Etiology and Treatment

LASA: Etiology and Treatment

In M3 Assignment 2 RA, you reviewed a  case study about Jessica, made primary and secondary diagnoses, and  identified differential diagnoses for each principal and secondary  diagnosis. The skills you developed and the feedback you received after  completing this required assignment, will significantly help you in  completing the following LASA. For example, both assignments (RA and  LASA), require you to complete similar tasks such as identifying the  principal and secondary diagnoses, providing rationale for the  diagnoses, and offering differential (alternative) diagnoses.

In this assignment, you will discuss the etiology and  treatment of your principal and secondary diagnoses for the following  case study using a minimum of five peer-reviewed sources on etiology and  a minimum of five peer-reviewed sources on treatment. Your paper should  have separate sections for the etiology of each principal and secondary  diagnosis, therapeutic modalities for each principal and secondary  diagnosis, justification of the selected therapeutic modalities for the  disorders, application of the treatment for the disorders, and a  reference page for your sources. Your citations and references should be  in APA style, and your paper should be 8–10 pages in length.

Once you read the case, complete the following tasks:

  • Identify a principal and secondary diagnosis for the assigned case study with rationale for each diagnosis.
  • Describe multiple elements of the etiology  for the principal and secondary diagnoses. Explain how the etiology  contributed to each (principal and secondary) diagnosis.
  • Identify a specific therapeutic modality for each principal and secondary diagnosis.
  • Apply therapeutic modality to treat each of the principal and secondary diagnoses in the case study.
  • Identify at least one differential (alternate) diagnosis for the principal and secondary diagnoses.
  • Discuss key cultural factors that may influence diagnosis and treatment.

Write in a clear, concise, and organized manner;  demonstrate ethical scholarship in accurate representation and  attribution of sources; and display accurate spelling, grammar, and  punctuation. Include citations in text and at the end of the document in  the correct APA format.

Assignment Component   Proficient   Maximum Points    Identify a principal and secondary diagnosis for the assigned case study with rationale for each diagnosis. Identifies  at least one principal and one secondary diagnosis that are rationally  linked to the case provided. Provides detailed information about how  diagnoses were reached and how the client’s symptoms fit the diagnostic  criteria. Evidence is presented in a logical manner that builds a solid  case which supports diagnostic impressions.  48    Describe  multiple elements of the etiology for the principal and secondary  diagnoses. Explain how the etiology contributed to each (principal &  secondary) diagnosis. Presents  a clear understanding of the possible origins of the principal and  secondary diagnoses. Demonstrates ability to integrate and conceptualize  all of the information presented. Clearly states how the diagnoses/  presenting issue began (ETIOLOGY) and what may be maintaining them.  48    Identify a specific therapeutic modality for each principal and secondary diagnoses. Chooses  a viable therapeutic modality that has applications to the principal  and secondary diagnoses and is appropriate for the client.  48    Apply therapeutic modality to treat each of the principal and secondary diagnoses in the case study. Demonstrates  a clear application of the selected therapeutic modality for treatment  of the principal and secondary diagnoses of the person in the vignette.  48    Identify at least one differential (alternate) diagnosis for the primary and secondary diagnosis. Clearly  discusses other diagnoses (differential diagnoses) that were ruled-out  as well as specific reasons for eliminating these diagnoses.  32    Discussed key cultural factors that may influence diagnosis and treatment.
