Silence of the Lamb and the character is Buffalo Bill

Pick a character from a favorite book (fiction) or from a favorite movie. Choose a character that you believe has a psychological disorder. Describe the character and his or her problems, using this discussion as a foundation for diagnosing the individual and planning a treatment program. Make your diagnosis using the DSM-V diagnosis classification.

Carefully take the reader through the steps you followed to decide on a diagnosis and a type of treatment (e.g., therapy, possible medication, referrals to other professionals). Describe any other recommendations you have, including assessments you would want completed to help accurately diagnose your character. Make sure you have plenty of information to support your diagnosis (i.e., clarify why the character meets the criteria according to the DSM-V).

If you feel you can make no diagnosis, discuss your rationale and state it clearly.

  • Step I: Discuss your diagnosis and provide justification using the DSM-V and at least one additional relevant source.
  • Step II: Discuss your diagnosis and how it would be done using the DSM-V and at least one additional relevant source.
