Discuss the differential diagnosis. (i.e., several disorders may have overlapping symptoms.

Bipolar Disorder

(a)  Review the mood, somatoform, and dissociative disorder cases (6, 8, 9, 10) in Brown and Barlow (2017). You will need the casebook, as I do not have any electronic access to any of the cases beyond 1-5.  

(b)  Review the following videos:

  • “Ann: Bipolar Disorder” (located in MyPsychLab, Video Series link).
  • “Feliciano: Living with Bipolar Disorder” (located in MyPsychLab, Video Series link).

(c)  Discuss one of the video cases (Ann or Feliciano).  According to DSM-5 diagnostic criteria, explain whether the individual either meets or does not meet full criteria for the diagnosis, based on the symptoms reported in the video. 

(d)  Discuss the differential diagnosis. (i.e., several disorders may have overlapping symptoms. Which other diagnoses have similar symptoms, and why would they not be diagnosed in this particular case?
