Using DSM-5 to Diagnose Clients

 Diagnosing Clients Using DSM-5

Select two clients you observed or counseled this week during a group therapy session. Note: The two clients you select must have attended the same group session. (Grandfather with His Granddaughter) Grandfather has a history of Bi-polar, Granddaughter has history of Bi-polar and drug addiction) Describe each client (without violating HIPAA regulations), and identify any pertinent history or
medical information, including prescribed medications. Using the DSM-5, explain and justify your diagnosis for each client. Explain whether cognitive behavioral therapy would be effective with this group. Include expected outcomes based on this therapeutic approach. Explain any legal and/or ethical implications related to counseling each client. Support your approach with evidence-based literature. (Will send an example of a journal to use as a guideline and format)
