Pick a character from a favorite book (fiction or nonfiction) or from a favorite movie. Choose a character whom you believe to have a psychological disorder (e.g., Sylvia Plath, Antwone Fisher). Describe the character and his or her problems, using this discussion as a foundation for diagnosing the individual and planning a treatment program. Make your diagnosis using the DSM-IV multiaxial system.
Carefully take the reader through the steps you followed to decide on a diagnosis (using all five axes) and a type of treatment (e.g., therapy, possible medication, referrals to other professionals). Describe any other recommendations you have, including assessments you would want completed to help accurately diagnose your character.
