(solution) Topic 1: Diagnostic Classification You just read a news report


Topic 1: Diagnostic Classification

You just read a news report stating that the rate of social anxiety disorder has skyrocketed in the past year, and reports on social media are calling it an ?epidemic?.  You have a friend who, after reading this news, discusses how she recently felt a little nervous meeting new people and giving presentations in class (she continues to meet new people and give presentations despite feeling nervous).  She is concerned that she has social anxiety disorder, and has been talking about seeing her primary care doctor to ask for medication after seeing ads for prescription medication on television.

Using (and citing!) the assigned readings:

You have just taken a course in clinical psychology that covers these issues, and your friend is interested in what you have learned (and is most convinced by information with citations!).  How would you respond to your friend?  (Please consider: how you would evaluate the claims made in the news, what are the factors that could play a role in an ?epidemic?, how you would explain psychiatric diagnosis and the difference between normal and ?abnormal?, etc)
