Section 2
After reading Chapters 15 and 16 (, please answer the following questions.
This assignment will allow you to test your knowledge of the symptoms that are associated with various types of psychological disorders. In this assignment, you will play the role of a clinical psychologist called in as diagnostic consultant for five cases. Normally such consultants would conduct in-depth interviews with the clients, but in this situation you must make your diagnosis solely on the basis of the information in the files on each client.
Each of the clients will simulate a different category of psychological disorder from this list:
Category 1: Anxiety Disorder
Generalized Anxiety Disorder
Panic Disorder
Phobic Disorder
Post-traumatic Stress Disorder
Category 2: Dissociative Disorder
Dissociative Amnesia
Dissociative Fuge
Dissociative Identity Disorder
Category 3: Mood Disorder
Major Depressive Disorder
Dysthymia (Persistent Depressive Disorder)
Bipolar Disorder
Category 4: Personality Disorder
Antisocial Personality Disorder
Borderline Personality Disorder
Category 5: Schizophrenia
You will be given 5 cases to study. For each case, the client’s information has been organized into 19 categories. Although classifying a disorder is difficult when only limited information is available, the cases have been structured so that the correct classification should be unambiguous. As you read the case record, you should form a working hypothesis about the client’s condition, and then search for information to help you support or reject that hypothesis. You may wish to make some notes as you go along. For each of the 5 clients separately you will need to answer the following:
1. Identify the overall category of the disorder (see above). Be aware that no category is represented twice.
2. Identify the specific psychological disorder from that category, where applicable (see above).
3. Describe the symptoms that led you to your specific diagnosis in #2. How do you know this client has this disorder rather than some other disorder in this category?
4. What type of therapy or treatment would you recommend they receive and why?
