Your mission (if you choose to accept it) is to diagnose a well-known fictional character (from a movie, TV show, book, etc.) with a possible psychological disorder. However, before your diagnosis can be made, you must first prove that you know what the disorder is. Next, you will offer a viable treatment option for this individual, based on the various forms of therapy discussed in class and in the textbook.
Assignments must be at least 1 page double spaced (about 250 words) minimum. Formatting will not count towards the grade, but spelling, grammar, and clarity of content will be considered.
Part 1 (25 points). Identify a psychological disorder and discuss specific research from the textbook and/or lecture (e.g., biological, psychological, and socio/cultural influences, prevalence, gender differences, etc.). You can also use outside sources (e.g., National Institute of Health website), but be sure to cite any/all sources used in a works cited section at the end of your assignment. Next, identify a famous character of your choice (must be fictitious – no real people) and discuss why you think he/she may have signs of this disorder. You should be specific by providing examples of behavior and/or other symptoms.
Part 2 (25 points). Based on your chosen character, and the disorder he/she may have, what treatment plan would you recommend? Describe this therapy and make a case for why you think it is appropriate for your chosen character.
