Read the Case Study for “Johnny” and review/score the DSM-5 Parent/Guardian-Rated Level 1 Cross-Cutting Symptom Measure—Child Age 6–17 form completed by the mother (attached).

Consider the following when reviewing the form:

  • What information do you gather from the data in this instrument?
  • What will you do with the information from the Level 1 Measure?
  • Utilize the DSM-5 Parent/Guardian-Rated Level 1 Cross-Cutting Symptom Measure—Child Age 6–17 Measure - to differentiate between issues associated with typical childhood behaviors and clinically-significant psychopathology.
  • Would you assess that “Johnny” needs a formal referral to a pediatric psychiatrist/psychologist/counselor?  
  • Assign the appropriate DSM-5 diagnoses for “Johnny” in descending order, from the dominant, to the least dominant.
  • What diagnostic impression do you reach based on the information gathered about Johnny? What is your rationale for ruling-out other diagnoses?

Write a 500-750-word paper about Johnny and your findings. Include the following in your paper:

  • The appropriate DSM-5 diagnoses for “Johnny” in descending order from the dominant, to the least dominant, and an explanation for your analysis.
  • A rationale regarding why other diagnoses were excluded.
  • A discussion regarding if you would assess that “Johnny” needs a formal referral to a pediatric psychiatrist/psychologist/counselor and the reasoning for your choice.
  • Include least five scholarly references in addition to the textbook in your paper to substantiate your findings
