Psychological therapy alone conquered Puglisi’s symptoms, though it took a year. Write at least one paragraph defining the concept of “victim.” Read it and re-read it over the course of the next couple days. Eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing (EMDR) is a treatment that seems to work quite well for PTSD. The interaction between traumatic memories and the grief process should also be addressed. In addition, veterans may ask their treating clinicians to complete a DBQ and possibly bypass the need for a C&P exam. [77] However, it is important to note that the VA discourages their mental health clinicians from completing DBQs for their patients, [78] and similar recommendations have been offered to private psychologists and psychiatrists whose patients ask them to complete DBQs, [79] because it potentially creates a conflict of interest due to a dual role relationship (serving simultaneously as a treating clinician and a forensic evaluator). [80] [81] C&P psychologists have expressed concern that the DBQ "Symptom List" (Section II, Number 5 on the Initial PTSD DBQ; [f] Section VII on the Review PTSD DBQ; [82] and Section III on the Mental Disorders DBQ [83] ) [g] contains a series of signs, symptoms, and descriptions of functional impairment without any guidance regarding when these items should be endorsed. [84] [85] [h] These C&P examiners argue that such guidance is important because otherwise C&P examiners will (necessarily) use their own idiosyncratic judgments regarding when to endorse each item in the "Symptom List".
