Many studies have been conducted on various ways to prove that medical treatments, therapeutic methods, family supports, community impacts have effected to person’s disorder. Phillip’s disorder might be getting better if he has appropriate treatment and therapeutic method. But Phillip needs to have a precise diagnose before treating. In order to help Phillip, this paper is designed to diagnose his disorder and gives him appropriate treatments.
