Anorexia Case Study

posted in: Research Paper | 0

After completing the readings and watching the videos for this week, complete this assignment.

Using the DSM-5 diagnostic criteria and evidence-based scholarly articles, address the following:

  • Describe the neurology of anorexia. Does the characterization of anorexia as a brain disorder surprise you? What are your thoughts on the personal and/or cultural implications of classifying anorexia (and other mental illnesses) in this way, as opposed to a lifestyle choice or a matter of willpower? How might you support a family (or client) who is resistant to this interpretation?
  • Describe and discuss changes in personality and social behavior that might be seen with anorexia. How would you assess for these changes?
  • Provide an overview of the health consequences and medical complications of anorexia
  • Create a treatment plan for a client with anorexia using family-based therapy or other evidence-based therapy.

Criteria for this paper:

  • Answer these questions succinctly but completely, integrating resources to provide rationale for all decisions.
  • Use APA formatting for all components of your paper.
  • You may use narrative, bullets, or a table format for various sections of this discussion assignment.
  • Your paper should be approximately two to three pages long, not including the reference page.
  • Use at least one nursing journal reference from CINAHL to support your rationale.
