answers must be your own words. When I ask for examples, you must create your own examples. Examples from the internet, textbook, class activities, study guides, other students, etc. are not acceptable. Do not use direct quotes in any of your answers. Please make sure to fully answer each question to receive full points. As a guideline, I expect 10 point questions to take at least 1 paragraph (8-10 sentences) to answer the question fully. I want you to answer the question concisely, focusing only on relevant information. Be clear, precise, and thorough in your answers. Do NOT search the internet for answers!!! The point of this exam is to demonstrate your own thinking about the topics you have learned thus far in the course. How well you do on this exam is based on the level of thought and detail evident in your responses.
Imagine that you are a clinical psychologist with your own assessment and treatment clinic. A new client has just scheduled an appointment with you for a psychological evaluation to determine if he meets criteria for a mental health disorder. During your evaluation, you learn that he has only lived in the United States for 1 year, and he reports that he identifies with a cultural background that is not very common in the United States. What do you need to be aware of and consider when interviewing, evaluating, and diagnosing him?
