Psychology Expository Paper

For this assignment you will be writing a 3–4 page expository paper. This assignment provides practice in using the Diagnostic Statistical Manual-5 (DSM-5) to make co-occurring diagnoses of clients who suffer from mental health and addiction disorders

Watch the Case Study: Brandi (click here for transcripts). I HAVE ATTACHED THE TRANSCRIPT

Use the DSM-5 to analyze Brandi’s symptoms and determine a diagnosis. Once you have settled on a diagnosis, draw up an individualized treatment plan. Discuss treatment modalities that are appropriate for treating those with a co-occurring mental disorder or disability. How can you apply stage-wise treatment to Brandi’s crisis?

Support your work with materials from the DSM-5, the text, and at least one outside source (be sure it is a scholarly source).

The body of your expository paper should be at least 3 pages in length:

  • Writing is to be logical, well-ordered, and insightful
  • Use APA formatting and citation guidelines
  • 12-point Times New Roman font
  • Double spaced and use Standard English

Include three to five scholarly peer-reviewed references obtained from the university library directly related to research-based theories of family systems and approaches to family and community involvement. The Writing Center has information on how to use APA formatting
