YOU MAY PICK THE FAMOUS PERSON AND DISORDER, YOUR CHOICE
Select a famous person who has been diagnosed with a disorder listed in the DSM-5. In a 5-6 page analysis, discuss how well the criteria in the DSM-5 fit the person. Analyze the person’s quality of life and how the disorder impeded or enhanced their success. Analyze possible treatments for the diagnosis.
DSM diagnoses are applied to symptomatic individuals who are brought to health care providers, which may result in labeling. But our understanding of the psychological conditions people experience is enhanced if we keep in mind that some ages and populations are probably more sensitive to environmental conditions than others. Selecting a diagnosis carefully and ensuring that it is evident in the client will result in the most effective treatment.
For this assessment, you are asked to think critically about the current diagnostic system and the medical model of mental illness.
