Perceptions: no evidence of illusion, no evidence of hallucinations. Memory is intact and age appropriate. Attention is easily distracted, fidgety and restless. Differential Diagnoses: Depression: One resulting from the mental evaluation of the patient is a depressive mood that is accompanied by an adjustment disorder (APA, 2020). The patient reports that feeling depressed or sad mood endorses diminished interest or pleasure in activities and endorses changes in sleep and endorses fatigue or loss of energy, endorses suicidal ideation, and endorses symptoms that cause clinical distress or impairment. One of the three possible differential diagnoses is depression disorder (Zhang et al., 2018).Generalized Anxiety: The patient experiences excessive anxiety and worry more days than not and endorses difficulty in controlling worry and endorses restlessness or feeling on edge, and endorses being easily fatigued, and endorses muscle tension, and endorses, sleep disturbances, and endorses anxiety and worry cause distress. Psychological flexibility was significantly correlated with perceived stress, General anxiety, and depression. Multiple regression analyses showed the possible mediation effect of psychological flexibility between perceived stress and general anxiety or depression (Huang et al., 2021).Posttraumatic disorder: A pathological reaction to extreme life events. The trigger is an extraordinary though common adverse life event. The consequence is severe and long-lasting. Expose to actual or threatened death, severe injury, or sexual violence indirectly experiencing the traumatic events and states repeated or extreme exposure to aversive details of the traumatic events (APA, 2020). The patient reports physical and mental abuse from his father and mother growing up. The patient has witnessed domestic violence. The patient reports directly experiencing a traumatic event. Social Anxiety: He endorses fear or anxiety in a social situation where the individual is exposed to scrutiny and sanctions individual worries. His actions will be negatively evaluated and support that social situation. The social problems are avoided or supported with hearing or anxiety and evidence that fear or anxiety s out of proportion to the context, evidence that symptoms are persistent and lasting longer than six months, and evidence that fear or anxiety or avoidance cause significant impairment. Social Anxiety disorder is known by irrational behavior and altitude towards daily activities (Leichsenring & Leweke, 2017).When you are stressed: stop what you are doing and step away from the situation. Take a few deep breaths. Review the case and act on what you want to do. Relaxation is a recreation that people engage in after working or engaging in any other physically or mentally demanding activity. A relaxed person tendency has lower blood pressure, less stress, slow heartbeat and breathing rate, and more confidence in dealing with challenges. Relaxation can be as simple as sleeping longer, reading a book, exercising, or traveling. Relaxation displays a mental state of peace and serenity in which anxiety and stress are absent. Stress is a mental or emotional tension caused by difficult, unfavorable, or potentially dangerous situations (Ruth, 2020). Yanah Kuscianah Kuswa’s research (2021) uses progressive muscle relaxation techniques on schizophrenic patients with anxiety-related problems, and the results show that muscle relaxation interventions reduce patient anxiety levels. After receiving progressive muscle relaxation, the patient’s anxiety decreased by 30.34% on average.Reflections: Several significant issues have been presented in this case. For example, the number of people with different mental disorders is rising. I have learned psychotherapy how to assess a patient’s background. Pt is needed support and coping skills. The trauma history issues with sexuality and history of bullying. An accurate diagnosis is crucial to studying and recognizing factors and stressors (Sadock et al., 2015). The patient will begin outpatient therapy, focusing on coping skills. The ethical and legal aspects should be carefully measured during the patient’s interview. Under the patient’s consent, psychotherapy and medications management is essential. It is necessary to help determine if thoughts are psychotic or suicidal thoughts to ensure to safety of the patient. Case Formulation and Treatment Plan: The patient will begin individual outpatient therapy at this clinic. Initial treatment focused will be coping skills—patient request for Medication Evaluation. A detailed treatment plan will be developed at the next session. Call 911 or ER if acute worsening of symptoms, decompensation, or thoughts of harming self. Mobile Crisis Management provides immediate crisis response 24 hours a day, 7 days a week 1-877-626-1772.
