Transcript of Superhero/Villain Disorder Project - Darth Vader

Borderline Personality Disorder
Darth Vader
Borderline personality disorder is a condition in which people have long-term patterns of unstable or turbulent emotions, such as feelings about themselves and others.
"Frantic efforts to avoid real or imagined abandonment." (1)
"A pattern of unstable and intense interpersonal relationships characterized by alternating between extremes of idealization and devaluation." (1)
"A pattern identity disturbance: markedly and persistently unstable self-image or sense of self ." (1)
"Affective instability due to a marked reactivity of mood" (1)
"Inappropriate, intense anger or difficulty controlling anger." (1)
Anakin's progression
National Institute of Mental Health study suggests that 2% of the population suffers from Borderline Personality Disorder. Women account for 75% of B.P.D. cases.
Most likely, the cause of Anakin's decline into personality disorder came from the death of his mother. Since he could not save her from the Sand People, he feared he would also not be able to save those he loved most.

Twin studies suggests that personality disorders may be inherited, and that the risk of developing one is greater if a close relative (mother or father) have the disorder.
Treatment # 1:
Anakin, do you have any issues with your father? What do you mean you don't have a father? Your mother says she doesn't KNOW how you were conceived? And Qui-Gon Jinn says you must have been conceived by the midi-chlorians in accordance to the Force? hmmm. We might need to explore this further.
As for your wife. You say that she is quite a bit older than you and you met her when Qui-Gon Jinn bought you out of slavery, but not your mother. How do you feel about that?
Maybe Anakin has Mother issues.......
Oedipus complex
Ok Anakin. Let's try a little
free association
. I will say a word and you say the first thing that comes to your mind.
Anakin- the force
Now Anakin, I believe that was a
Freudian slip
. You keep telling me that your mother was enslaved and killed by the Sand People, yet you said "Abandoned." Why do you think that is? Do you feel she abandoned you or that you abandoned her to become a Jedi?
You say that you continue to have dreams that your wife is dying, just like you did of your mother. Since Padme is a bit of a cougar, do you think that she, in a way, has replaced your mother and that is why you are
this fear of losing her?
(sound of being choked by the force)
Or is it that you just fear losing the one you love the most?
Treatment # 2:
Dialectical behavior therapy
(cognitive-behavioral therapy)
Anakin, I am so glad you made it to our
weekly individual session
. Have you been keeping up your
? Good. Have you noticed any patterns about what is triggering your outbursts or how you feel during them?
How have you been doing with
interpersonal effectiveness
? How have you handled the urge to follow the Sith Lord to save Padme? What advice would you give to me or to Obi-Wan Kenobi if one of us had the same urges? Do you feel you can follow your own advise?
group therapy
this week, we will be working on how we handle stressful situations. Anakin, pretend that Jar Jar Binks here is Padme and you have found her confiding in Obi-Wan. Knowing this would upset you, what do you feel would be the best way to handle this situation?
Anakin, let's
identify and label
how it makes you feel when Obi-Wan tells you that you can't do something. What is an action, opposite of your instinct, that you feel you could take in this situation?
