Write a 500-750-word paper about Johnny and your findings. Include the following in your paper:
What information/data did you gather from the most current version of DSM Parent/Guardian-Rated Level 1 Cross-Cutting Symptom Measure?
What will you do next based on the information from the Level 1 Measure?
Identify the appropriate principal and provisional DSM diagnoses for “Johnny” and the rationale for each diagnosis given.
What additional information do you need to either rule-in or rule-out the provisional diagnosis? Develop 5 questions you would ask (and to whom) to gather more information to support your decision. Provide a rationale for each question proposed.
As a crisis counselor in a hospital setting, you will most likely come in contact with patients only once for an initial assessment. After the assessment is completed and you have identified the principal and or provisional diagnosis, what referrals and treatment recommendations would you make for Johnny?
At least five scholarly references in addition to the textbook in your paper to substantiate your findings.
