Using the DSM-5 and the Z Codes (ICD-10-CM)
The DSM-5 includes particular Z Codes (ICD-10-CM) to assist the clinician in identifying conditions that are relational in nature. In making a formal DSM-5 diagnosis,
the clinical social worker should always identify from these codes any other condition that may be of concern and include the relevant Z Codes (pp. 715-727).
For this Discussion, read the case study “Working with Individuals: The Case of Sam.” Then, using the DSM-5 criteria, determine a complete clinical diagnosis for Sam.

Post your diagnosis of Sam in DSM-5 format (pp. 21–23), including the criteria you used in determining this diagnosis.
Be sure to include any medical information that is presented in the case.
Also, review the Other Conditions that may be a Focus of Clinical Attention Z codes (ICD-10-CM) and include this in your diagnosis.
Evaluate the level of usefulness of the assessment measures (pp. 733-748) in the DSM-5 and explain whether these measures are helpful in treating Sam.
