Case Study Assignment: Enriching Understanding of Mental Disorders through Narrative Accounts Due: 11/16/22
Please use the book Hunger A memoir of(
My) Body by Roxane Gay
Instructions for assignment:
It is easy to fall into a mentality of “us and them” when learning, studying and working with clients who struggle with mental health issues. This assignment is designed to expose students to narrative accounts of persons suffering from various psychiatric problems, in an effort to remove the sterile clinical barriers that can develop when we “take the person out of the diagnosis.” For this assignment, you will read a fictional or ethnographic book that relates to a particular mental disorder. You will use your reactions to the book—both intellectual and emotional, along with information from class readings and discussion—to enhance your understanding of the mental disorder described in the book. There are two parts to this assignment:
Reaction (2 pages, double spaced) Write a short summary of the book. Discuss your reactions to the story and characters including the following in your discussion: 1. How did you feel as you were reading the book? 2. Could you empathize with the characters? Why or why not? 3. What, if anything, in the characters’ story were you able to relate to your own experiences? 4. What feelings did you come away with after finishing the book—e.g., sympathetic, critical, hopeful, confused, uplifted, upset, sad, happy, enlightened, and so on. 5. What did you learn that you did not already know? 6. Do you believe the book painted an accurate picture of the characters and problems? why or why not?

Analysis (2 double spaced) Using the DSM-5, provide an assessment/diagnosis of one of the characters from the book. You may include a formal PIE assessment or choose to address PIE related factors within your assessment. The assessment should be written up as a clinical format. Be sure to describe your decision-making process as you arrive at your diagnoses or assessment of the character and include relevant social work considerations.
