Ethically Sound Practices for Discussing a Diagnosis

In the Learning Resources this week, you listened to four Walden faculty discuss their experiences navigating potential ethical considerations related to the process of rendering a diagnosis. In these discussions, you likely considered how you, as a mental health professional, would be prepared to navigate the ethical dilemmas inherent within the process of mental health assessment and diagnosis.

In this Discussion, you will practice the process of rendering a diagnosis to a fictional client, Jane. As you are role-playing a conversation with a client, you will want to take special care to provide information in an easy, understandable way.

To prepare for the Discussion:

  • Review      the Learning Resources, including the case of Jane available in Chapter 9      of your Kress and Paylo (2019) course textbook.
  • Consider      the diagnosis that would best fit Jane’s presenting concerns.
  • Read      the handout, Jane: Diagnostic Conceptualization Example, in the Learning      Resources and render a diagnosis based on the case study.
  • Imagine      you are completing your second counseling session with Jane during which      you will discuss the diagnosis that you have rendered.
  • Think      about the ethical concerns you will need to consider when delivering the      diagnosis to Jane.
  • Review      the Kaltura Media Uploader link in the left-hand navigation of the      classroom for helpful guidelines for creating and uploading your video for      this Assignment. (Note: Please be mindful of the technical requirements      needed when creating your video.)
  • Record      a short (i.e., 2–3 minutes) video in which you role-play (i.e., do not      read a script) providing Jane psychoeducation about the diagnosis. Do not use a      partner for this role-play; simply speak into the camera as if you were      speaking to your client.
  • Be      sure to include the following:
    • A       discussion of the diagnostic criteria delivered in a way Jane can       understand
    • An       explanation to Jane about how her symptoms match the diagnostic criteria
By Day 3

Write a post that includes your formatted DSM-5 diagnosis with associated ICD-10 code for the DSM-5 diagnosis. Attach your monologue video to the post.

Be sure to support your postings and responses with specific references to the Learning Resources.
