The Catcher in the Rye Psychological Analysis

The Catcher in the Rye Psychological Analysis—50 points Task: You are a psychologist. Based on the events that involve the patient, the patient’s interaction with other characters, and interviews (the stuff we hear that no one else does) with the patient himself, you are to write a psychological evaluation of the narrator in “The Catcher in the Rye” focusing in on the Five Stages of Grief. Your profile will be presented to the patient’s family. This is not your typical essay. You will set it up as shown below. However, the in-text citations and the Works Cited page will have to be in MLA format (refer to page 3). The profile must include the following components: Psychological Analysis (this is your title) Assessment – Your assessment of his character, including his background and current family and living situation. This section should be at least 4-5 sentences. Diagnosis – A determination as to whether or not the patient is suffering from a psychological disorder by focusing in on the Five Stages of Grief. If he is, first identify which one/s, then list the typical symptoms or manifestations. Finally, explain why you’ve made the diagnosis, using three pieces of textual evidence from our pre-selected websites, and including at least three quotations from the novel, to support your diagnosis. This section should be at least 1 page.

Citing non-print or sources from the Internet With more and more scholarly work being posted on the Internet, you may have to cite research you have completed in virtual environments. While many sources on the Internet should not be used for scholarly work, some Web sources are perfectly acceptable for research. When creating in-text citations for electronic, film, or Internet sources, remember that your citation must reference the source in your Works Cited. Sometimes writers are confused with how to craft parenthetical citations for electronic sources because of the absence of page numbers, but often, these sorts of entries do not require a page number in the parenthetical citation. For electronic and Internet sources, follow the following guidelines: • Include in the text the first item that appears in the Work Cited entry that corresponds to the citation (e.g. author name, article name, website name, film name). • You do not need to give paragraph numbers or page numbers based on your Web browser’s print preview function. • Unless you must list the Web site name in the signal phrase in order to get the reader to the appropriate entry, do not include URLs in-text. Only provide partial URLs such as when the name of the site includes, for example, a domain name, like or as opposed to writing out or Works Cited Basic Book Format The author’s name or a book with a single author′s name appears in last name, first name format. The basic form for a book citation is: Last Name, First Name. Title of Book. City of Publication, Publisher, Publication Date. Book with One Author Gleick, James. Chaos: Making a New Science. Penguin, 1987. Citing an Entire Web Site It is a good idea to list your date of access because web postings are often updated, and information available on one date may no longer be available later. When using the URL, be sure to include the complete address for the site except for the https://. Editor, author, or compiler name (if available). Name of Site. Version number, Name of institution/organization affiliated with the site (sponsor or publisher), date of resource creation (if available), URL, DOI or permalink. Date of access (if applicable).
