Movies and Mental Illness
Using Films to Understand Psychopathology
by Danny Wedding, Ryan M. Niemiec
Movies and Mental Illness, written by experienced clinicians and teachers who are themselves movie aficionados, has established a great reputation as a uniquely enjoyable and highly memorable text for learning about psychopathology. The new edition has been fully updated to include DSM-5 and ICD-10 diagnoses, dozens of evocative and informative frame grabs, a full film index, “Authors’ Picks,” sample syllabus, more international films and shorts. The core clinical chapters each use a fabricated case history and Mini-Mental State Examination along with synopses and discussions about specific movies to explain, teach, and encourage discussion about all the most important mental health disorders.
Target Group: Students and teachers of psychology, psychiatry, social work, medicine, nursing, counselling, literature or media studies, and anyone interested in mental health.
Rights Sold: German, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Spanish, Turkish
