Discuss the differential diagnosis
- “Bonnie: PTSD” (located in the Start Here area of the classroom –> MyPsychLab, Video Series link).
- “Phillip: Generalized Anxiety Disorder” (located in the Start Here area of the classroom –> MyPsychLab, Video Series Link).
(c) Discuss the diagnosis presented in one of the videos (Bonnie or Phillip). According to DSM-5 diagnostic criteria, explain whether the individual either meets or does not meet full criteria for the diagnosis in DSM-5, based on the symptoms reported in the video.
(d) Discuss the differential diagnosis. (i.e., several disorders may have overlapping symptoms. Which other diagnoses have similar symptoms, and why would they not be diagnosed in this particular case?)
