Possible treatment.

Introduction
This assignment provides another opportunity to understand the uniqueness of the Personality Disorders and how they are different from the other disorders we have studied. It is important to recognize that they fit into a unique class of their own. There is significant overlap with the characteristics of the different personality disorders which adds to the challenge of understanding. One of the significant characteristics is that they rarely identify that they participate in the problem. For example, a person with and Anxiety Disorder knows they have a problem. Generally speaking, a person with a Personality Disorder does not identify that they have a problem–the problem is usually projected onto others–“they” are the problem.
Directions
Present a character from a movie, TV or a book who you think is a good candidate for one of the several Personality Disorders listed in the Chapter 15 of the text. Do not post the same character that someone else has already posted. If that character has already been posted, then you need to find another character.
The text needs to be used as your primary source of information for this assignment.
Assignment needs to list each area of this assignment by number when addressing each area (listed below).
Assignment needs to be a minimum of 300 words.
Disorder I chose is: Schizoid Personality Disorder
Discuss Each Area about the Character You Chose
1. Describe the character and the specific Personality Disorder that you think this character has. The description needs to be detailed so the reader will have an understanding of the character.
2. List the diagnostic criteria and the number of criteria required for a diagnosis for this particular Personality Disorder.
3. Indicate which of the criteria the character meets with a description of behaviors that supports each of the diagnostic criteria. Remember–the character needs to meet the expected number of criteria needed for this diagnosis. The diagnosis should not be given if the character does not meet the number needed.
4. Possible treatment.
5. Possible medication.
6. On a continuum from 0 to 5 rate the severity of the Character’s problems from non-problematic (0) to extremely problematic (5) and justify your observations.
7. Prognosis.

What was(were) the specific research question(s) they were trying to answer?
Method:
Summarize the method for the study the authors reported. Including:
a brief description of the subjects
a description of what was measured including operational definitions (e.g., how the behavior was measured, etc.)
what the subjects did during the study

Results:
Describe the results found in each of the studies. Don’t focus too much on the statistics or numbers.
Focus on the key result.
Place particular importance on results that provide an answer to the research question you identified in the Introduction.
For the General Discussion:
State what answer was found for the research questions and what results gave them the answer.
What is the important knowledge contributed by this study?
What do these results tell us about the effects of warnings on behavior?
How are these results useful?

Case Study
Anna is a 9-year-old third-grade student in a public school on the outskirts of a large industrial city. She is the oldest of three children who live in an apartment with their mother, a 29-year-old White woman recently diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. Despite her young age, Anna’s history is complicated. Anna’s biological father, Walter, is a 37-year-old man who emigrated from Eastern Europe in his early 20s. He married Anna’s mother, Karen, when she was 19 years old. The couple married hastily and had a child, Anna, but Walter abandoned the family shortly after Anna’s birth. Walter and Karen had fought constantly about his problems with alcohol. Karen was particularly upset about Walter’s behavior because her father, now deceased, had suffered from alcoholism and left her mother without sufficient resources to care for herself.
Alone with a child to support and only a high school degree, Karen went to work in the office of a small family-owned business. She met Frank, one of the drivers who worked sporadically for the company. They married within a few months of meeting and, within another year, had a son named John. With Frank’s grudging consent, Karen decided not to tell Anna about her biological father. She reasoned that Anna deserved to believe that Frank, who filled the father’s role to both children, was her parent. Anna was developing typically and seemed to be attached to Frank. However, unknown to Karen, Frank had some problems of his own. As a young man, he had been incarcerated for theft and had an inconsistent employment history. The family struggled to stay together through many ups and downs. When Anna was 6, Karen became pregnant again. Frank wanted Karen to have an abortion because he did not think the family’s finances could support another child. Karen refused, saying that she would take on another job once the new baby was born. Ultimately, the marriage did not survive the couple’s many stresses, and Karen and Frank were divorced when Anna was 7.
Karen’s situation at work is tenuous because of her medical condition. Her employer balks at making accommodations for her, and she fears she might be let go. After the divorce, Karen filed for child support, and Frank was directed to pay a certain amount each month for the three children, but Frank was outraged that he should pay for Anna’s care because she was not his biological child. Frank told Anna the “truth” that he was not her biological father during a challenging conversation. Karen, still unable to deal with this issue, insisted to Anna that Frank was her biological parent. Karen could not bring herself to mention Walter, whose existence had never been mentioned to the children before. Karen desperately needed the money for Anna’s support, especially because she had amassed substantial credit card debt. She felt her only pleasure was watching shopping shows on TV and ordering items for her children.
In school, Anna is struggling to keep up with her peers. Her academic performance is a whole grade level behind, and her teachers are concerned. The school Anna attends has high academic standards and intense pressures for achievement. Anna behaves immaturely with peers and adults, alternating between excessive shyness and overly affectionate behavior. She does not appear to have any friendships within the class.

Are these factors in agreement with what psychologists find to be common among those who live long life?

According to the CDC, the current average life expectancy is 78.7 years old (https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/fastats/life-expectancy.htm)
although some people live much longer, even up to 120 years. Based on the CDC fact sheet above and other sources for evidence, what factors contribute to those who live well beyond the average age? Consider lifelong healthcare regimens, attitudes, cultural factors, and behaviors. Are these factors in agreement with what psychologists find to be common among those who live long life? Support your reasoning with information from the text and other course materials.
