Here is a copy and paste of the instructions my professor gave me, if you need any help I will gladly do my best to assist you with anything. There is a part that mentions “city college library” which essentially is a library website for my school which is easy to find I hope. I don’t mind at all if the paper isn’t AMAZING, I just have so much to do at the moment and this is going to take a toll on me. I would appreciate your help.
You are to use the film either the film Heavenly Creatures, a 1994 New Zealand film directed by Peter Jackson, or Darren Aronovsky’s Requiem for a Dream as the basis for your paper. If you choose Heavenly Creatures, your paper will include a discussion of adolescence, psychosis and personality. If you choose Requiem for a Dream, you can focus on either the adolescent main characters or the maternal figure who gets addicted to amphetamines in an effort to stay thin. For Requiem for a Dream, your paper will focus on the intersect between addiction and personality. Your final papers are not to be written together. I want to see your own individual thinking and writing. You will need considerable time to bring all of the components of the paper together
Here is the general structure of the paper. All questions must be addressed. Although there is no limit on length, 10 pages, with a substantial section based on research, should do it.
Introduction: Storyline and Characters: 5 points – No more than one page
Summarize the premise and plot of the film or story. Be sure to include setting (time and place), genre (fiction, true story, memoir) and any other detail that helps set the frame. Don’t make this section overly detailed and long, but be sure to have picked out enough specific detail so that you can back up your diagnostic impressions.
Describe, in general, the character who depicts the disorder. How does the movie or story portray him/her overall? Is the character likeable, sympathetic, evil, annoying, confusing?
Diagnosis: 15 points — each of the following questions are worth 5 points
Describe the character’s mental disorder.
How does it compare a disorder described in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual on Mental Disorders (DSM V). This should include an enumeration of which criteria are present as well as characteristics which are not consistent with what you know about this disorder?
3. How does the character’s disorder appear to be impacting his/her level of distress, overall functioning and relationships?
Explanation and Treatment: (15 points) each subsection is worth 5 points — Each subsection is judged by the rubric below
1.How does the movie either directly illustrate or allude to the background and cause of the patient’s disorder? What do you see as the precipitating and predisposing factors of this disorder? How do you explain the origins of his disorder based on hints or other information given? Do you think this explanation is valid? Why?
2. Can you think of another type of explanation other than the one given (i.e. biological/ family-social/ psychodynamic? Include as part of this a discussion of the psychodynamic and biological models as they explain the disorder of the character you chose.
3. How does the film deal with the treatment of this disorder – either explicitly or implicitly?

Research Perspectives (Very important!:(30 points — 10 points for each article) Find 3 recent research articles about your disorder. This can be most easily done by going to PsychArticles on the Library Website; if you can’t find anything there, go to PsychInfo and see if you can locate the journal amongst the City College Library online journals. These articles must be from peer reviewed journals, not websites. Website citations will get scored 0.
Summarize the findings of the articles you chose. You must critically evaluate the methodology of the studies. How does the picture of the disorder you gain from the research article challenge or enhance the picture you got from the film?
