Overview

"Films are a powerful medium for teaching students of psychology, social work, medicine, nursing, counselling, and also literature or media studies about psychopathology. The 15 core clinical chapters of this book thus each use a case history along with synopses and scenes from one or two specific, often well-known films to explain and teach students about the most important disorders encountered in clinical practice. Helpful teaching tools such as suggestions for class discussion and key issues to consider while viewing films are provided throughout." Now in an updated edition, with expanded coverage of sleep, eating, impulse control, and adjustment disorders, as well as sexual dysfunction and violence, this book has established a great reputation as an enjoyable and highly memorable supplementary teaching tool for abnormal psychology classes.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Brett C. Plyler, M.D.(Northwestern Memorial Hospital)
Description: This book covers a wide variety of psychopathology and uses film as medium to help understand the different ones.
Purpose: The purpose is to help students learn psychopathology through the use of movies. These are worthy objectives and the book meets them.
Audience: It is written for both instructors and students of psychopathology and film by authors who are credible authorities.
Features: This book explores a wide variety of psychopathology from anxiety disorders to personality disorders to mental retardation through the use of movies. Each chapter takes a fictional case study of a movie character and examines this and other films that help explain the particular psychological issue at hand. An appendix of films with short descriptions explores each disorder that allows for quick reference of a film needed to demonstrate an illness. There are some editorial miscues on some of the charts.
Assessment: This is an interesting book that could be very useful as a teaching tool for both instructors and students of any level. It would definitely get students more involved and make it easier for them to understand and remember various psychopathologies. The case studies are fairly well done and they explore each disorder in depth. This second edition includes sleep, eating disorders, violence which all seem to be important additions. The book is fun to read as well, and I enjoyed reviewing it.
