The clinical diagnosis and treatment plan for Christian Yang of Grey's Anatomy


This paper will present a five axial diagnosis and a treatment plan for character Christian Yang from Grey's Anatomy, which is an American medical drama television series created by Shonda Rhimes. The tradition of diagnosing a Christian Yang's illness or disease stems from medical practice. The clinical diagnosis in fact means to classify symptoms with the aim of describing a set of symptoms that the Christian Yang exhibits. The purposes of clinical diagnosis and treatment plan for Christian Yang are to (a) simplify and reduce the complexity of a clinical phenomenon, (b) facilitate communication between clinicians, (c) anticipate outcomes, (d) decide on appropriate treatment for the Christian Yang, and (e) search for and better understand the etiology of the disorder from which the Christian Yang suffers. This paper will primarily focus on the diagnostic findings and treatment plan for the fictional character Christian Yang.

As human beings, we are inherently social animals. We pay a great deal of attention to the behaviors, thoughts, and emotions of the people around us. Our interpersonal interactions occupy our minds for most of our daily existence. As members of a culture, we have various expectations about how others will behave and, in particular, how they will behave with us when we interact with them. However, there are some people who do not seem to follow the rules. Their behavior seems unusual, abnormal, and even unexplainable to us. Trying to explain the unexplainable in others is a fascinating topic. Most of us, at one time or another, have tried to develop some way of understanding abnormal behavior in others (Trull, 2005).

The act of classifying objects allows humans to comprehend the world. Classification is a fundamental process that all people have experience with, whether or not they are aware of it. From simple tasks like finding cereal in the grocery store to the complexity of creating a naming system for all living organisms, classification helps us organize our world (Blashfield, 1984).

Classification also serves as the foundation and starting point for all sciences. When a zoologist is presented with an organism that dwells mainly at the bottom of the ocean with a fivefold symmetry and fluid-filled tube feet, a classification system allows the zoologist to recognize this organism as part of the phylum Echinodermata, with the common name of starfish. A chemist is given a metal to experiment with and is told it is barium. Because of the classification system of the periodic table, the chemist immediately knows it is an alkaline earth metal with the properties of being soft and reacting with water and alcohol. Scientists rely on the structure and properties of their respective classification system to manage better the wealth of information contained within their fields (Blashfield, 1984).

Classification is the cornerstone of science for mental health professionals as well. Instead of being presented with marine-dwelling organisms or alkaline earth metals, psychologists and psychiatrists ...
