(a) Appraise THREE (3) plausible DSM-5 diagnoses which Wei Ling could have. For each diagnosis, highlight TWO (2) relevant symptoms from the case study, and TWO (2) other plausible symptoms from your own readings about the respective diagnoses. Apply the knowledge you have learned about such psychological presentations to justify the most likely diagnosis which Wei Ling is dealing with.
(b) As her counsellor, assemble a script to help explain to Wei Ling what her diagnosis is, and what she is going through. Your script should be in your own words and explain the 4Ps (predisposing, precipitating, perpetuating, and protective) factors. Do explain terminologies in a professional yet simplified manner. Include in-text references where necessary.
(c) Note: Wei Ling’s responses are not required in the script (assume she understands and is agreeable to what you are sharing with her).
(d) Develop an intervention plan to best help Wei Ling alleviate the symptoms she is experiencing. Your intervention plan should be realistic given your resources as a counsellor. Provide specific examples of what will be carried out. The intervention plan should address as many of her presenting concerns as possible and have a well-defined structure and a timeline.
