The patient has an average WAIS-IV score of over 100. It means that she has average IQ (Choi, 2020). According to MMPI-2, scale 1 shows that she is in chronic pain. Scale 2 depicts unworthiness, scale 3 shows she is hysterical, and scale 4 depicts self-centeredness (Glassmire et al., 2019). However, considering that she is an intelligent woman, she should take advantage of her antidepressant medication. Ms. Z needs to return to school to complete her four-year degree. Her condition will stabilize if she continues to use the medication that has been prescribed. Despite her depressed mood continuing, she needs to take care of her children.
