Week Five
Programmatic Assessment

Scenario

Abby is
a 20-year-old female college student. For at least the last 3 months, Abby has
experienced ongoing anxiety and worry without a specific cause for these
feelings. She has been restless and has noticed that her muscles feel tense and
that these symptoms are beginning to affect her behavior in a way that is
causing her to become distressed and that is preventing her from being able to
complete her normal tasks. Abby correctly believed that it was normal to feel a
little anxious sometimes; however, as the semester has progressed, she has not
begun to feel significantly more comfortable.

 

On the
recommendation of a friend, Abby visited the university’s counseling center and
talked to Dr. Smith. Dr. Smith was warm and welcoming and, after discussing the
limits of confidentiality with Abby and obtaining informed consent, encouraged
Abby to describe her concerns. Dr. Smith listened attentively and asked Abby a
few questions. They both agreed on an appointment date and time for the next
week. Dr. Smith gave Abby a homework assignment to keep a written log of the
negative thoughts or assumptions she has during the week and the circumstances
under which those thoughts occurred. Abby was asked to bring the log with her
to her next appointment.

1.    
Which DSM-5 disorder matches the symptoms

7.    
If instead of the symptoms listed in the
scenario, Abby reported the following:



She had been in a car accident where she feared for her life. She had sleep
disturbances including nightmares and became uncomfortable at the thought of
driving, to the point that she avoided driving. She now believes she is a
horrible driver, although her friends assure her this is not true. If these
symptoms have lasted for longer than a month, which DSM-5 disorder label might
match her symptoms?





8.    
If instead of the symptoms listed in the
scenario, Abby reported the following:



Every day for the past 2 weeks she felt down or sad for most of the day, had
noticed an increase in her appetite, had been unable to sleep or concentrate,
and felt tired. Additionally, this was interfering with her goals and tasks,
and she reported that she had never felt manic or hypomanic. Which DSM-5
disorder label might match her symptoms?

 

9.    
If instead of the symptoms listed in the
scenario, Abby reported the following:



Every day for at least the past week she felt irritable with persistently
increased energy and talkativeness, was easily distracted, did not seem to need
sleep, and noticed that this behavior was interfering with her job. She
reported that she has felt these symptoms before in her past and that she has
also felt depressed sometimes. Which DSM-5 disorder label might match her
symptoms?

 

10.  
If instead of the symptoms listed in the scenario,
Abby reported the following:



Throughout her life, she has always been suspicious of others. She reports that
she really would like to have good relationships, but even as a child she knew
that others, including family members, could not be trusted. She feels that she
needs to stay on guard to protect herself. Which DSM-5 disorder label might
match her symptoms?

 

11.  
If instead of the symptoms listed in the
scenario, Abby reported the following:



She began drinking when she was 18 and now needs to drink more or higher
concentrations of alcohol to continue to function. She reports that she has
lost her part-time job because of her drinking and is in danger of failing out
of college. She was hospitalized last weekend due to experiencing delirium
tremens during withdrawal, and the doctor explained to her that she could die
from this disorder. Abby recognized that her drinking was interfering with her
life, and she knew that she did not want to die. Which DSM-5 disorder label
might match her symptoms?

 

12.  
If instead of the symptoms listed in the
scenario, Abby’s former roommate reported the following:



During a significant portion of the past month, Abby had talked to herself out
loud and told her roommate that she had heard voices telling her to harm
herself. Her roommate reported that Abby had told her that she occasionally
stated that she was Joan of Arc and that the school mascot was stalking her.
Her roommate asked to change rooms, and now that Abby was living alone, she did
not appear to have bathed in more than a week. This was not typical behavior
for Abby, as she had been known to be meticulous with her appearance and
hygiene. The roommate expressed her concern for Abby and stated that although
she had noticed some of these behaviors since she first met Abby more than 6
months ago, the behaviors seem to have increased over the past month. Which
DSM-5 disorder label might match her symptoms?

If Abby were 67 years old, and instead of the

substantial decline in the cognitive functioning areas of memory and attention
that interfere with her independence, what DSM-5 disorder label might match her
symptoms?
