Greetings, I am having doubts about the following answers I selected. Can anyone help me?
Certain behaviors, such as gambling, are often described as compulsive. Such behaviors differ from the compulsions associated with obsessive-compulsive disorder; because, the person usually derives pleasure from the activity.
I selected false because pleasure is not always experience but instead anxiety may be present.
Ryan was raped outside of her dormitory last year. Since the trauma, she has been experiencing frequent, severe panic attacks. However, she had no history of panic attacks prior to the trauma. True or False: Ryan would not be given a diagnosis of panic disorder, because her symptoms are better explained by a PTSD diagnosis.
I selected true because PTSD is associated with reliving trauma and as a reaction an individual experiences fear and or anxiety.
