You are assigned to do an intake and an evaluation of one of the patients assigned to you. Your patient is a 75-year-old woman who recently suffered a moderate stroke and has a heart condition. She appears solemn and depressed to you. You want to do a test of her mental condition. Your supervisor suggests using the Beck Depression Inventory.
