Case Analysis (3-5 pages)
Your assignment is to choose a person (fictional or nonfictional) from a book, movie, headlines, television, etc. Choose someone your instructor is likely to know. If in doubt, ask. Describe this person from the viewpoint of one of the theories we’ve covered. Analyze the person’s behavior, feelings, personality from the viewpoint of the theorist. Be consistent and thorough. Consider why this person acts as he or she does, conceptualize problems in terms of the theory, describe what kind of childhood such a person must have had. Let your imagination go as you hypothesize about what your theorist might say about this person!
