Question description

Symptom Severity and Functional Impairment

How severe are a client’s symptoms and how do they impact a client’s functioning? Consider the case of Sami in this week’s Introduction. Sami’s experiences during driving had grown to the point to which she feared having a panic attack behind the wheel and was apprehensive about driving at all. How might a clinician evaluate these symptoms and incorporate the results into the development of a treatment plan?

For this Assignment, you evaluate and select an appropriate test to measure symptom severity as well as functioning and apply it to your virtual client. 

The Assignment (3–5 pages):

·Select two tests of symptom severity (one must be a mental status examination) and two tests of functional impairment from the Mental Measurements Yearbook. (Select from the list below and see attachments to find the tests).

·Complete a comparative analysis of the tests and select one of each test (symptom severity and functional impairment) which is most appropriate for your virtual client (my virtual client is Sean Brody) and explain why.  Link to virtual client:

·Justify your selection.

·Explain one limitation of the two tests you selected and explain why they are limitations.
