In evaluating the degree to which the presenter followed the ethical standards as outlined in Section 4 relative to the APA’s Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code of Conduct, it is the responsibility of the psychologist to aid and assist the patient in a manner that will be beneficial to the patient. Dr. Brewer met with Bob over a 6-month period with the plan to support him in overcoming his concern with career choice and life direction. Information was gained at this time concerning Bob’s life, friends and family with Bob being cooperative but becoming guarded when asked about family. The patient assessment occurred based on Section 9.06 of the APA Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code of Conduct (American Psychological Association, 2016). I do question if the psychologist should have hired the private investigator to locate the mother since the client had not signed a release form relative to his mother.
The beginning diagnosis’ for the patient of adjustment disorder with anxiety was appropriate until the gathering of collateral information from friends. The relevant information from the patient’s history that can be used to inform the conceptualization of the patient’s problems and diagnosis is the fact that while in therapy, the patient was cooperative but guarded with his friends’ sharing that over the past few months he has went through some personality changes while being suspicious of other people’s behavior, disappearing for weeks and not returning calls. The friends also believe that Bob may be using drugs which need to be verified.
In providing an evaluation of the patient’s symptoms while presenting problems within the context of a theoretical orientation that seems to be the most appropriate would be consideration of the psychodynamic or psychoanalytic theory and therapy. The psychoanalysis will emphasize the fact that adult problems’ roots can be traced to the patient’s childhood.
Based on the DSM-5, I believe that the differential diagnosis for borderline personality disorder is appropriate as there are mood, mood variability mode, and personal and family history of the same. Questions for other colleagues would include a discussion concerning the characteristics of the psychotic symptoms that can be useful relative to differentiation.

Mental health professionals hold grand rounds events to maintain their current knowledge of health care practices and to consult with colleagues on particularly difficult cases. During these professional events, mental health professionals sometimes present a case and seek feedback from peers regarding conceptualization and treatment of a patient’s problems. This interactive assignment is an opportunity to simulate a grand rounds event.
For your initial post in this forum, you will provide written feedback regarding your colleague’s presentation and questions. Your post must include the following:
Guided Response: Review several of your colleagues’ posts, and respond to at least two of your peers by 11:59 p.m. on Day 7 of the week. You are encouraged to post your required replies earlier in the week to promote more meaningful interactive discourse in this discussion.
Examine your colleague’s feedback and formulate a response based on your colleague’s questions. Assess the validity of your colleague’s diagnosis from a sociocultural perspective using the theoretical orientation from which you wrote your initial post. The goal of your response is to present information and feedback from your theoretical orientation for your colleague’s consideration, rather than forcing your colleague to take on your orientation as their own. Describe how your conceptualization differs from your colleague’s, if there is a significant difference.
Continue to monitor the discussion forum until 5:00 p.m. Mountain Standard Time (MST) on Day 7 of the week, and respond to anyone who replies to your initial post. Be sure to indicate whether your diagnosis and conceptualization has changed based on your colleague’s feedback.
