Movies & Mental Illness
Using Films to Understand PsychopathologyBook - 1999
The text mirrors the table of contents of a typical abnormal psychology text, except it uses a main film to illustrate the disorder. Questions are integrated throughout to provide teaching flexibility as well as stimulate critical thinking and classroom discussion. Films may be viewed independently, in small groups, or in class. A comprehensive appendix provides a listing of films and offers the student and instructor a resource for many years to come. The book is designed to supplement a main abnormal psychology textbook, and will be available as a prepack with Abnormal Psycholgy, Eighth Edition, by Alloy, Jacobson, and Acocella.
