The following are questions may get you started and guide you in this 1. What is your clients assessment of the presenting concerns? Does he/she believe he/she has a mental disorder? 2. In what ways does your client differ from the DSM criteria? For example, what are some behaviors that contradict the diagnosis youselected? 3. How might the clients gender/cultural background/sexual orientation affect his or her diagnosis and treatment plan? 4.
