Criminal chosen: David Berkowitz
This needs to be someone high profile so that you can gather enough information to create this assessment. Be sure to look at the ten personality disorders and offer potential diagnoses for this person. Be sure to do the following:
1. Identify the person and their crimes
3. Background and relevant information
4. Review all 5 of the P’s and also discuss the context (precipitating factors- protective factors- predisposing factors- perpetuating factors- presenting factors)
4. Potential diagnoses – provide a justification for these; what criteria do the individual meet, and what evidence from the known information explains this?
5. Treatment – you may review the treatments administered, or, if this is unknown, you can formulate your own ideas and suggestions about the kinds of treatment methods what would be useful in remediating the person’s diagnoses.
6. Outcomes – what ultimately happened to this individual? Were there positive changes based on their treatment and remediation? Why do you think these outcomes occurred?
Your paper should be 2-3 pages, in APA formatting. Please be sure to rely on scholarly material and books for your information – no wikipedia or pop psychology websites, please!
