The purpose of this writing assignment is to have you conduct a bit of research on mental disorders in childhood with a popular form of media's portrayal of such illnesses.
Instructions: First, select a movie or TV show in which you believe one of the main CHILD-AGED characters (between the ages of infancy to 18) has some form of mental illness. This is not difficult to do because there are many, many movies and TV shows that fit this requirement. The disorder may or may not be formally diagnosed or stated in the movie or TV show; however, you are going to be the clinician. It is also possible that the movie or TV show may formally offer a diagnosis with which you disagree, which is fine, as long as you back up your own diagnosis with supporting evidence from the movie or TV show and from your textbook and/or the Internet. Alternatively, the movie or TV show may offer a formal diagnosis with which you completely agree; however, you must still find evidence that supports the diagnosis and state why you agree.
If you really have difficulty finding a movie or TV show, contact me for some suggestions, but try finding something on your own first. If you aren't sure if the movie or TV show is appropriate for this assignment, please ask before you write! The movie or TV show does not have to specifically be about mental illness; however, you are going to diagnose a main CHILD-AGED or TEEN-AGED character with a mental disorder no matter what the movie or TV show is really about. The movie or TV show may be from any genre that you choose, such as a drama, action, comedy, thriller, foreign film, documentary, etc. I don't mind if you watch a movie or TV show that you've seen before. Perhaps this time around, you'll view it from a different perspective.
