Discussion 1: Using the DSM-5 and the Z Codes (ICD-10-CM)

The DSM-5 includes particular Z Codes (ICD-10-CM) to assist the clinician in identifying conditions that are relational in nature. In making a formal DSM-5 diagnosis, the clinical social worker should always identify from these codes any other condition that may be of concern and include the relevant Z Codes (pp. 715-727).

For this Discussion, read the case study “Working with Individuals: The Case of Sam.(attached). Then, using the DSM-5 criteria, determine a complete clinical diagnosis for Sam.

Post your diagnosis of Sam in DSM-5 format (pp. 21–23), including the criteria you used in determining this diagnosis.

· Be sure to include any medical information that is presented in the case.

· Also, review the Other Conditions that may be a Focus of Clinical Attention Z codes (ICD-10-CM) and include this in your diagnosis.

· Evaluate the level of usefulness of the assessment measures (pp. 733-748) in the DSM-5 and explain whether these measures are helpful in treating Sam.

Discussion 2: Responding to Suicidal Ideations in Mood Disorders

Suicidality is common among individuals with major depressive and bipolar disorders. It is very likely that, as a social worker, you will work with a client who reports suicidal ideations and may even present with a plan.

For this Discussion, research suicidality and identify an evidence-based plan of action for a client who reports these feelings. Then consider the following:

· How would you respond professionally?

· What protocol would need to be in place at your agency?

· What personal emotional responses you might have to this revelation?

· Post a brief description of the article you selected that addresses social work action planning for working with clients who express suicidal ideations. 

· Then, explain how you, as a social work professional, might respond to a client who expresses suicidal ideations and what agency protocols might need to be in place to best serve the client. 

· Finally, explain any emotional responses you might have if your client reported active suicidal ideations in a social work session.

There are challenges to agenda building that if not dealt with carefully and skillfully can adversely affect an issue or a proposal that you are trying to place in front of a decision maker. On the other hand, no matter how expertly you build an agenda for your issue or proposal, some issues are going to simply be avoided or not selected for consideration. Why is this so?

In this Small Group Discussion, you explore challenges surrounding policy agendas and the reasons why some proposals never make it to the decision maker.

Post your responses to the following questions presented for Small Group Discussion:

· Many social issues do not receive the necessary attention from decision makers. Why might these issues be cast aside?

· Some issues lack sufficient support to ensure that they are added to decision-makers’ agendas. Why might this be?

· Some issues receive significant attention from decision makers. Why might these issues easily find their way onto decision makers’ agendas?
