Read the following vignette carefully. After reading the vignette, follow the attached diagnostic summary template format provided and write a summary explaining your reasoning for how you came to the diagnosis in the problem list (OCD). If a differential diagnosis was required/considered, explain exactly how you made the decision to go with one diagnosis over the other. If comorbid diagnoses are required, explain why this was necessary and describe how the client has two distinct illnesses in your diagnostic summary. In other words, you need to explain how your diagnosis/diagnoses best explains the clients presenting issues. You must justify not only your primary diagnoses, but any rule outs you make. Please be mindful of Z/V Codes. A comprehensive diagnosis and summary is required.
Please follow the format of the Diagnostic Summary Template provided.
