Scoring and Reporting
PSY 550 Final Project Vignette One Ms. G is a 33-year-old single, Caucasian female who was referred for an evaluation to clarify diagnostic issues and establish educational and vocational goals. Ms. G was born with spina bifida, but otherwise had no notable developmental concerns. She requires a manual wheelchair for ambulation due to her spina bifida. Ms. G never received special education or had an individualized education program (IEP). She completed two years of college but then took a leave of absence. She would like some guidance as to whether she should continue to pursue her bachelor’s degree, as the first two years of college were extremely challenging for her. She reports struggling academically and just “not fitting in” with her peers. From a mental health perspective, she has a history of being in and out of counseling. She is currently prescribed Zoloft and Xanax for depression and anxiety, respectively. She reported a fear of vomiting, and also reported generally being anxious and depressed at times. She estimated that she has been severely depressed on at least three occasions. The client reports concerns related to her inability to secure a job and not “knowing what to do.” She has noticed that she has been losing friends and is not sure why. She is hoping to gain further input around her psychological status as it relates to her anxiety, depression, and social concerns. Below are her scores from the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale – Fourth Edition (WAIS-IV) and Millon Clinical Multiaxial Inventory – III (MCMI-III).
