This assignment is meant to be used as an application opportunity for students after they learn about the various perspectives of psychology (biological, evolutionary, psychodynamic, humanistic, cognitive, behavioral, social-cultural, psychobiosocial).
The "Brain in Love" (season 2, episode 4) episode of Family Guy contains a number of psychological references that can be utilized to complete this assignment. As they watch the episode, students fill out a chart analyzing how each of the different perspectives is represented in the show.
This assignment can be easily adapted for other shows or films simply by changing a few words. I have also used it for some Seinfeld episodes in the past that contained psych references.
Answer Key is included as the second page of the document. Please warn students that the episode contains some adult language and themes.
