:
(1)Justify the use of the chosen diagnostic manual (i.e., Why was this manual chosen over others?)
.(2)Evaluate symptoms within the context of an appropriate theoretical orientation for this diagnosis (e.g., cognitive, behavioral, humanistic, biological, sociocultural, evolutionary, psychoanalytic, integrative, etc.).
NOTE: Be clear that you are writing about theoretical orientations and using the theoretical orientations to explain the client’s symptoms and presenting problems.
Do not use the theoretical orientations to discuss any therapy or treatment approaches. Your application of the theoretical orientations should answer the question:
How did this client develop the symptoms and current presenting problems? For example, “Based on the cognitive perspective, how did this client develop the symptoms and current presenting problem?”
“Based on the humanistic perspective, how did this client develop the symptoms and current presenting problem?” Etc…For these two areas, provide a complete draft of your justification and evaluation based on the case study.
You must include explicit information on the theoretical orientation chosen for the case and justification of the use of the diagnostic manual chosen?
