Include a discussion on comorbidity if the diagnosis includes more than one disorder. • Evaluate symptoms within the context of an appropriate theoretical orientation for this diagnosis. • Use at least two peer-reviewed articles to assess the validity of this diagnosis, and describe who is most likely to have the diagnosis with regard to age, gender, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, and ethnicity.
