- Remember that the Differential Diagnosis section is important. I want to know that you considered all relevant diagnoses and what led you to rule them out.
- Explain your reasoning for each element of the diagnosis.

He presents to your office stating that he has a history of problems in relationships, but his last relationship has him really “rocked” and he “doesn’t know how to understand it.” He said that he just got out of a relationship with a woman who was “totally controlling.” He states that his ex is an executive and that part of him is “really attracted to the fact that she is so totally powerful.” He says that he actually liked, and now misses, how controlling she was. He says that they were close friends, and then one night after dinner, about a year and a half ago, he asked her to take him to a “play party,” knowing that she was familiar with such events.
