how his/her family/personal background affects the issue, what he/she feels, how he/she deals with his/her emotions or copes with problems)? This section should be about 1 page.

 

2. State the psychiatric disorder that the character demonstrates (i.e., Borderline Personality Disorder, OCD, Major Depressive Disorder, etc.).

Describe how the character demonstrates the symptoms for the disorder. You can also use the DSM-V criteria. The symptoms are in the book

and criteria are in the powerpoint slides for the disorders we have covered so far. If you cannot  find the DSM-V criteria, please contact your TA. Share

specific examples of the character’s  behaviors, statements or ways of thinking that specifically support your view that they meet criteria for this disorder. Make sure to make an argument and link your character’s symptom presentation to the disorder you believe he/she has. 2-2.5 pages.

 

3. Having described the character and their disorder, describe the etiology of the disorder drawing on lectures, textbooks, and journal articles.You need to specify the type of biological, psychological and social dimensions that may come together to bring about the disorder. 1 – 1.5

pages.

 

4. After describing the etiology, describe the treatment you would recommend for this character, drawing on what you learned in lectures, the textbook or other readings. It is not enough to say psychotherapy or medication; you must specify the type of therapy or class of medication and

explain why you would recommend that course of treatment. 1-1.5 pages.
