Diagnosis and Treatment Plan


Prior to beginning work on this discussion, please read Chapters 2, 6, and 7 in DSM-5 Made Easy: The Clinician’s Guide to Diagnosis. Additionally, please watch the video Beer Is Cheaper than Therapy: Fort Hood’s PTSD Problem . 

For this discussion, the patient for whom you wrote your transcript in the Week One Initial Call discussion has come to your office for a 15-minute initial assessment. As part of the intake process, you have asked the patient to fill out a biographical form that contains the same information included in the case study. Based on this information, propose three questions you would ask the patient to determine a diagnosis and treatment plan.

Provide a transcript of this brief initial session including your three questions and the answers you would expect the prospective patient to give. Beneath the transcript, provide a rationale for each of the three questions you proposed. Include the case study title you chose for your Week One Initial Call discussion 


A researcher wants to investigate whether women are better at   multi- tasking than men. She conducts an experiment where each participant is   given a newspaper article to read while dialogue is played into the room. The   participant is then given a test afterwards on the contents of the article   and dialogue. The score on the test determines multi-tasking skills (higher   score implies better at multi-tasking). The results of the study for 21 male   participants and 16 female participants are as follows      

x s n    Males 50.2   9.8  21   Females 60.5   5.2 16       .

(a) Is   there evidence in the data to suggest that the mean multi- tasking score for   females is at least 5 points greater than that for males? (Take α = 0.05)       

(b)   Construct a 90% confidence interval for the mean difference in multi-tasking   scores and interpret it.
