(1) Psychological Health, Victims, & The Media
Numerous psychological studies have explored the link between media and behavior. In this case, students (you) are going to examine the possible relationship between popular/mainstream stories and victim phenotypes. To do this, and to encourage your engagement with the material and understanding, instead of one larger research paper, students are required to submit 2 review & reflect papers. The papers will be double-spaced, 1” margins, and should have a cover page and a reference section, and should be 3-5 pages in content length (meaning that the absolute minimum length should be 5 pages, with 1 cover page, 3 pages of content/text, and 1 reference section page). These are not formal papers; however, spelling and grammar do count, and citations should be in APA 6th format. Please see for a helpful formatting resource. Further instructions are on the following page.
Paper topics: You will select one from each of the following:

(1) Select one book (popular fact or fiction, such as something from a main-stream Best Sellers list, or Book Club list—New York, Oprah, etc.), which has either a thematic component of victimization, or the protagonist (principal character) who has been victimized.
(2) Select a popular movie (something non-independent and that is/was mainstream) OR 2 one-hour episodes of the same show (such as two episodes of Jerry Springer, or two episodes of Law & Order SVU, etc.), which has either a thematic component of victimization, or the principal character has been victimized.
Your purpose is to evaluate one book, and one of the movie/television programs, to examine the “media” portrayal of the victims of that particular type of abuse/crime. You will evaluate the two on the following:

• How accurately did the book/show demonstrate the profile of that type of victim?
• How did the victim respond?
• How did others respond to the victim before, during, and after the event?
• What, if any, was the outcome for the victim?
• Did the victim receive help/demonstrate healing?
• Compare and contrast it with what we have learned in class about that “type” or profile of victim/crime
• Put yourself into that character…do you think you (based on your personal experiences) would have responded differently? Why or why not?
• If you were a real-life victim of that type of abuse/crime, how do you think you would feel watching/reading this?
• How do you think your family/friends would respond?
• Do you think that the way in which it was handled/portrayed would help, or hinder, your healing process?
• If you were the director/author/screen-writer, knowing what you know about victimization, what would you change?
