I have to write an essay about a celebrity or a character by completing the following question:

'Discuss the psychological and biological explanations of ................ behaviour.'

Choose a person with a particular behaviour and try to explain it using one the 5 approaches.


Examples you could use:

The joker’s psychosis and unusual behaviour.
Celebrities with addictions or mental health issues such as OCD or anxiety etc.
Fictional character.

I really need help on who to write about. Someone that shows most of the approaches such as biological, learning, humanistic, cognitive and psychodynamic. Please help i have a day to do it!! my teacher is new and is not the best at teaching

Some useful pieces of advice here. Choose someone famous like Britney Spears. Focus on her mental health problems and tell tale life events etc. Give some old examples of situations that clearly showed her mental health struggles and how she overcame them eventually. Describe how and why her mental health basically declined and then she recovered slowly.
Research online and make some notes to use as the fodder for your homework essay. Also try to write a bit about how her family intervened to help her. Aim to provide short logical explanations of her odd behaviour throughout your entire essay. Keep referring back to the original question or ensure that you have notes.
Be aware of the total number of marks which are given for the whole essay. Plan your essay carefully. Write four or five paragraphs. Quote reference sources correctly at the end of your essay.

I did a similar assignment a few months ago. I can help you with the paper to guide you as you write. As long as you do not submit it as your own.
