Cabrea Ching University of Maryland University College Psychology 353 December 12, 2018 Applied Final Project - Precious
Intro To start off, the movie for the character that I chose to analyze is Precious and the character who will be receiving the diagnosis is Claireece Precious Jones who is normally presented as Precious in the movie. The movie typically revolved around Precious who lives with her abusive mother and step father. Precious and her family reside in the Harlem area of New York and it is not easy due to them being on welfare because of her mothers’ unemployment. Precious is just a normal 16 year old girl who tends to suffer from obesity. Precious is a victim of numerous traumas such as rape, child abuse and domestic violence. Overall it is a mixture of mental and physical abuse. She also tends to suffer from low self esteem due to being molested by her father in which resulted in her getting pregnant twice in two different time frames. Most would believe that Precious has an eating disorder as well. Precious tends to go into her world of mind where everything seems nice and pleasant. It is almost like a getaway world for her from reality. Precious is very often bullied because of her weight even in the midst of her being pregnant.
