Differential Diagnosis of Disorders related to Anxiety, Stress, and OCD

What information do you need to correctly diagnose a disorder that could fall in the anxiety, stress-related or obsessive-compulsive categories of disorders?

The objective of this activity is to show you how a clinician gathers information and interprets it. In addition, you will be asked to make a differential diagnosis among a variety of options. This is a simulation of a real world situation.

There are many paths through the information gathering -- you get to choose and can even backtrack. You can try to diagnose before all the information is in (but I don't recommend it).

There are roughly 11 bits of information to look at (depending on how you move through the website) before you get to choosing among the diagnoses.
