Prof. Kristina Daniyal Khan PSYC 221 – Introduction to Psychological Science Assignment 4: Psychological Disorders  Note: I thought the assignment was due Wednesday, I am sorry for being late. Part I – 20 points  For each of the following case studies, assume the role of a clinician and make the most accurate  diagnosis possible from the given information. Phrase answers are okay. 1. If you interacted with Ron briefly, you might think that he is a typical 20 something  year-old man. However, once you talk to him a little bit more, he started telling you some  strange things – about the government's plot against him and how they’ve destroyed  evidence of the 17 doctorate degrees he’s completed, and now suspect him for treason.  My diagnosis would be that he has Schizophrenia, since he seems delusional. 2. Lately, Sean has been getting into physical fights and recently got arrested for trying to  steal a car. When his mom went to bail him out of jail, she told police officers that she  doesn’t know what to do with her Sean, as he lacks remorse for his behavior. She also  revealed that this has been going on for a long time – when Sean was a kid, he would even  throw rocks at the stray cats in the neighborhood.   Antisocial Personality Disorder would explain his behavior, since he has no remorse for his  actions.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
