Question Description

Case Study of Kimberly, Parts 2 and 3

Review the two new scenarios in the Case Study of Kimberly, Parts 2 and 3:

  1. Do not mix the two scenarios.
  2. When you respond to one, label it as either Part 2 or Part 3. Then, respond to the other and properly label it.
  3. In each scenario, do not assume the other scenario is true.

Read both of these scenarios and submit your responses as part of your assignment:

  • Describe how the new information alters the picture presented in the original case study. Be sure to address how the diathesis-stress model may apply.
  • Describe your new diagnostic hypotheses, and justify your conclusions.
  • Report on any further diagnostic evaluation you believe is warranted.

Use the Case Study Response Guide to format your response for each scenario in this assignment.

Note: Do not merge the two scenarios or they will be impossible to decipher. They are two discrete scenarios.

Note: Your instructor may also use the APA Writing Feedback Rubric to provide additional feedback on your academic writing. The writing feedback rubric does not affect your assignment grade, but its feedback may factor into the grading criteria, if professional communication and writing is a course competency. Evaluate your own work using this rubric. Refer to the Learner Guide for instructions on viewing instructor feedback.

herself from school, family, and old friends. She began hoarding odd flasks and containers that
are filthy, has burns on her arms, and smokes an unusual number of cigarettes. All the while,
Kimberly exhibits a relaxed attitude as Diana voices her concerns. She is scruffy with 11
noticeable piercings, in comparison to her neat mother.
The information gathered shows that Kimberly has a younger sister who is four years
older than her who is attending an Ivy League college. ...
