Case Formulation and Treatment

Integrative Comprehensive Psychiatric Disorder Case Formulation. Choose and describe one (1) psychiatric condition (Generalized Anxiety Disorder) delineating the diagnosis, etiology, prevalence, and signs and symptoms for assessment (including DSM-5 criteria and instruments helpful in diagnosis of the disorder).Describe how they formulate the case, the process for differentiating the selected psychiatric diagnosis, and the treatment plan guided by principles of evidence-based practice. Then develop a patient/client case scenario using the psychiatric conditions cited above (Generalized Anxiety Disorder). The student should develop the case scenario with usual demographic information, presenting problems and behaviors, and signs and symptoms. The case scenario should be detailed, but not include any identifying personal information if it relates to an actual patient situation. Integration of information from research studies relevant to your patient diagnoses should be included (be sure to cite this and all other resources and include in the reference list). 
The relevance of normal development, neurobiology, epidemiology, culture, socio-economic status, gender, and age issues should be integrated into the patient case scenario and assessment. Synthesize the information gathered from the case scenario as would normally do in assessing a person and summarize. Discuss appropriate screening tools that could be used in screening and assessment of case.
