suffering. Step 2 – Post (15 points) In at least 300 spell-checked and grammatically correct words with numbered paragraphs answer the following questions: 1. This video provides the case study with the diagnostic label of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder. Describe her symptoms that justify the diagnosis of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder: Describe at least 3 obsessions she experiences. Obsessions are repeated thoughts, urges, or mental images that cause anxiety. Describe at least 3 behavior-based compulsive symptoms she experiences. Compulsions are repetitive behaviors that a person with OCD feels the urge to do in response to an obsessive thought. Describe how the symptoms affect her social and occupational functioning, that is, her ability to live her life. Consider a rule out diagnosis, at least one other diagnosis that you would consider as an explanation for these same symptoms. 2. Remembering the chapter reading on Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, consider the etiology of her suffering – to what extent do you think the role of NATURE (her biological inheritance) versus NUTURE (her life experiences) make her more vulnerable to this disorder? (~ a paragraph) 3. Consider the socio-cultural CONTEXT: how might this diagnosis be culturally determined? How does her culture expect her to perform as a new mother – is she supported by her culture in this role or does she seem on her own? Can you imagine her behavior being viewed as “normal” in another culture? To what extent should clinicians consider the social-cultural-historical context when making diagnoses? (~ a paragraph) 4. THROUGHLINE: We all have obsessive thoughts and compulsive behavior – in varying degrees. For example, consider the superstitious routines (Links to an external site.) some baseball players engage in before stepping up to bat as an example of compulsive behavior that is considered normal in our culture. In another example, I always leave my keys in the same tray so I don’t lose them. Share with us an example of your own repetitive behavior that serves to calm your anxiety or make you feel better or lucky.
