Review the instructions for the Psychiatric Diagnosis assignment in Week Six. This week’s assignment will build upon the work you have completed on your chosen case study in Weeks One and Two.
For this assignment, you will construct an outline of your Psychiatric Diagnosis paper. This outline is meant to provide structure for your final assignment, jump-start your thought process on your case study, and ensure you are on the correct path toward the successful completion of your diagnosis.
Your outline should be one to two pages of content and include a brief two- to three-sentence description of each of the required areas listed in the Psychiatric Diagnosis prompt, except for the following two areas:
· Justify the use of the chosen diagnostic manual (i.e., Why was this manual chosen over others?).
· Evaluate symptoms within the context of an appropriate theoretical orientation for this diagnosis.
For these two areas, provide a complete draft of your justification and evaluation based on the case study where Julia, a 17 year old is in college on a scholar athelete award. She is dealing with pressure of keeping grades up and keeping weight down to keep scholarship. Coach recently spoke with her about her performance and that her weight is hindering her performance and she started cutting back on meals and working out more. She lost the weight but still felt it wasn’t enough and friends started noticing and one contacted her mother who intern contacted the dean. Julia was called to the deans office and told if she did not go get checked out at the hospital for whatever she had going on she would not be able to participate in the running team. So Julia makes the initial call to set up a visit. It appears she is depressed/Stressed but certainly dealing with Nervosa.
. You must include explicit information on the theoretical orientation chosen for the case and justification of the use of the diagnostic manual chosen. Research a minimum of five peer-reviewed sources published within the last 10 years to support your choice of theoretical orientation and diagnostic manual. These sources will also be used for the Psychiatric Diagnosis paper. The outline should specify which sources will apply to the justification and evaluation areas.
