Overview

Schizophrenia: A Case Study of the Movie A BEAUTIFUL MIND - Second Edition by Francine R Goldberg, Ph.D.

This e-book is designed to be used as a companion to the Universal Studios film, A BEAUTIFUL MIND. It presents a unique and entertaining learning opportunity for both mental health professionals and those who are not trained in mental health. It brings the diagnosis of schizophrenia to life with its scene-by-scene information about the movie. For mental health professionals it serves as an entertaining up-to-date refresher course with a chance to earn continuing education credits. For non-mental health professionals it allows the movie to be an entertaining vehicle that educates readers to recognize and understand schizophrenia; know the potential risks to individuals, their families, friends, co-workers and fellow students, if the illness is untreated; and to know about options for a safe and productive life for individuals with the illness. The e-book discusses diagnostic symptoms; acute and long term pharmacological treatment; rehabilitation; and disability management for the social, vocational and educational impairments from the illness to individuals with schizophrenia.
