Psychology

Daily, you may be bombarded with tasks, challenges, and obstacles. Naturally, this may cause you to experience an uneasy or overwhelming feeling. For many, this level of stress might be a phase of life. However, some may be immobilized by these feelings, unable to cope with particular situations. For many who suffer from these feelings, life challenges and adjustments may quickly spiral into a whirlwind of chaos and confusion.
For this Discussion, review the client in the case study within the Learning Resources. Consider symptoms or signs presented by the client for a diagnosis. Think about how you, as a future professional in the field, might justify your rationale for diagnosis. Consider what other information you may need for diagnosis on the basis of the DSM diagnostic criteria.
With these thoughts in mind:
Post a diagnosis of the client in the case study. Then explain your rationale for assigning this diagnosis on the basis of the DSM diagnostic criteria. Finally, explain what other information you might need about the client to make an accurate diagnosis based on those criteria.
A terrible feature about remembering is the inability to forget. For many in the military and armed forces, this inability to forget traps them with a particular feeling associated with a particular moment. As the rules of war are uncompromising, the traumatic scars, both physical and emotional, hold power in the lives of those who have faced war. Over the years, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) diagnoses have expanded to include victims of rape, environmental disasters, or any other event producing insurmountable and atypical levels of stress for an individual. When exceptionally stressful and atypical events occur in life, it is natural to feel discomfort or even trauma in response to the situation. Does everyone who experiences trauma become diagnosed with PTSD?
For this Discussion, consider whether the diagnosis of trauma always leads to the development of PTSD. If not diagnosed with PTSD, think about what alternative diagnoses might be possible for a client.
With these thoughts in mind:
Post a brief explanation of whether experiences of trauma always lead to the development of PTSD and explain why or why not. Then explain possible alternative client diagnoses.
