In this exercise, you will select a fictional individual to assess and diagnose with a psychological disorder while suggesting treatment.
STEP 1: Select.
Choose one of the mental disorders you learned about in this module. Think of a fictional character who you think might fit, at least to some extent, that type of disorder. Consider cartoon characters, Disney princesses, favorite sitcom characters, etc.
Step 2: Research.
Conduct research about the disorder and treatment methods. It is recommended that you conduct research through our Online Library (Link will open in new tab.) or use a scholarly internet search. Wikipedia is not allowed and you will need to include at least two different credible sources; do not rely on the same website for all your information.
Step 3. Write and Reflect.
In a 2-4 page paper, explain which disorder the character may have, describe the disorder, then provide at least three evidence examples of how or why that character meets the description of the mental illness. Identify treatment methods that are available for this disorder and develop a treatment plan for this character.
Step 4. Submit Your Assignment.
Your assignment should be in a Word document, written in APA format (12-point font, double spaced), and supported by research and in-text citations.
