Explain the critical-thinking process.

Assignment: Assessing and Diagnosing Patients With Anxiety Disorders, PTSD, and OCD
“Fear,” according to the DSM-5-TR, “is the emotional response to real or perceived imminent threat, whereas anxiety is anticipation of future threat” (APA, 2022). All anxiety disorders contain some degree of fear or anxiety symptoms (often in combination with avoidant behaviors), although their causes and severity differ. Trauma-related disorders may also, but not necessarily, contain fear and anxiety symptoms, but their primary distinguishing criterion is exposure to a traumatic event. Trauma can occur at any point in life. It might not surprise you to discover that traumatic events are likely to have a greater effect on children than on adults. Early-life traumatic experiences, such as childhood sexual abuse, may influence the physiology of the developing brain. Later in life, there is a chronic hyperarousal of the stress response, making the individual vulnerable to further stress and stress-related disease.
For this Assignment, you practice assessing and diagnosing patients with anxiety disorders, PTSD, and OCD. Review the DSM-5-TR criteria for the disorders within these classifications before you get started, as you will be asked to justify your differential diagnosis with DSM-5-TR criteria.
Review this      week’s Learning Resources and consider the insights they provide about      assessing and diagnosing anxiety, obsessive-compulsive, and trauma- and      stressor-related disorders.
Download the Comprehensive Psychiatric Evaluation Template, which      you will use to complete this Assignment. Also review the Comprehensive      Psychiatric Evaluation Exemplar to see an example of a completed      evaluation document.
By Day 1 of this week, select a specific video case study to use      for this Assignment from the Video Case Selections choices in the Learning      Resources. View your assigned video case and review the additional data      for the case in the “Case History Reports” document, keeping the      requirements of the evaluation template in mind.
Consider what history would be necessary to collect from this      patient.
Consider what interview questions you would need to ask this      patient.
Identify at least three possible differential diagnoses for the      patient.
Complete and submit your Comprehensive Psychiatric Evaluation, including your differential diagnosis and critical-thinking process to formulate primary diagnosis.
Incorporate the following into your responses in the template:
Subjective: What      details did the patient provide regarding their chief complaint and      symptomology to derive your differential diagnosis? What is the duration      and severity of their symptoms? How are their symptoms impacting their      functioning in life?
Objective: What      observations did you make during the psychiatric assessment?
Assessment: Discuss      the patient’s mental status examination results. What were your      differential diagnoses? Provide a minimum of three possible diagnoses with      supporting evidence, listed in order from highest priority to lowest      priority. Compare the DSM-5-TR diagnostic criteria for each differential      diagnosis and explain what DSM-5-TR criteria rules out the differential      diagnosis to find an accurate diagnosis. Explain the critical-thinking process      that led you to the primary diagnosis you selected. Include pertinent      positives and pertinent negatives for the specific patient case.
Reflection      notes: What would you do differently with this client if you could      conduct the session over? Also include in your reflection a discussion      related to legal/ethical considerations (demonstrate critical thinking      beyond confidentiality and consent for treatment!), health promotion and      disease prevention taking into consideration patient factors (such as age,      ethnic group, etc.), PMH, and other risk factors (e.g., socioeconomic,      cultural background, etc.).

Briefly, identify, and summarize each topic or issue.
Explain

Why each is worthy of critical analysis
Their importance to organizations in general
The implications for management
Their relationship to social change

Briefly describe your article search process.
Identify the Walden Library databases you searched.

Discuss the biopsychosocial (biological/genetic, psychological, social) factors that influence the patient’s experience with the chronic condition chosen.
Explain how your assigned system from Bronfenbrenner’s Ecological Model of Human Development (see Chapter 1 Section 6) affects the onset and management of the chronic disease. For example,

If you are assigned the micro-system, explain the role immediate family members and coworkers have in the onset of the disease (negative influence) as well as in positively managing (improving the person’s health) once disease is diagnosed.
If you are assigned meso-system, give examples, and explain why the patient may start or stop activities (e.g., entertainment, volunteering, sporting activities, etc.) within their greater social circle and community due to the health condition.
If you are assigned macro-system, provide a summary of two laws that are in place to support the patient in their daily lives as well as one law that needs to be improved to better support the patient, family or both.

Guided responses: Respond to two of your classmates. Your responses should be at least 100 words each. Looking at the conditions another student posted, address one issue not included in the post that you would have discussed related to the biopsychosocial factors that influence the patient’s experience with the health condition. Include your rationale.

Why do people speak different languages?

About two double-spaced pages, using 1” margins and a readable 12-point font such as Times New
Roman. That is about 500 words.
Identify a problem about language and/or translation that the text seeks to address. (For example:
“Why do people speak different languages?” or “How do we deal with a single word that has multiple
meanings”? This problem should provide the title to your response paper.
Quote from the text to show how the author addresses that problem, making sure to explain what
the quote means in your own words (paraphrase). Find a second example if you can, and do the same.
Apply the author’s position to a present-day example. This should be your own idea.
Offer a counter-example, a challenge, or a counter-argument against the author’s position. Does
a later quote in the text undermine the position you identified in step 3? If so, your counter-argument can be found within the text, so give another quote and explain it in your own words, as above. The best papers will engage with at least two substantial quotes from the text (see assessment rubric).
End with a question that your discussion of this problem has left you with. “If so, then what?” Keep your questions open-ended: that is, not answerable with fact, or by direct and immediate reference to the text. You are not expected to answer this question. Just show that the process of thinking through an idea and its counter-arguments has brought you somewhere.
