Vignette One

Jose and Maria are a middle aged couple of Latino descent. The couple has 2 children, both away at college. Jose and Maria were referred by their priest for counseling, due to Maria’s history of depression and suicidal ideation. Maria tells you, “life has always been a struggle for me. I was raised by my grandmother who tried to protect me, but I was molested many times as a little girl. I’ve often wanted to end my life, but my religious beliefs don’t allow me to”. Maria does report periods of joy and happiness in her life, especially regarding her children. She admits that during the last 5 years, she has had a few periods where she has actually felt euphoric, energized and elated with life. These times are brief and infrequent and, “I return to that suffocating place of despair.” She describes her husband as, “a good man. I don’t know why he has stayed with me all these years.” Jose is very supportive of his wife, but his worry about her has resulted in exhaustion, missing work and obsessively checking that all the kitchen knives are accounted for. He tells you that, “sometimes Maria cries out in her sleep and I don’t know how to help her. I worry that she will do something to end her life during one of these night terrors. Even though she’s never tried, what if it happens and I’m not able to stop her.”

Consider Mood, Anxiety, OCD and Trauma Related Disorders:

1. Taking into account the genetic, neurobiological, sociocultural, familial and environmental factors of assessment and diagnosis, what are your diagnostic thoughts for Maria? What about Jose? Use the DSM-5 criteria to formulate your diagnostic impressions for Maria and Jose, supporting what you see in the vignette that supports your diagnostic impressions.

2. Using the psychotherapeutic and pharmacological interventions discussed in the text, describe an initial treatment plan for Maria and Jose. Remember to treat the persons in the vignette, and not the diagnosis. Also remember to consider culture and legal/ethical issues.

Assignment Outcomes
Assess the major diagnostic categories of the DSM 5

Evaluate legal and ethical issues related to psychopathology

Consider the impact of culture and human diversity issues
