Reply to psych questions!

So a fellow blogger asked me for some help with her writer's block! She asked what kind of factors should be considered when seeing a patient. And to answer I think it is important to think about all of the factors of a patients life. Many different diagnosis can be made complicated by differences in age, gender, and even culture. For example Antisocial personality disorder can not be diagnosed if the person is under the age of 18. Many patients are also difficult to treat because of culture differences. When doctors try to communicate with patients of different religions, countries, and ethnicities it can be difficult to communicate in a way that respects their beliefs and their practices. So in my opinion it is important to know all aspects of a patients life in order to effectively treat the problem. Hope that helps. Message me if you have any questions or comments!
