Fictional Character Analysis
The focus of this assignment is to demonstrate your understanding of the basic theories and techniques of abnormal psychology. To achieve this, you will present your analysis of a character from a favorite book (fiction) or from a favorite movie. Choose a character that you believe has a psychological disorder. The character from the book or film should not be based on a “real” person. Characters from television or web series are not acceptable for this project. Describe the character and his or her problems, using this discussion as a foundation for diagnosing the individual and for planning a treatment program. Make your diagnosis using the International Classification of Diseases, Tenth Revision (ICD-10 link).
Carefully take the reader through the steps you followed to decide your responses to the following required seven questions.
Compose your responses in a cohesive, well-organized 6 to 8-page paper.
Required questions (scored):
Communications (scored): Writing mechanics (i.e., spelling, grammar) (5 points); Organization (introduction, body, conclusions) (five points); APA Style (5 points)
Additional recommendations: Make sure you support your diagnosis and treatment decisions with outside resources. Discuss how and why your proposed treatments would be effective for your character, and in what ways.
