Psychological orders in Movies
These are the instructions for the assignment. If you can please write about the movie Joker(2019), thank you.
Please watch a movie that you think deals with or portrays a psychological issue. If you do not have one in mind, this Wikipedia (Links to an external site.) page has movies that are associated with different disorders. Once you have decided on a disorder you will need to visit dsm5.org. Capture the criteria for diagnosis, and then use this to take notes during your movie. This will help you to determine if and how the movie talks about the different symptoms. You will be writing a review of this movie thinking about how they portray a psychological disorder. You will write the paper in three parts:
Part I: What is the movie you watched? What is the character’s psychological disorder? What symptoms does this character present with? How are they described in the movie? This section should be about ½ a page or 250 words (I will count).
Part II: Look in your textbook, or online, and describe what a therapist or a psychologist would say about the disorder presented in the movie. What are the clinical symptoms that people with this disorder present with? This section should be about ½ a page or 250 words
Part III: This is where you give your review of how the movie did describe the actual disorder. This section should be about ½ a page or 250 words
