I believe that it would be most appropriate to diagnose Miss Diagnosis with Borderline Personality Disorder, Moderate Bulimia. Borderline Personality disorder is characterized by a pervasive pattern of instability across multiple domains in life, including interpersonal relationship, self-image, and affect. People who have this disorder make decisions in the moment with no prior thought or planning. They are very impulsive.

There is now strong evidence to support the use of cognitive-behavioral therapy, coping cat, as a first – line treatment for children and adolescence with anxiety. Articles and researches showed that anxiety disorders are one of the most common mental illness disorders in children and adolescents, but they often go untreated and undetected. Identification and effective intervention of childhood anxiety disorders can decrease the negative effect of these disorders on academic achievements and social relation and functioning in youth and their persistence into adulthood (Connolly & Nanayakkara, 2009). Multi studies focused on evidence-based treatment interventions for childhood anxiety disorders, and on the effect of applied intervention like coping cat program on anxiety level in childhood anxiety disorders (Lenz, 2016; Podell et al., 2010). Although the literature covered a wide variety of such issues, this review will focus on major issue which showed in different themes throughout the literature reviewed.
This contributed to help understand the different emotions that associate with the diagnoses of ADHD. The different levels of aggression, depression, and other emotions renew the theory of why ADHD children are aggressive. The four attributes were studied in the range of different children. This study also correlates the teachers and mothers of the children to compare the change of environment. The studies revaluate that indeed a change of environment and the four different emotions contribute to ADHD.
Parents that have mental , and drug problems are more likely to have children with behavior problems . Children that are exposed to hostile environment are most likely to become sex offenders and non sex offenders. (Netland and Miner, 2012).

Case Study 2 Clara, a client with Social Anxiety Disorder (SAD) as diagnosed under DSM-V. (American Psychiatric Association, 2013). Aetiology Studies conclude that biological, psychological and social factors contribute to the onset of SAD. Five aetiological factors are proposed by Wong & Rapee (2016). These factors include: inherited tendencies such as shyness and avoidant temperaments, parent behaviours towards verbalising risk in social situations, peer experiences with teasing, traumatic or change in life events and cultures that require society members to adhere to ‘societal norms’. SAD can often be comorbid with other mental health issues including depression, substance use and other anxiety disorders (Spence & Rapee, 2016; American Psychiatric
The Case of Connie In certain tumultuous relationships, clients may sometimes endure various scenarios, which may not only be detrimental for them but for their children as well. Experiencing these stressful relationships can also have psychological implications for all parties that are involved and can possibly lead to mental health disorders, which may induce other critical consequences, such as drug abuse, physical abuse from the victim or even suicide as well. To further understand this type of scenario, I will provide an example of these circumstances by briefly describing the case of Connie. From it, I will construct and explicate my diagnosis, explain potential risk of suicide/homicide that may be present within the client and how I
On the other hand, postpartum psychosis is the worst form of postpartum mood disorders and is associated with delusions, hallucinations, rapid speech and mood swings, paranoia, agitation, inability to eat and sleep, racing thoughts, and, suicidal feelings. The manifestation, prevalence and management approaches to these conditions vary. Previous studies have shown that postpartum depression affects the mother-child relationship, mother-spouse relationship, as well as the cognitive development and behavior of the child. Although giving birth to a newborn brings joy to a parent, the occurrence of stressors has the potential for affecting parents immensely. These stressors are responsible for postpartum stress/depression and include; fatigue, soreness, baby feeding, high

Hoffmann and Spense (2010) argued that when strain is blamed on an external factor (e.g., parent, teacher, economic disadvantages, etc. ), youth are more likely to get angry enough to react in delinquent ways whereas, youth that do not blame the strain on others or external circumstances do not tend to get angry enough to engage in criminal offenses. The strong connection between anger and unjust treatment has been the focus in many studies.
Development of dissociative disorders in adulthood appears to be related to the intensity/frequency of dissociation during the actual the traumatic event(s) (Dissociation FAQ’s). Dissociation may become a defensive pattern that persists into adulthood and can result in a full-fledged disorder (D.I.D.). D.I.D. is understood to be a result of several factors; however, an individual that experiences recurrent episodes of abuse during childhood is more likely to dissociate and develop D.I.D. (D.I.D.).
Research indicates that trait EI self-perceptions and dispositions have a substantial impact on peer relations, social skills, as well as psychopathology and overall psychological well-being (Petrides et al., 2006; Petrides et al., 2004). Furthermore, researchers have identified that peer popularity and social networks are part of the mechanisms that prevent high trait EI individuals to show psychopathology, antisocial behavior and delinquency (Austin, Saklofske, & Egan,
According to Clearview Treatment Centers (2016), they say that “These fears of abandonment are usually related to an intolerance of being alone,” (Paragraph 3) These fears of abandonment can lead to more severe cases of manipulation or blame games with their partners to force them to stay. Impulsive and self-destructive behavior can also be a response to being left alone or abandoned. Self-loathing leads a major role when living with BPD. The author of “What is it like to have BPD” (2011) explains that “Everything is scanned for rejection. When someone with BPD is rejected, or feels as if they are, they will think that ‘this is my fault, I’m an awful person’.” (Paragraph 4) If felt rejected, the sufferer of BPD will either blame themselves fully or blame the other person.
