Character Conceptualization Paper


Assignment #1: Character Conceptualization Paper DraftSubmit a rough draft of your Character Conceptualization Paper here. This draft will be reviewed by a peer who will provide you with feedback, guidance, and new perspectives to consider as you make your final edits. This draft is worth 20 points, but the final paper will be worth 100 points. A description of each of the four sections, along with the page length and points allotted to each section are listed as follows. Remember that writing quality and APA style will also contribute to your grade.1. Summary of important events in the character’s life. Events must apply to the theory/theories in the next section. Do not include unnecessary information (1-2 pages max, 10 points).**Helpful hints** Use the Layla cases as examples for this section. Only provide information about the client that will be important in later sections of the paper. You may use any sources at all for this section (e.g., Wikipedia, your own imagination, etc). We just need a case with enough information so that the rest of the paper makes sense. It’s a good idea to imagine a presenting problem that brings this client to therapy and state it in this section.2. Summary of a psychological theoretical orientation (e.g., psychodynamic; cognitive-behavioral; humanistic; feminist; ecological). You must write about one theoretical orientation that you will later apply to your chosen character. Make sure not to go over the page limit (1-2 pages, 20 points).**Make sure you clearly and accurately explain your theoretical orientation. Cite the Gelso et al chapters or slides as appropriate.***3. Conceptualization of the character from the perspective(s) summarized in the previous section. In this section of your paper, you should apply the theoretical perspective to the character you have selected. Discuss the character’s personality, potential psychological concerns, interpersonal issues, etc. (e.g., What concerns might this character bring to counseling? What relational/social and environmental/societal factors might contribute to these concerns?) Make sure to clearly connect your observations and thoughts about the character with what you know about the psychological theory/theories you wrote about in the second section of this paper. Use citations to support your statements (2-3 pages max, 30 points).**Make sure you use important vocabulary and concepts from your theoretical orientation and specifically apply it to help the reader understand your client’s presenting problems. For example, DO NOT simply say the client has relationship issues that stem from childhood (this could be true from any theoretical perspective. Be very clear in your explanation of how childhood relates to adult relationship disturbances. For example: if you’re using a psychodynamic approach, talk about intrapsychic factors and repetition; If you’re using CBT, talk about the development of irrational thoughts; if you’re using person-centered theory, talk about OVP.4. Treatment strategies. In this section, you should discuss what kind of treatment might help this character if he or she were a counseling client, and why. Again, this section should be written from the theoretical perspectives you chose to summarize in the second section of this paper. (e.g., Do you think individual, couples, and/or group therapy would be helpful for this character, and why? What might the relationship between the therapist and character look like? How would your treatment benefit the client? If you were this character’s therapist, what kind of multicultural issues might arise in your relationship (challenge yourself to think about this even if it isn’t immediately clear to you)?)Discuss social justice principles, antiracism, and how they might relate to this client’s treatment. Use citations to support your statements (2-3 pages max, 30 points).**Answer all of these questions and make sure that your treatment is aligned with your conceptualization of the client and consistent with your theoretical orientation.**5. APA style, grammar, spelling, coherence, organization, writing quality. (10 points). **Refer to the Purdue OWL Website: #2: Reaction Paper #10 Please see attached rubric and cheat sheet for all directions. Use Reaction Paper #3 as a guide to complete this paper. Can use the same format with the subheadings. Please make sure for the “review” section that it’s in response to Meltzer… the “discussion/link the article” section connects Meltzer with the other reading that is attached (Goldstein & Walker)it is important that you don’t make surface-level connections between the reaction paper and the readings! it is not enough to summarize each article and loosely connect them to each other. My advice is that you identify the central themes that each resource is trying to highlight and see if they complement each other. They don’t have to perfectly match, but you should talk about them in conversation with each other to demonstrate how they connect (either in agreement and/or contradiction).For citations, please use other references within the readings if necessary as similar to reaction paper #3
