PSY645 Instructor is strict in answering every part of the questions! Make sure to answer every question in detail.

Addressing and Confronting Bias and Prejudice

Prior to beginning work on this discussion, please read Chapters 8, 12, and 13 in DSM 5 Made Easy: The Clinician’s Guide to Diagnosis; Chapter 2 in Turning Points in Dynamic Psychotherapy: Initial Assessment, Boundaries, Money, Disruptions and Suicidal Crises; Chapter 5 in The Psychiatric Interview: Evaluation and Diagnosis; all required articles; and review the PSY645 Fictional Sociocultural Case Studies (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. document.One of the most important aspects of developing competence in psychopathology is to be as honestly and completely aware as possible of your personal attitudes toward people who have mental health conditions. Through this awareness, we are better able to challenge our own biases and prejudicial views in order to be more open to the findings within scholarly research.For your initial post in this discussion, choose one of the three case studies from the PSY645 Fictional Sociocultural Case Studies (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. document, and write a detailed description of your uncensored personal observation of the patient depicted. Describe at least one theoretical orientation you would use to conceptualize your view of the patient’s problem and how it may have developed. Identify the issues you might focus on in treatment with this patient. Be sure to identify within your post which of the three case studies you have chosen.

Here are the case studies…choose one of these case studies and answer every part of the question in full. I don’t want any more F’s.

Case #1 Frank is a 45-year-old male who identifies as gay. He stated his reason for seeking out psychotherapy “is because my boyfriend doesn’t want to have sex with me.” When asked about the frequency of his sexual activity with his boyfriend, he reported that they have sex at least once a week. While this tends to be the average amount of sex that couples generally have, he repeated, “You don’t understand. I just want him to have sex with me!” When asked to share his boyfriend’s name, Frank responded, “Orlando Bloom… you know, the actor in those movies.” Frank appeared well groomed with logical thought and poor insight into his problems. He denied symptoms of depression and anxiety. Case #2 Chrissy is a 28-year-old female of Argentinean descent. Chrissy was born in the United States two years after her parents emigrated. She stated her reason for seeking out psychotherapy “is because my family won’t let me be the person I want to be.” She endorses symptoms of depression and chronic passive suicidal ideation with a plan but no intent. One of her goals in life is to be an independent entrepreneur, as she wants to start a designer clothing line for pregnant women. However, this goes against her family’s expectation that she become a stay at home mom and raise children of her own. She appeared well groomed with logical thought and moderate insight into her problems. Case #3 Harvey and Tina are a middle-aged mixed-race couple who present for counseling after 20 years of marriage. They state that there are no known problems in their marriage, but they would like to establish a safe space to discuss issues as they might develop. While gathering history, you learn that Tina was born as Anthony and went through sex reassignment surgery two years into her relationship with Harvey. Shortly after going through sex reassignment, Harvey and Tina married. Harvey and Tina appeared well groomed with superior insight and no plans to use insurance for counseling.
