Psychology Diagnosis Biography
In this journey by far, you have learned quite some extraordinary people either from the textbook or from the weekly videos, such as Ted Bundy (Antisocial personality disorder), David Beckham (OCD), Howie Mandel (OCD), Ludwig von Beethoven (Bipolar disorder), Winston Churchill (Bipolar disorder), Napoleon Bonaparte (Bipolar disorder), John Nash (Schizophrenia), Isabel Caro (eating disorder), Jeremy Gillitzer (eating disorder), etc.
In this topic discussion assignment, you are asked to act like a biographer, dig out some sources about an extraordinary person with a mental disorder and write briefly about:
Who this person is? Why is this person extraordinary? Why are you interested in this person?
What was this person’s DSM diagnosis or posthumous diagnosis? What are some symptoms that this person experienced that reflect their mental disorder?
What are the possible origins/etiology/prognosis of this person’s mental disorder?
What are the treatment approaches used for this person, based on the sources you can find? If sources are not available on this, develop a brief treatment plan for this person, given their diagnosis.
What is your critique and/or personal reflection about factors that contribute to this person’s diagnosis and treatment approaches?
Make sure you draw on at least three separate sources (e.g., books, journal articles, web articles, Wikipedia, etc.) with both correctly formatted APA in-text citations and APA references.
