I’m working on a social work discussion question and need a sample draft to help me learn.
- Briefly summarize your case, highlighting the diagnostic symptoms seen in the case.
- Describe your decision-making process for identifying the key problems in the case and the differential eliminations for your case.
- Identify the diagnosis of the client in the case. Explain the diagnosis by providing the supporting DSM-5 criteria with specific examples of how your client met those criteria.
- Post a fully coded DSM-5 diagnosis. Remember, a full diagnosis should include the name of the disorder, ICD-10-CM code, specifiers, severity, and the Z codes (other conditions that may be a focus of clinical attention).
