Abnormal Psychology Movie Reaction Paper
Part I: Watch a movie that focuses on one of the major mental disorders. A list of acceptable movies follows. This includes both classic films and new ones. It has many dramas but several comedies as well. There are several Oscar winners on here, too!
Part II: Write a reaction paper to the movie, focusing on its portrayal of the specific mental disorder. Be sure to specify in your paper which movie you watched!
Did the movie accurately portray the prototypical symptoms? Did the movie endorse any myths or unsubstantiated stereotypes about the disorder?
Were etiological (causal) factors of the occurrence of the disorder in the movie’s character explored? If so, how did these compare to what you have learned?
If they explored causal factors, did they appear to arise from “nature” or “nurture” or both? Explain.
Was treatment for the disorder portrayed and, if so, how was it portrayed?
How did the family cope (if applicable)?
How did society treat the individual in the movie?
(If you watch a movie that focuses on institutional treatment, then your paper will focus on this, rather than the portrayal of a specific disorder. However, you are permitted to briefly explain the different disorders portrayed by the characters at the institution.)
Use your textbook to help you describe the symptoms of the disorder portrayed in the movie and treatment options. Find an additional peer-reviewed journal article and summarize the study that was conducted in the article and what the authors conclude about the disorder and/ or treatment based on their results.
The conclusion of each paper, should address the following:
Hollywood is often accused of stigmatizing and continuing negative stereotypes of mental illness. Do you think this movie falls into this category? Why or why not?
