This is a film based paper. I need a 5-7 page (not including the title page and references page) paper. Need to analyze a character’s illness and treatment from the perspective of a psychotherapist. NO PLAGIARISM! A+ PAPER.
You are required to include discussion of:
(a) The character’s diagnosis in terms of the DSM-IV
(b) A brief discussion of the apparent etiology of the character’s symptoms, and
(c) An in-depth analysis of the treatment prescribed for the character in terms of theoretical perspective: psychoanalytic, client-centered, gestalt, and behavior therapy.
Which perspective(s) is(are) being represented in the film? Does the treatment seem to be effective? What are the advantages and disadvantages of this approach? What, if any, alternative approach would the student recommend?
Here is a list of films you can choose from:
- David and Lisa (1962)
- One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Next (1975)
- Ordinary People (1980)
