  4. 4. NBCC is pleased to report that there were no major structural changes to either the NCE or the NCMHCE as a result of the DSM-5. There were no changes to the framework or the competencies of either examination. The knowledge assessed is common to both manuals. Modifications to the examination content involved changes in diagnostic terminology only. From the NBCC http://NBCC.ORG

  9. 9. QUESTION: I already have a copy of the DSM-IV-TR and that’s what my agency is currently using. Do I really have to have access to the DSM-5? ANSWER: Only if you want to pass the exam. CounselingExam.Com
  10. 10. • Assumptions of the Exam • Rating Scale • Information Gathering • Decision Making • DSM-5 (You’re on your own here) CounselingExam.Com
  11. 11. When taking the exam, consider yourself an individual therapist in private practice, or working in an agency, school setting, group home or even a prison. You are a competent therapist and have a knowledge base to treat ALL diagnoses in the DSM-5. You can select assessment tools that are relevant to case study. Assume you have been trained to give or do an evaluation using ALL assessment tools. Assumptions of the ExamAssumptions of the Exam CounselingExam.Com
  12. 12. • You should not base your diagnosis on insurance concerns; diagnose and treat the client as you would in a “perfect world” • Once an option is selected it can not be unselected • Diagnoses, Treatment items and Assessment instruments presented in a simulation are "real" and do exist. • Simulations can wander seemingly looking like a specific diagnosis but along the way additional information is given that changes what your final diagnosis is. • On CHOOSE ONLY ONE options you have to continue selecting until you get the correct answer. It will not let you go on until the correct answer is selected. CounselingExam.Com
  13. 13. • There is no deception in the case study Example: Kelli's husband has just died and she claims that she is not upset and she is doing fine You need to take this as a true statement and Kelli is not in denial. CounselingExam.Com
  14. 14. • This is the rating scale for each of the possible answers for every question and they are based on the degree to which the client is affected. +3 Of central importance for good client care; omission would result in serious damage to the client in terms of COST, TIME, PAIN, and risk of MORBIDITY and/or MORTALITY +2 Strongly Facilitative of good client care +1 Mildly Facilitative of good client care Option Uncovering ScaleOption Uncovering Scale CounselingExam.Com
  15. 15. 0: Does not contribute to client care, but does not cause the client any harm in terms of increased cost, pain, risk of morbidity and/or mortality; and/or may be a controversial option due to regional differences. CounselingExam.Com
  16. 16. -1 Mildly detrimental to client care in terms of cost, time, risk of morbidity and/or mortality. -2 Seriously detrimental to client care in terms of cost, time, pain, risk of morbidity and/or mortality. -3 Gravely damaging to client care and very costly to the client's welfare in terms of cost, time, pain, risk of morbidity and/or mortality. CounselingExam.Com
  17. 17. Overlying Principles for Uncovering ItemsOverlying Principles for Uncovering Items • Everything uncovered should be directly linked in a logical manner - try to think “Diagnosis” from the beginning • Items uncovered should be linked back to the symptoms, problems, and level of functioning presented in the case study • Address and treat everything that is written in the case study CounselingExam.Com
  18. 18. If the case says the client has problems 1, 2, and 3, then you must treat all three problems even if treating 1 would make 2 and 3 go away Example: Hamilton is a student in high school. He spends much of his time smoking ‘weed’ with his buddies. Since this habit started, his grades have dropped significantly and his parents have threatened to disown him. If during therapy, Hamilton stops smoking weed, his other problems (bad grades, bad relationship with parents) will probably go away. Even so, you must address these other problems separately.
