PSY615: Week Two Counseling-Based Personality Assessment Scenario PSYCHOLOGICAL EVALUATION (Williamsburg Mental Health Center) Jane Smith Date of Evaluation: 10/12/2013 Case No.: 12783A Admission Date: 10/8/2013 PURPOSE FOR EVALUATION: This is the second admission of a 32-year-old female to the Center. The client has 14 years of formal education and is employed as an administrative assistant at a local community college. She was admitted due to signs of major depression with possible psychotic features. The purpose of this clinical evaluation is to assess the client’s current mental well-being and the extent of her need for clinical intervention. ASSESSMENT PROCEDURES: The clinical psychiatrist on duty recommended the following assessments: • Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory-2 (MMPI-2) • Mental Status Examination • Review of Prior Psychological Assessment • Review of Prior Medical Records • Clinical Interview ASSESSMENT RESULTS: Note: Typically, this section reports test results of all the recommended assessments. Here you are provided with the abbreviated results from the MMPI-2, the Mental Status Examination, Review of Prior Medical Records, and Clinical Interview. Adjustment Level Jane’s elevated scores on Depression (T = 94) and Psychasthenia (T = 92) scales indicate her dissatisfaction with her life situation and feelings of hopelessness and inadequacy. Symptoms Jane appears to suffer from major depression, which is evident in her elevated Harris-Lingoes subscales on depression (D1, T = 101; D2, T = 89; D3, T = 80; D4, T = 99; and D5, T = 80). These scores and a high score on the Social Introversion scale (T = 79) indicate chance of suicidal PSY615: Week Two Counseling-Based Personality Assessment Scenario tendencies. She may withdraw from personal relationships and struggle with separation, which links to her depression. Perceptions of Environment and People Jane’s elevated scores on Fears (T = 77) and Anxiety (T = 80) indicates that she does not feel safe or comfortable in most environments. Reaction to Stress Jane’s elevated D1 subscale and low ego strength indicate that she is not able to cope well with stress, even under normal circumstances. Jane likely reacts to stress by withdrawing and isolating herself from the stressors. Self-Concept Jane’s score on Low Self-Esteem (T = 89) is evidence of low ego strength and a poor selfconcept. Emotional Control Jane seems to have a lack of emotional control with her depression. She appears to be struggling with feelings of hopelessness and despair. Elevations in level of depression should be monitored, particularly if the elevations extend over a long period of time. Interpersonal Relationships In addition to her depression, Jane’s score on Social Introversion (t = 79) indicates she is aloof, ruminative, and withdrawn. Other indicators include elevated scores on Familial Discord (T = 72) and Family Problems (T = 83), which supports the evidence that she may have turmoil in the family. Psychological Resources Jane has attended college and appears intelligent. She has some satisfaction with work, so she knows that she is successful on some level. Her high score on Negative Treatment Indicators (TRT, T = 85) coupled with depression may indicate a negative attitude toward therapy. Social Dynamics Jane’s parents are divorced and her home life was likely filled with conflict and dissention. Her parents were highly critical, which may be the source of her isolated introversion, anxiety, and depression. Diagnostic Impressions Jane’s MMPI profile indicates that she suffers from major depressive disorder and she is at risk for suicidal tendencies. Jane may also have a bipolar personality and problems with mental processes, but she does not appear a danger to others at this time.
