You will work on a Movie Project that will involve viewing and critically analyzing a movie that portrays a character with one or more forms of mental illness that we have covered in the class. With this assignment, you will have the opportunity to step into the role of a clinical psychologist.

1) Specifically, you will use information gleaned from a film to assess and diagnosis a character with discernible psychological abnormality(ies), and to determine the connections between these abnormalities and various forms of social‐environmental stressors/problems, medical conditions, and functional impairments in the individual’s life.

2) Following this diagnostic assessment, you will develop a case formulation in which you provide a plausible explanation for the individual’s abnormality(ies) and speculate on plausible causes, origins, and determinants of the person’s disorder(s).

The formulation is a theoretically based and research‐informed, yet individually tailored, explanation of how the individual’s particular problems, symptoms, disorders, distress, and

impairments relate to one another; and of how and why these problems might have developed and been maintained.

3) In this latter part, you will come up with a plausible explanation of the
etiology of the individual’s disorder(s) by identifying plausible causal, precipitating, and maintaining factors and their contribution to the disorder(s), applying your knowledge of various theoretical perspectives and research findings introduced in the course. Based on the diagnostic assessment and case formulation, you will briefly recommend suitable treatment options and assess the character’s prognosis.

4) Your discussion will conclude with a brief, critical assessment of the strengths and weakness of the movie’s portrayal of the particular disorder(s) covered and of mental illness in general, and their treatment.

5) You will want to take note of any inaccuracies, inadequacies, omissions, or creative liberties in the portrayal and consider ways in which the film (implicitly or explicitly) might echo and serve to shape societal beliefs and attitudes toward mental illness(es) and its treatment, whether negatively or positively.

The final write‐up should be 5 to 7 double‐spaced pages using a 12‐point Times
New Roman font, with typical margins (1.5” inch on left and right; 1” on top and bottom).
