During the course term, students will watch one film, and create a diagnosis of one of the characters in the movie. The film must involve a character struggling with addictive behavior. Also, provide a one page case analysis in which you conceptualize the client’s issues. In addition, students provide a counseling treatment plan.
Students should use the treatment planning article in the Files section to guide them. In addition, students will present at least one treatment/therapy approach appropriate to the case. Students will include at least 5 scholarly resources that support that this approach has efficacy or is considered an evidence-based approach. Supporting material will be presented with in-text citations and a reference list using APA style.
Many films with addictive behavior themes exist. If you are not aware of one, please post a question in the Discussion Forum, under “General Discussion.” Also, if you Google “substance abuse in movies,” or a similar key term you will locate many such films. Finally, the films MUST include addictive behavior (i.e., they can’t just involve a general mental health diagnosis, although they can involve dually diagnosed persons).
