To prepare: Review this week’s Learning Resources. Focus on the case study of “Andrea C.” on pages 125-127 of Abnormal Psychology. Think about how a client’s gender, culture (including the culture of physical disabilities), ethnicity, family (or lack thereof), and possible religious background may help you form a more complete case conceptualization.
With these thoughts in mind:
Post by Day 4 an analysis of the cultural factors and related social and familial issues that you consider important in making a culturally sensitive diagnosis of “Andrea C.” (found in Chapter 4, “Clinical Assessment and Diagnosis”), and an explanation of their impact on the assessment and diagnosis.
Be sure to support your postings and responses with specific references from the Learning Resources.
